About politics and movies

The telugu movie Godavari is an interesting and amusing one. I remembered it for several reasons... the most primary one regarding its take on politics. The protagonist of the movie comes back from the States and intends to join politics!! He goes about meeting various political parties expressing his desire to join politics for public welfare and presents his certificates and all for verification. He is scoffed in every place!

But the whole movie is an interesting take on social attitudes towards women, marriage, love and role of men in society. The director Shekar Kammula really has a knack for conveying profound truths in a very simple but clever, convincing and humorous manner. His earlier film, Anand too was a great lesson! So was the latest movie, Leader.
