Bhopal: A Prayer For Rain Full Movie 720p Hd
The first half takes place at Shankars – now, years later, a fairly successful club. He puts on a final show for a business delegation from the United States Civil Rights Commission in the hope of persuading them to de-list Bhopals band from the rupees earmarked for the companys contribution to the poll tax. He is also determined to stop an unnamed bandleader from evicting him from the club where he has run the music for twenty-five years. This band leader is ambitious enough to double Shankar s band for other, richer, Americans, and Shankar is equally certain that he doesnt want to hand his band over to America. Later in the night, however, the man who convinced the civil rights commission is kidnapped and Shankar changes his mind. He is confronted by a powerful gang that the business delegation will presumably be visiting the following morning, armed with the bandmembers ID cards and a list of duplicitous, unscrupulous and fairly senior figures who must sign a statement pledging not to employ the kidnapped man for ten years. This process means that the two bands, Shankars and the official band, have to have separate identities. Its an elegant solution to a common problem in Indian film, where a film, like a family, is frequently unwilling to let go of a suitable character.
While A Prayer for Rain challenges the audience to question the exploitative nature of the relationship between business and government, it also shows that even democracies like India can be deeply corrupted. It is not comforting to find out that there is no avenue for justice in the place where a world-changing incident took place, and where a much larger tragedy is unfolding daily. At its core, however, Bhopal: A Prayer for Rain is an unusual and poetic work, and makes for a sobering viewing. By using his foreboding images of a ruined world as raw material, Kumar creates a meditation in the aftermath of the disaster.
