Description for Court
A sewerage worker's dead body is found inside a manhole in Mumbai. An ageing folk singer is tried in court on charges of abetment of suicide. He is accused of performing an inflammatory song which might have incited the worker to commit the act. As the trial unfolds, the personal lives of the lawyers and the judge involved in the case are observed outside the court.

However, the film itself is quite remarkable, and a very impressive and mature accomplishment from the writer-director who was under 30 when he made it. Nothing dramatic or exciting ever happens in this court case. Everything is underplayed to the point of dullness. But the genius of this film is how it manages to be so sharply and relentlessly satirical about our institutions and our society without having to make any of the characters ridiculous, comical or villainous, and without even much of a plot! The scenes seem so humdrum, life-like and random, that it was only near the end that I realized how deliberate and well-controlled the directing had been. This film is a masterful example of a director knowing exactly what he wants to say, and then achieving it. It's a subtle, deceptively simple, and supremely self-confident piece of film-making. Please do watch it.
