there cant be a more powerful movie about the choices you make between ideals and survival
Un-Freedom could also be titled Un-intelligible. This mish mash of social consciousness tries to address Islamic terrorism and coming out as a lesbian in India in the same film by toggling back and forth in and out of each story arc. You might be wondering why? Director Kumar outsmarted himself in trying to tell two parrellel stories, one set in New Delhi where a proud, politically connected father watches as his only daughter struggles with her sexuality and refuses to go through with her iimpending arranged marriage. Her father is humiliated and will stop at nothing to stop her, but he should know it's not possible to stop or alter hard wired sexual identity. Meanwhile in NYC a Islamic terrorist arrives from Pakistan to expose a moderate Muslim college professor. Instead the story devolves into torture and graphic, gratuitious bloody violence (including crucifying an innocent student of the professor (who was taken in a carjacking) by hammering phillips screw drivers into his wrists-yuk. Equally gratuitious is wanton female full frontal nudity in exploring the "independent spirit" of the daughters modern artist bisexual, promiscious lover and wife to be. This film is a messy, mottled brew of self-important cinema indulgence by this director. It was just released two days ago, so that might explain why I watched the film with just two others on a Sunday afternoon. Way too much overcooked curry for me.
Awaiting for this movie
trailer is amazing waiting for release .
Really looking forward to watch this one...releasing on 29th may 2015 in U.S.A. here's the link of the Unfreedom blog http://unfreedommovie.com/blog/
Brutal, feel-bad film that lacks an important message or teaching moment to justify its negativity.
