Deswa

OTTAWA PREMIERE OF NEW BHOJPURI FILM | TICKETS: $10

The film deals with contemporary issues affecting youths. It begins in 2005 with a student protest during the corrupt Bihari administration of Laloo Prasad Yadav, intended to free the characters played by Ajay Kumar and Deepak Singh. The film goes in a flashback of these two prisoners.

Singh is a temporary Government teacher who twice passed the written entrance examination for the Indian Police Service but was not selected for employment. Kumar is a brilliant student but from a poor family, which meant that he could not afford the INRtwo lakh bribe that was necessary in order to secure a job. He has a friend who is of a lower caste, which adds to his woes because the relationship caused friction with both his older brother and society generally. While Kumar needs money for the bribe and to pay a dowry on the marriage of his sister, his friend needs finance to start a roadside tea stall and so escape the need to continue working for his cruel employer.

The young men plans the most unusual idea and as the destiny would have, fail. Deswa is a 2 hour 10 minute film which will engage you through its picturesque Cinematography, songs by great Sonu Nigam, Shreya Ghoshal, Sharda Sinha, Bharat Sharma Vyas and edge of the seat thrilling scenes.
