KHWADA (Marathi) Takes a Look at a Nomadic Herder Community

Thanks to agyaat for sharing this — qalandar.


Excerpt: “…Khwada turns out to be an absorbing anthropological study of the nomadic community of herders known as the Dhangars. The movie follows one Dhangar family, which has traditionally earned its living raising goats. External pressures manifest themselves in the form of a crooked local politician, whose action of snatching away their goats earns the wrath of the younger son, a wrestler who is on the verge of being married.

Khwada opens across Maharashtra on October 22. The rustic Marathi spoken by the characters has necessitated subtitles, which also opens out the movie to non-Marathi audiences.”
