'A Good Man'

Clara's elders refuse to give her hand in marriage to Thomas for he doesn’t hold a Government job. Or maybe, they think he is a mismatch. Yet, Thomas and Clara want to come together in marriage. Traditional barriers like language, caste and other pose as further impediments to them. On the other hand, a disharmonious societal environment growing in contemporary India seems to restrict the space for Thomas.

Director Statement

A new fervor to arrive at a 'new and developed' India through economic globalization seems to have cajoled a cultural and political consciousness to emerge. The one that dubs itself as
'mainstream' seems passionately opportunist in consolidating itself in the 'new' India as 'the true Indian'. While straining the diverse demographic fabric, it willfully ignores its own society that has been historically struggling to overcome its much debated social order. This has put the 'other' in an awkward and artificial identity crisis, where an individual often succumbs to pressure to prove himself decent enough an Indian.
