Antardwand deals with the topic of bridegroom kidnappings in the hinterland of Bihar. The film also shows the feudal set up in the heart of the country where the womenfolk in the family are reduced to being providers of endless cups of tea with no say in family matters.

The film is stark and gritty and makes no attempts to either sugar coat the issue or show it up in a funny manner as Peepli did with farmer suicides. You find yourself getting exhausted with the emotional turmoil that the kidnapped guy as well as the hapless girl he is married to, go through. I sighed at the exact time and as deeply as the bride on screen did and I realized at that time how much of myself I had invested in the movie while watching it and how hopeless I felt about the situation.

The ending seemed a bit revolutionary and unreal to me but when boys can be kidnapped, beaten up and forced to get married stone drunk, anything is possible.

The performances are very good uniformly and the set direction and costumes very authentic. However, the casting of the mother (Sumukhi Pendse) and sister in law (Jaya Bhattacharya) seemed a bit out of place. They did not look local like the heroine did and towards the end the heroines accent slipped disconcertingly from the local dialect to a regular Hindi.

But these are minor quibbles about an overall powerful film. I would recommend you watch it to get a glimpse of the complex reality that is our country.
