     16Gopalakrishnan’s exploration of the ‘Hegelian’ 
     17master-slave dialectic in a South Karnataka 
     18setting. Bhaskar Pattelar (Mammootty) is the 
     19aggressive, tyrannical, hard-drinking village 
     20landlord whose will is law, while Thomma 
     21(Gopakumar), a Christian migrant labourer 
     22from Kerala, is his timid and fearful but always 
     23loyal slave. Thomma resents the master’s 
     24control, but is always there when required, 
     25whether it is to help murder Bhaskar Pattelar’s 
     26kindly wife, Saroja, or to make his own wife, 
     27Omana, sexually available to the master or to 
     28dynamite the sacred fish in the temple pond, 
     29the temple being the only effective site of 
     30resistance to the landlord’s tyranny. Thomma is 
     31unwilling to join the other villagers’ plot to kill 
     32the tyrant, but exults in freedom when Pattelar 
     33is finally shot dead. The author of the original 
     34story objected to the film’s interpretation of his 
     35work, renewing an old controversy about filmic 
     36adaptations of literary works.
