Movie Info

This harrowing Indian film promotes the need for population control. It persuasively demonstrates the effects of overpopulation, overcrowding and famine on the people of India. Activity in an Indian courtroom frames the numerous sketches used to assist viewers in understanding the issues viscerally. One repeating scene has a young man, condemned to death, who comments on the population problem and its ramifications. ~ Clarke Fountain, Rovi
