     13Kasaravalli’s multiple-point-of-view melodrama 
     14tells the story of Tabara (Charuhasan), a lowranking 
     15worker in a municipal office who 
     16espouses colonial views despite his obvious 
     17pride in his job in a post-Independence 
     18government. Tabara gets into financial trouble 
     19when his honesty causes enmity among the 
     20coffee planters, and his pension is held up 
     21because he has not remitted some taxes that he 
     22was supposed to have collected. His wife falls 
     23ill and his ‘case’ becomes a mere file number in 
     24a bureaucratic office. The film is narrated from 
     25different points of view: the colonial point of 
     26view, the bureaucratic one, the view of those 
     27who believe Tabara to be mentally deranged 
     28and, mainly, the view of the orphan Babu 
     29through whose eyes the steel and concrete 
     30urban future is presented. Although primarily 
     31told in a realist idiom, at times (e.g. the shots of 
     32Bangalore and in the municipal office) the 
     33camerawork anticipates the surrealism of the 
     34sequel, Mane/Ek Ghar (1989).
