Not all the jokes hit the mark, but there’s enough silliness to spend a few hours of fun (if unremarkable) if you can get the feel of the movie.

Can we turn “serious social problems” such as caste discrimination and patriarchy into comedy? Vignesh Sivan has proven it can be done.In his delightful episode in Tamil Poetry Pava Kadaigal, he mined a black comedy out of the serious social problem of honor killings. The film’s absurd tone reflected the absurdity of people who thought nothing of killing their own children, and the only “crime” was marrying someone of a lower caste.of Qatar, Yashowardhan Mishra takes a similar approach. This isn’t strictly a black comedy, but the absurdity of the on-screen events fits perfectly with the absurdity of, say, a senior cop at a press conference who can’t remember whether the defendant was raped 17 times or 70. ing. Just say there is ambiguity,” he declares. I laughed out loud.Sometimes the best way to mirror the incompetence and injustice all around us is to let go of anger and embrace our inner clown like a man spewing out the truth. Vidushak From a Sanskrit drama.what it is Qatar that’s right.
