Kasba
(Kasba)

by Kumar SHAHANI

Kasba

Tejo runs the corrupt business owned by her father-in-law, Maniram. One of Maniram’s sons returns to his hometown to get married. As the police start to investigate the family business, Tejo begins to assert her authority with vehemence…

This magnificent and masterful film is deeply moving not only because of its generosity but also the sombreness of its haunting and deeply dramatic mood. Kumar Shahani adapted Anton Chekov’s short story, In the Ravine, with disarming ease, as if its original setting had always been India.
