Location: Redstone Theater
Dir. Vetri Maaran. 2015. 116 mins. DCP. With Dinesh Ravi, Samuthira Kani, Murugadas Periyasamy, Raj Pradeesh. In Tamil with English subtitles. India’s official Academy Award submission, Visaranai is a hard-hitting socio-political thriller based on a true story about four innocent young men who travel from Tamil Nadu to the neighboring state of Andhra Pradesh looking for work. When they are accused of robbing a local bigwig’s house, the four are caught in a tangle of police brutality and corruption. “A powerful, chilling drama about how the system toys with us,” wrote The Hindu. Visaranai premiered in the Orrizonti section at the Venice International Festival last year and won the Amnesty International Italia Award for focusing on human rights violations.
