Mitti , Back to the Roots : Movie Review by a Farmer Champion
Yesterday (Nov 20, 2017), I had the good fortune of watching the special screening of the social impact movie “Mitti-Back to the roots”.
It was 2 hrs. power packed performance by the movie crew and all the audience glued to their seat completely engrossed with the characters and the subject of Agrarian crisis and farmer suicides. The movie starts with a Farmer succumbing to cardiac arrest seeing the crops fails and how the girl of this deceased farmer went on to become an Agriculture Scientist and fight against all odds to stop the corrupt practices of spreading the GM Seeds, pesticides and fertilizers which kills both Farmers and the fertile lands of our Nation. The movie also narrates to a greater depth the issues faced by Farmers in our nation today and what forces them to commit suicide . How badly they were treated by middlemen, government authorities , last but not the least we the consumers and people of this country have very little empathy for their suffering. Movie also gives a solution to the Farming challenges which is explained in great details with lot of research and practical solutions for the farmers to implement.
Great Effort by the Movie Team, Center for Sustainable Agriculture for making “ Mitti” Possible. Every single department of the movie is great starting from Camera and Graphics, Background BGM & Music, Real farm locations and can’t believe most of the people who acted in this movie are first timers and they lived their roles. Definitely one person whom I want to share my special appreciation is Bahubali fame Rayala Harischandra garu, he lived his role in the movie.
Mitti-Back to the roots will definitely be a milestone social impact movie, The Journey has just began and I look forward to a greater success of this movie.
2 pillars of this movie Anshul Sinha and Ramanjaneyulu GV deserves all the support from us to make this happen.
