19(1)(a): Where the political takes personal on a bumpy ride

19(1)(a), written and directed by debutant Indhu V.S, is now streaming on Disney+ Hotstar. The movie takes us through the life of a young woman whose life changes after she is entrusted with a Tamil Ambedkarite revolutionary writer’s unpublished manuscript.

Simple and aching: ’96

With no spoilers given, let me assert that the film will leave you hanging, incomplete and hoping for something more to come, maybe even a cliché ending we have seen and is ever seen to.
