Diksha (Collector's Edition) ((Collector's Edition)) (Movie, DVD) Price: Rs.199

Acharya Udupa is a vedic scholar running a residential school - a gurukul. An austere man demanding rigorous discipline from the novices under training, he accepts the latest disciple, Nanni, with the utmost reluctance. Nanni's training begins at two levels, the formal one with the Acharya, informal one with a couple of fellow novices. Also living with Udupa is Yamuna, his young daughter, a widow, whose life has a secret side to it. She is in love with the local schoolmaster a forbidden, abhorrent idea for the Brahmin society. One night, during the Acharya's absence from the village, Yamuna has an intimate meeting with the schoolmaster. She becomes pregnant and a target for the orthodox society.

Poignant yet Strong

The story is set in a village resembling the present day district of North Canara. It revolves around the strict Brahminical order of the village and how it affects the characters- The Udupi Pandit, his widowed daughter, the students of the gurukul, the shudra and various others. The film explores theme of salvation, renunciation and religious bigotry.

Oddly appropriate.

Even though this film was made 21 years ago, it is oddly appropriate for our times. Especially when Amir Khan's "Satyamev Jayate" has raised the issue of foeticide in the public consciousness. Even though the main issue is of Brahmanical obduracy and the heaping of judgement on women, foeticide is also relevant. Good strong acting and direction give the film a depth and cause that might have been lost.
