Movie- Rudaali

Picking one more gem from MUBI, I watched Rudaali. 


This movie is based on the short story written by Maha Shweta Devi. I remember reading her Why Why girl story. 

Rudaali is about a widow who never shed a tear despite tragic(orphan, alcoholic husband, widow) life gets to meet a mourner who is called to a village to mourn for soon-to-die zamindar. The mourner shares her tip and trick to mourn and encourages her to become a Rudaali(mourner). 

Enjoyed watching Marwari backdrop movie after a long time. The language, dialect and the attire. There are a lot of stories from Rajasthan. Hope these stories come onto the big screen soon. Rudaali music director, Bhupen Hazarika gave a memorable background score. I heard "Dil hoom hoom" a alot of time but, never knew that the song is from this movie. A good watch.
