“A MASTERPIECE! ONE OF THE BEST FILMS OF THE YEAR!” — ROGEREBERT.COM

“DEVASTATING!” — Stephen Holden, New York Times

COURT
A film by Chaitanya Tamhane

WINNER OF 23 INTERNATIONAL AWARDS!

A sewage worker’s dead body is found inside a manhole in Mumbai. An ageing folk singer is arrested and accused of performing an inflammatory song, which may have incited the worker to commit suicide. The trial unfolds in a lower court, where the hopes and dreams of the city’s ordinary people play out. Forging these fates are the lawyers and judge, who are observed in their personal lives beyond the theatre of the courtroom.

COURT explores what it means to be part of an invisible collective where individuals are constantly acting upon the alienating triggers of caste and class politics, patriarchy, and feudalism.

Variety says “There are courtroom dramas, and then there’s COURT, Chaitanya Tamhane’s impressive debut, which flays alive India’s justice system while commenting on class, education and access to power.”
