Rudrangi (2023)

The post-colonial powers in India decided to take advantage of the situation and continue to oppress the downtrodden.

The visuals in this one! The sensuality. The bad-assary. The slow-mo and battles... it goes beyond what I was expecting. And the story's an epic one - of lordship and defiance - of slavery and love - of sacrifice and power. Though Mallesh sometimes seems so strong, and sometimes... not so much.

There are cultural elements here that feel a bit too foreign for me. Like there's a whole lot of talk on the topic of drinking someone else's pee - as if the ultimate form of submission and shame. But the fights are still magnificent, and the romances maybe even more so, and in the end it really makes well do with the saying that 'absolute power corrupts absolutely'. From one tyrant to another...

Wonder if it's a pike at the social hierarchies of India too. They still have 'em, after all.

Great watch anyway. Visually amazing. Script-wise? A little messy. A little all over the place. A little baffling - though I don't know if that's a fault of the story or of the subtitles, or my outsider reference frame.

It might be both.
