Dekh Tamasha Dekh is a very serious movie. I saw 2 States in the morning show and to shift myself from a romantic state to one of fear and despair was quite something let me tell you.

The story is set in a small village with very strong Hindu and Muslim factions. A man married to a Muslim, living in a Muslim are with a Muslim name dies and both sides claim his body. The Hindus claim he was born a Hindu, the Muslims say he converted. In the power struggle between the 2 factions, an anonymous rickshaw puller becomes a hero with large cutouts marking his funeral procession. The police won't do anything, a rich man plays politics, a Hindu Muslim romance ends in tragedy and a historian gets his books burnt. The end of the movie shows the futility of everything and the nexus between the powers that be at every level of public life.

The story progresses kind of sluggishly preferring instead to highlight each incident that happens as a smaller story in itself. What comes out is the anger, grief and helplessness of the local population who are just pawns in the larger picture.

If you like serious cinema and are brave enough to face ugly truths as they are slapped onto your face then you will appreciate this movie. It hit me hard which would have been ok on other days but not today when Krish and Ananya from 2 States were still lurking in my mind. Don't take kids.
