A Frighteningly Good Film!Reviewed bynamashi_1Vote: 9/10

Chaitanya Tamhane's 'Court' examines the nature of the Indian Judiciary System. The first-time Writer-Director delivers A Frighteningly Good Film, that hits you like a ton of bricks.

'Court' Synopsis: A sewerage worker's dead body is found inside a manhole in Mumbai. An aging folk singer is tried in court on charges of his supposed suicide. He is accused of performing an inflammatory song which might have incited the worker to commit the act. As the trial unfolds, the personal lives of the lawyers and the judge involved in the case are observed outside the court.

'Court' is about justice & injustice. The narrative makes you laugh (intentionally) & also questions your depiction of what's right or wrong. Is Freedom of Speech right? Is an accusation enough for us to keep a man behind the bars? Is it right to prolong a case, till it ages beyond imagination. Is the law fighting for what's right? Tamhane's Screenplay is shocking & hard-hitting. But, this isn't a depressing tale, its an interesting one, that keeps you engrossed. Tamhane's Direction is subtle, very life-like. The Cinematography captures the journey of its characters, with a sense of paranoia. The Performances are effective, with all the actors delivering perfectly.

'Court' has been selected as the official entry to the Oscars from India Today. And if the campaign goes right, it will give its terrific competitors a good fight.

Indian Indie on the lamentable state of the legal systemReviewed byTom DooleyVote: 6/10

The basic synopsis is that an aged folk singer and 'people's poet' is arrested mid gig by the Mumbai police. He is taken before a judge where he finds that he is charged with abetting the suicide of a sewerage worker by performing in a slum. This has been done by his suggestive lyrics – and presumably the gullibility of the audience. The film follows the course of his ordeal at the hands of the Indian legal system and of the lawyer who is doing his best to get him released.

Now this is supposed to be a satire but it also comes across as a bit Kafkaesque at times. The acting is all from unknowns and they keep the authenticity level at high by using Marathi, Gujarati, English and Hindu – which is mostly translated well. The camera work is the type where the camera frames the scene and everyone acts within that frame. It has a real feeling of realism as there is always so much going on – just as it would be in real life. The players are not them only players on the stage – just like life where we are only ever the star in our version of reality.

Now I have seen high praise for this film and a lot of criticism. The critics have bemoaned the lack of direction; but that is the point – it is meant to look amateurish as that is how the courts work. The sound levels and white sub titles have caused complaints too, but I was fine with those aspects. It was also panned for the lack of editing – and well I have to agree; there are some scenes that you can fast forward parts as lots of 'bugger al' happens. But I think that was done to emphasise the passing of time and the sheer mundanity of the clock ticking being also seen as a weapon of punishment. People being locked up and denied bail is a punishment and it is the passage of that time and it being unlived that hammers that point home. So I think we essentially are suffering for our art.

Anyway it is a compelling watch but will not be for everyone; if you want thrills, action, a love interest or some sort of noir then look elsewhere. This is slow paced in action, takes its time on all levels and has messages both obvious and subtle, but I am glad I stuck with it.

Indian 'Justice'Reviewed byrudi-16796Vote: 7/10

Court is a penetratingly realistic, documentary-like depiction of the very slow and labyrinthine proceedings of the Indian justice system, of the lives of the protagonists and about Indian society at large. There is the absurd, trumped-up charge, the woman prosecutor's crazy logic based partly on outdated, 19th century colonial laws, the biased and ignorant police, the corrupt stock-witness for the prosecution and the fearful, uneducated country woman witness for the defense. The well-intended defense lawyer tries to be reasonable in court. At home he needs to escape from his mother's archaic attitudes and his father's emotionally remote rationalisations, finding relief listening to cool jazz in the privacy of his quiet, air-conditioned car and distraction with other Western ways, such as wine, European cheeses and drinking with friends in up-market bars. He is caught in these conflicting worlds of a polarized society. The effects of pervasive poverty on the underprivileged characters is consistently ignored by plaintiff and judge. Through ignorance and lethargy pretexts are created by the system and some of the professionals to trap defendants in never-ending detentions, often for years, for political reasons. The law is an ass and is applied with a myopic view by the judge, tempered by ambition, laziness and greed, covering up in turn malpractice and sluggishness by State authorities and companies thereby maintaining a miserable stale mate. I experience moments of despondence at the slow and corrupt churning of those wheels of justice. But, there is the Gandhian resilience, patience and stubborn persistence of the accused.
