Dozakh..should have been in search of a decent sound editor and better production design rather than Heaven; I would say.

Small town India. Smaller fry clergy. And a little kid caught in between a dour father (who is also the local muezzin) and his insistence on ritual AND the mandir et pandit next door where everything is shinier and "funner" and hey the chance to play Hanuman and having really yummy puri sabzi. Geography lessons in school are also about Birth of Ganges rather than riverine systems so yes.

You know how this is going to end.

The movie begins with a day in the life of Dour Muezzin where his routine seems a little off.

A child is missing but the story cuts and flashbacks makes us more worried whether we will ever find the plot. The boy can wait.

I feel like the Grinch Who Stole The Secular Spirit but somehow the movie fails to accomplish the give our syncretic culture a chance essence of Benares (that the film makers claimed to make).

So no on second thoughts I think I am going to go with exploitative and reductive.

And that my dear is as the good doctor put it "L'enfer, c'est les autres" Hell is Other People.

And right now they are all in this film.
