Critic Reviews for Bhopal: A Prayer for Rain
Filming in India, director Kumar invests the proceedings with a vividly realistic atmosphere, fully conveying the poverty-stricken conditions suffered by the town's desperate inhabitants.
Not a thriller by any means, Bhopal spends two-thirds of its running time following a few too many two-dimensional characters during the events leading up to the disaster.
Some of the portrayals are over-the-top in their villainy, and the dialogue, acting and music all tend to be melodramatic. But all of the overt heartstring-pulling doesn't add much.
Through "Bhopal," the filmmaker argues that the promise of jobs and prosperity all too often trumps environmental and safety concerns, and it leads government to ignore corporate wrongdoing.
This is crudely mounted, earnest advocacy, getting its points across at any cost.
