Ondu Oorina Kathe

1978 127’ b&w Kannada d/s/lyr Baraguru Ramchandrappa c Sundarnath Suvarna m B.V. Karanth lp Pramila, Vimalakshi, Uma, M.V. Vasudeva Rao, M.S. Umesh, Lohiteshwara, Prasanna, Mailari Rao

Noted Kannada writer Ramchandrappa’s directorial debut is a ruralist drama about caste exploitation, showing that economic exploitation goes beyond orthodox caste divides: when in power, rich Harijans (Untouchables) exploit people as ruthlessly as their erstwhile Brahmin masters did. Sometimes construed as a reply to the relentless anti- brahminism of the Navya writers and film- makers.
