The five-letter titled Hindi film, Kagaz, points to human emotions, the ruthless system of society and a very pertinent issue prevailing in our society. It focuses on rural life and the complications one faces in a rural life. The hero of the film unquestionably impresses the viewers immensely, though some scenes are not as much impressive. Yet, the heroine has her realistic ways of strong acting like in an art movie.
If it is a real story, it has been depicted in a very qualified way. The film reminds me of the spectacles played by late Irfan Khan in his film Billu Barber, explaining the aspects of a rustic life to his small screen viewers. The dramatic difference in the story prevails, but the movie is discreet and doesn’t bother every viewer who would not have stopped viewing the story until it is completed. More than this, I felt pretty delightful at the kidnapping scene of the child and the eagerness of children to read the article in Time weekly magazine, but the heroine’s departure for her maternal-uncle’s house is really typical.
The story is about a man in a northern Indian village who seeks a loan from a bank only to find that he’s stripped off his inherited land by his kin by declaring him legally dead. Bharat Lal, the main character of the story, then decides to fight them legally. He regain his rights and falls prey to our never-ending judicial system.
