Aro Recommended Court


India 2014,
Dir. Chaitanya Tamhane
In Marathi, Gujarati, Hindi with English subtitles
Genres: Foreign Cinema, Drama / Courtroom


“Richly detailed, and its acting seems almost invisible — the performers just seem to be these people. One of the strongest debut features in years.”~Village Voice

Aroview: A strikingly confident directorial debut that exposes the antiquity of the Indian legal system through the court trial of an ageing protest singer who is accused of encouraging a manhole worker to commit suicide through one of his folk songs.

Most of the dialogue is in the Marathi language as it is set in Maharashtra and the laws are read out in English. The defence lawyer speaks Gujarati, and other dialogue is in Hindi.
