     14Remarkable experimental debut feature in the 
     15Kodava dialect from the Coorg region. Set on 
     16the eve of Independence, the story covers the 
     17night of 13 August 1947, showing a small group 
     18of characters in the colonial tea plantation of 
     19Chengappa (Nanjundaiah) and his wife. When 
     20a British flag is replaced by an Indian one, a 
     21police raid ensues. The main story tells of the 
     22servant Ponnu (Sanju), his relationship with his 
     23employers and with the suffering Kaveri 
     24(Mamatha). The most extraordinary aspect of 
     25the film is its camerawork with extended 
     26sequence shots, often lasting for 10mins, 
     27underscoring the elegaic minimalism of 
     28performance and narrative style. The day 
     29dawns and with it independence, but the 
     30promised utopia is accompanied by the news 
     31that Kaveri has been killed by her husband.
