Matrubhoomi: A Nation Without Women

Saturday, February 16, 2013

In a rural region of India fathers drown their daughters after birth because they prefer sons, who secure their future. After years of girl killings, there is now not a single woman more. The men leave on their desire for the same sex or animals. Pappu (Chittaranjan Giri) is even a boy (Latesh Chaudhari) foisted as a woman. As far as want the sons of wealthy Ramcharan not let (Sudhir Pandey) come.


They force her father to look for a woman with the help of the priest Jagannath (Piyush Mishra). And the priest will find it by accident. He arranges with Pratap (Rohitash Gaud) a deal: He gets 5 lakhs (500,000 rupees) and 5 cows when his daughter Kalki (Tulip Joshi) with Ram Charan's five sons Rakesh (Pankaj Jha), Shailesh (Deepak Kumar), Brijesh (Sanjay Kumar), Lokesh (Shrivas Naidu) and Sooraj (Sushant Singh) is married. Pratap tells his daughter is now on each weekday other than a son bedfellow and the remaining two days, the father has the right to have sex.

Kalki keeps the shame only because the youngest son Sooraj, is in love with her. This arouses the envy of the rest of the family. Matrubhoomi is, strictly speaking, a sci-fi movie. He plays in a fictional future without women. How does this happen, makes the oppressive input sequence significantly: men in front of a house to hear baby crying and begin to celebrate. The midwife comes out and announces Ladki - a girl.

The men fall silent and in the next scene, the father lowers the child in a barrel full of milk. He prays next year a boy. The scene is not far-fetched because in many societies without functioning retirement are men that supposedly only capital for retirement. Women on the other hand cost and dowries bring the family with no income. Therefore, many are drowned. In the case of India, the UN estimates that 35 million women live too little in the country, this is mainly due to the girl murders in rural areas.

Matrubhoomi exaggerated this catastrophic scenario in a future without women. That it even comes to that, is biologically difficult, but it serves as a setup for an interesting critique of society. The trick has the disadvantage that it takes a part of the force of the criticism - one can argue that bad the situation (still) is not, so it would get no woman as bad as Kalki. But it allows the construction of the story a bitter drama.

This has to endure particularly Kalki. Your daily suffering, whenever a new man stands next to the bed, feature film debutant Manish Jha captures oppressive. Later, the situation for the girl escalated when the whore of the whole village and his father acting as pimps, rather than intervene. When he learns that even father Ram Charan sleeps with her, he does not bring it about back but again conceded 100,000 rupees. Men are the last in the film. To make things even more drastically, also the wrath of the villagers discharges to the woman.

It is blamed for the bloody escalation which the small Raghu does life in one of the most violent and brutal sequence. Raghu is one of the few males who mean well with Kalki. But as a child he remains helpless. Another is Sooraj, played by Ram Gopal Varma -Mime Sushant Singh. Singh is one of the more well-known name in the cast. Most others are unknown heads or those from the independent sector. Behind the project, however, was a known quantity: The couple Boney Kapoor and Sridevi . The two produced the drama and thus proved their social commitment. Because "Matrubhoomi" shakes undoubtedly.

There are scenes that are pitch black - as if a man's lust just misses after enjoying a porn to a cow, the holy animal of India. Such subversive scenes there are some, and yet ultimately remains the suffering of Kalki at the center. "Matrubhoomi" laments its torment on behalf of those of millions of women. He does this a little didactic and sensational - but he shakes on. And on this issue anyway. The film was shot in 2003 and then went into the festival trail. In India it was launched in 2005 at the cinema - and in six languages: Hindi, Bengali, Tamil, Telugu, Gujarati and Bhojpuri. He flopped anyway throughout the country.


How to summarize a plot with multiple twists. Not easy, then present the different characters, briefly explain their relationship and perhaps will we get what is closest to it. The main core, the heart of Anjathey is friendship between Satya and Kiruba. Son of both policemen, living in the same colony, that's the only two things that bind. As much Kiruba is honest, straight, having a purpose in life, to succeed the assistance of Sub-Inspector as Satya is a little thug who hangs out with his band.

The day Satya, through corruption, become SI and Kiruba, despite his intelligence and determination fails, the relations between the two friends will significantly degrade. Around them, their families, with the sister of love Kiruba secretly Satya, their friends, including a small troublemaker to an arm which we guess the end if we saw more of a thriller in our lives, and of course, the wicked. Yes, because we can not simply one: Loganathan and Daya are associated in a business of kidnapping girls influential people. The roads will cross, but especially to the transformation into a Satya man of integrity that we will see.

Anjathe represents a revival in Tamil cinema but can be a painful experience for the viewer. Indeed, the film is far from keeping its promises, and shows an appalling amateurism in terms of assembly. Rarely have I been so uncomfortable facing a movie, even coming to doubt the quality of my DVD. Some scenes are linked together without any respect the cuts are too direct and visible, bad job after all.

Not to mention the length of the film, which exceeds three hours, is exceptionally rare in the southern industries amateurism of one side and desire to impose a "leg" missed the other. Indeed, Mysskin tries to impose his style, his way of telling a story and especially filming. While most of his ideas are not bad in any case, they are generally poorly fed. Loose, gradual changes Satya led by the play of light, a minion Daya which you never see the face, then all voltage loaded scene filmed at ground level. It is thus seen that the feet of the protagonists for almost five minutes ...

Let us turn to the actors. If Narain is pretty good in his role, this is not his best performance, or that of the film elsewhere. A little too much sometimes surjeu for one who is not really cut out for such a role, especially in scenes that require emotion, in which he remains unmoved. The great revelation of Anjaathey is Ajmal Ameer who portrays Kiruba. For a star, it marks the spirits always blowing nuance to his character. Honest, yes, but who loves and forgives the gaps of his best friend. Thug yes, but soon realizes that the vicious circle in which he came out of revenge.

Ajmal is a player to follow, for his abilities one sees clearly here, and for his unusual route: the young man was a doctor in Ukraine and decided to return to the homeland to try his luck in a career that passionate. Vijayalakshmi, as we discovered in the excellent Chennai 600028, is totally underutilized, its role seems to have been written in a hurry, just to introduce a wave of love story absolutely not developed. Women do not really belong in the male world of the police and gangs, except that of stooges. Mysskin even trying to get a message that goes far above us, endowing his wicked Daya a penchant for young girls extremely disturbing.

Speaking of Daya is Prasanna in total employment against which inherited the gift. The actor is not comfortable in the role of evil, it shows what is more it was sporting a ridiculous wig, intended to emphasize his unhealthy side. Far from helping to assume this character, wig captures our gaze and we spend more time wondering how it takes and whether it can fly away when he runs, rather than fear Daya.

Three hours may seem very long when a story is poorly developed, especially when it is not broken by 6 traditional songs. Anjathey has only three, including two pure success. Leave aside the song romantic setting there to satisfy producers, whose originality lies in its multiple breaks to advance the story. Kannadhasan Karaikudi and Kathazha Kannala are two pure delight, whether in words, wish to acids first in its lightness for the second.

In conclusion, a failed movie, which nevertheless left with a head without bad pun, with its main idea of exploring the descent into hell of a saint and redemption of a thug, but marred by too many detours in history and an unfinished assembly work. Nevertheless Anjathey met with great success in Tamil Nadu, ranking among the hits of the year. To see an idea but with the remote control in hand to avoid falling asleep ...
