MAMI Review: Kanasemba Kudureyaneri (Riding the stallion of a dream)
A simple, honest and brilliant film by Girish Kasarvalli

A brilliant film, that deals with the life of a terribly poor couple, Hiriyanna and Rudri. While Rudri works at a farm, Hiriyanna is a professional grave digger and waits for someone in the village to die, so that he gets to do some work.

Hiriyanna and Rudri might be very poor but they seem happy and content in each other’s company. The twist in the tale comes when Hiriyanna dreams of someone being dead in the film. Hiriyanna’s belief in his dream is so strong that he is sure that the elderly, comatose patriarch is dead. And Rudri dreams of Guru siddha visiting their home. (Siddha is a community which the villagers revere and believe that a visit from one of the members of the community brings good luck to the village)

Hiriyanna is shattered when he is made to believe that his dream has not come true. A touching tale of faith and belief and heart-breaks and mainly dealing with the class struggle.

It is not a surprise that this film has won two National Awards this year. Director Girish Kasarvalli won the best Kannada Movie award in the regional language film section and another award for the best screenplay. He shares the award for the screenplay with Gopal Krishna Pai.

Kanasemba Kudureyaneri is an honest, gem of a film, a pure delight to watch.
