Saif Khan Chishty

Excellent, thoughtful analysis.

To me the politics of Pandey's disturbingly applauded first film was repulsively regressive and scarily reactionary. I have yet to watch this film (I won't) so I can't comment but if the trailers are any indication it is a part of the same moral conundrums of which inherently all images are. It's like The Hunger Games pretending to make us feel sorry for the state of reality TV (though, I realise it's "concerns" are more than that, including fascism etc.) while titillating us with the same action which the evil society is watching and enjoying and because of which it is evil. Now, if there was some way to criticize THAT point within the film, then I would indulge in "guilty pleasures" more often.
