Manthan –the churning f1

  1. 1. A Review
  2. 2.  Shyam Benegal is a prolific Indian director and screenwriter. With his first four feature films: Ankur (1973),Nishant (1975), Manthan (1976) and Bhumika (1977) he created a new genre called alternative cinema He was awarded the Padma Shri in 1976 and the Padma Bhushan in 1991 He was also awarded the Dadasaheb Phalke award for lifetime achievement in cinema, the highest award in the field of cinema He has authored three books---The Churning, Satyajit Ray, & The Marketplace He’s the President of the Federation of film societies of India and owns the Company Sahayadri Films.
  3. 3.  The film traces the origins of the movement through its fictionalized narrative, based around rural empowerment A young veterinary surgeon, played by Girish Karnad ( a character based on then, National Dairy Development Board (NDDB) chief, the 33 year old Dr. Varghese Kurien ) who joined hands with local social worker, Tribhovandas Patel, which led to the setting up a local milk cooperative, in Anand, Gujarat. In the film, Dr. Rao, comes to a village, to set up a dairy cooperative, which upsets middlemen, who were hitherto exploiting the villagers This also challenges also the age-old feudal structure of the village Soon an uprising is sparked among the local untouchables, which leads to an economic revolution as well.
  4. 4.  Girish Karnad - Dr. Rao Kulbhushan Kharbanda - Sarpanch Smita Patil - Bindu Yashpal - Bindus Husband Naseeruddin Shah - Bhola Mohan Agashe – Deshmukh Anant Nag - Chandavarkar Amrish Puri – Mishra ji
  5. 5.  Wedge that exists between people on the basis of castes Differentiation between people on basis of wealth, and influence Prejudice that rural people tend to have towards urban people (and vice-versa) A segregated but not a united society . Exploitation of uneducated and lower caste women Exploitation of poor by the affluent---In this case exploitation of lone cattle owners by large and singular dairy farm owners.
  6. 6.  It’s all about WE not ME (Dr. Karunakar) The mantra of success (Commander Venkateshwara) It works (Mr. Sudarshan) Need of all times for success (Dr. Swamy) Where V comes before I (Prof. Kavita) Outstanding results (Prof. Vittal) Together we achieve more (Prof. Sasmita) Cooperation (Mr. Raghava)
  7. 7.  Delegating tasks--- Through Bhola, and others Leading by being between people and being a part of them Patience and ability to take losses in the short run may influence the outcome differently Team building, and development Emphasis on self and interdependence leading to better outcome. Staying calm in times of adversity
  8. 8.  Not letting go of your values Courage Co-operation and unity Self-Reliance
  9. 9.  This is the first time a film has been funded by farmers. It was funded by 500,000 farmers Manthan while it refers to the process of churning it also alludes to the social restructuring of society Projects the ability of farmers to overcome adversity and stay close in hard times thus putting across a strong social message Highlights in a precise and highly observant way the idiosyncrasy and attitudes of the then society at large, effectively.
  10. 10.  Operation Flood was a rural development programme started by Indias National Dairy Development Board (NDDB) in 1970. One of the largest of its kind, the programme objective was to create a nationwide milk grid. It resulted in making India the largest producer of milk and milk products, and hence is also called the White Revolution of India. It also helped reduce malpractices by milk traders and merchants. This revolution followed the Indian Green Revolution and supposedly helped in alleviating poverty and famine levels from their dangerous proportions in India during the era.
  11. 11.  1976: Indian submission for the Academy Award for Best Foreign Language Film 1977 National Film Award for Best Feature Film in Hindi 1977 National Film Award for Best Screenplay: Vijay Tendulkar 1977: Filmfare Award for Best Female Playback Singer: Preeti Sagar
