Feature name: Rubaru Roshni
Director: Svati Chakravarty
Cast: Avantika Maken, Ranjith Singh Gill
Rubaru Roshni mainly revolves around forgiveness. While the idea seems noble, can it really be the solution?
Directed by Svati Chakravarty, the documentary traces three real-life incidents that took place in India. The first one, ‘Orphan and the Convict’ is about former President Shankar Dayal Sharma’s granddaughter Avantika Maken, whose parents were murdered by Ranjith Singh Gill & his aides when she was a child. The second one, ‘The Farmer and the Nun’ is about a nun named Rani Maria, who was murdered by a person named Sundar. And the third one, ‘The Terror and the Mom’, is about a woman named Kia Scherr who lost her husband Alan and daughter Naomi in the 2008 Mumbai terror attacks.
Out of all the stories, the first one about Avantika & Ranjith is the one that impacts you the most while the last one about Kia is the weakest. All the films have been shot well and shown objectively. But the film falters as it perhaps shows forgiveness is the best way forward. Some of things shown in the film are just very hard to digest.
We give the film 2 stars with no kinks.
