     12The Raja Saheb, played by the noted Oriya 
     13actor Pujari, embarks on a hunting expedition 
     14in cannibal country accompanied by an 
     15anglophile businessman (Gokhale), his 
     16hysterical wife (Parihar), an Army Major (Singh) 
     17and his English wife (Kapoor). The two males 
     18are attracted to each other’s wives. The only 
     19outsider to the culture of feudal-upper class 
     20hedonism is the Raja’s adopted tribal son, who 
     21represents the land that the cultural elite set out 
     22to conquer and who is regarded by them 
     23variously as a wild sex-object, hunter and slave. 
     24The hysterical wife seduces and then claims to 
     25have been raped by the tribal, who is chained 
     26and tortured. An orgiastic feast follows as the 
     27group eat what they imagine to be the wild 
     28boar shot during the hunt. They discover the 
     29next day that the meat was the tribal’s body. 
     30This discovery is left deliberately ambiguous 
     31(unlike in the novel), allowing for several 
     32interpretations. The film is noted mainly for 
     33Bir’s stunning camerawork, enhancing the 
     34elements of fable and allegory.
