The Servant's Shirt
(Naukar Ki Kameez)

by Mani KAUL

Bathed in the 1960s atmosphere which preceded the advent of free trade, this film evokes the distinctive quality of life in India that was forged through half a century of socialist experience tinged by the Soviet Union. From the Sahib, an administrative director, living with his wife in a colonial type residence, to the alcoholic head clerk making great efforts to find a servant, to Santou and his wife wading in the water falling through their holed roof, a network of hierarchical relationships between humans is designed.
