As most of the southern states are looking at a disastrous drought and cruel summer, the situation in Tamil Nadu is at its pathetic best and the water-crisis that we are looking at – we only have human greed to blame!
At such a crucial juncture, K. Balachander’s brilliant movie – “Thaneer Thaneer” – “Water Water” seems to be the perfect post. The movie shows the efforts of a village handling water scarcity and the people battling against corrupt politicians who seek to politicise the issue. Saritha gave a brilliant performance and the movie based on a play by Komal Swaminathan is ranked among the 100 best movies of Indian Cinema. The movie released in 1981 to critical acclaim and won numerous awards.
