अंकुर | The Seedling

Shyam Benegal India, 1974

Kamran S. Sehgal's rating of the film Ankur

As with all Indian cinema the colours are the things that draw my attention. Shabana Azmi gives a knockout performance in this gem that while not the greatest film about the Indian caste is a worthy addition to the genre.
