Court

Court

First-time Indian filmmaker Chaitanya Tamhane contributes this confident, quiet dissection of the Indian legal system. When folk singer (real-life singer/social advocate Vira Sathidar) is arrested for allegedly "inspiring" a poor sewage worker's suicide with his lyrics, a seemingly endless trial is launched. As the legal proceedings drag on, the film wanders off with the various characters in court, creating a widespread portrait of modern-day Mumbai. In English, Marathi, Gujarati and Hindi with English subtitles. FULL REVIEW: Probing Indian drama picks judicial system apart piece by piece by Devin D. O’Leary (7/30/2015). 116 minutes Unrated.
