The celebrated documentary filmmaker dives headfirst into the Hindutva-versus-the-rest divide...

"The most important Indian title to be screened at the ongoing Toronto International Film Festival isn’t a feature from Bollywood, but a searing independent documentary by one of the most celebrated practitioners of the form.

The film dives fearlessly into the debates that hit the headlines with troubling regularity: the murders of rationalists and attacks on activists critical of government policy; the emergence of shadowy Hindutva organisations such as Sanathan Sanstha and Abhinav Bharat; hyper-nationalism; the attacks on Muslims and Dalits in the guise of cow protection; the attempts to rewrite history; the mainstreaming of radical Hindu beliefs and the attempts within the government and outside it to transform India into a Hindu state; the attacks on protesting students in universities."

Thanks for sharing. Anand Patwardhan is a top documentary director. Still remember his superb documentary ‘Ram ka Naam’.

Wouldn't an important Bollywood feature be a contradiction in terms?
