Parvati Synopsis The film was set in 1920s and depicts a rural village in Karnataka, where a young widow, the daughter of a village scholar who runs a local school, finds herself pregnant after being seduced by a teacher. While the girl remains unaware of the happenings within and around her, she is excommunicated by her father, who performs her funeral rites (Ghatashraddha), while she is still alive. A little boy through whose eyes the entire story is perceived goes back home, after the school is closed down following the incident. This movie also shows a clear picture of caste division amongst Brahmins and Shudras (untouchables) in quite a few scenes – when the little boy tries to touch the shudra slave he actually runs away saying it is not possible., and before the climax scene where the Shudra slave says to the main priest “He had saved his daughter (who got pregnant being a widow) even from the snakes, but could not save her from a Brahmin.”     Awards  1977 – National Film Award for Best Feature Film  1977 – National Film Award for Best Music Direction – B.V. Karanth  1977 – National Film Award for Best Child Artist – Ajith Kumar H.M.   Bashu The Little stranger Directed:- Behram Bezai Starring :- Sushan Taslimi Cinematigraphy:- Firooz Malekzadeh Released:- 1989 Language: Persian Running Time :-120 minutes   synopsis This touching, thought-provoking Iranian children’s drama has a simple story, but complex undertones as it is simultaneously a quiet plea for peace and tolerance, an entertaining story and a sly, metaphorical criticism of Muslem fundamentalist thinking. Iranian government sponsored the film, they banned it for the above reasons.   Bashu is a 10-year-old boy living in war-torn southern Iran. During an Iraqi attack on his village his mother ends up burning to death when her veil catches fire, and his father disappears through a hole that suddenly appears beneath his prayer rug at home. Bashu witnesses the deaths and is so terrified that he leaves his ravaged village and sneaks aboard a northbound truck. Exhausted, he falls asleep and doesn’t wake until the truck stops briefly in a northern village. The boy is astounded by the cool green of the place, the lad heads for the forest as the truck rushes off. Bashu wanders about and ends up asleep in a lean-to beside a rice paddy that belongs to a young mother, Nai, who raises her two kids alone while her husband is off looking for employment. At first she tries to get him off her property but then changes her mind and quietly (northern Iranians speak a different language from their southern counterparts, but both share the same writing system) begins to help him. She thinks the help is only temporary and that his parents will soon arrive to get him. He thinks she is adopting him. Bashu proves to be a good, helpful boy. Unfortunately, the townsfolk dislike him because he looks and acts so differently. Good Nai tries to protect him from their prejudice, but it is difficult. Her husband compounds matters when, in a letter, he insists that Bashu leave. Meanwhile the boy is beaten up by the local children and at this point his future is uncertain. Fortunately, Nai’s husband returns and decides that Bashu does indeed have a place in their little family.  ]]>
