OTTAAL

Young Adults, Drama 1h 21m 2015

In the paradisiacal countryside of Southern India, orphaned eight-year-old Kuttappayi is being brought up by his kindly grandfather. Together they raise flocks of ducks in vast flooded fields, go fishing, tell each other stories and generally fool around. Kuttappayi’s life appears easy and sheltered—until the old man falls ill and his future is thrown into uncertainty. Loosely based on Chekhov’s short story Vanka, Ottaal tells the timeless tale of a boy who wishes only for the chance to go to school, but whose dreams are dashed by poverty and lack of equal opportunity—a fate shared by millions of children across the world.
