Cert: 12A Year: 2014 Length: 116 mins Language: Marathi/Gujarati
When the sledgehammer of the State decides that the nut of an irritant folk singer needs to be cracked, the legal process becomes a heavy weapon.
Court exposes the convoluted workings of the Indian judicial system and seems to have touched a nerve, with Indian censors mandating edits before approving the film for release.
A courtroom drama like no other, Court contrasts the lifestyles of the defence and the defendant, the prosecutor and the judge.
With a poise that's rare in directors making their first feature, Tamhane delivers both a deadpan satire of a rotten legal system and a nuanced portrayal of the people who inhabit it
