“Kadamban”… An eco-adventure tale that’s not entirely unwatchable

Spoilers ahead…

Read the full review on Film Companion, here:

Avatar meets Lagaan in the Ragava-directed Kadamban (Protector). From the former, we get the story of an indigenous people – tribals from the village of Kadambavanam, high in the hills – being preyed on by greedy corporate-capitalists. (The villain is in the cement business. There’s limestone in those hills he wants.) And from Lagaan, we get the ragtag bunch of Davids standing up to Goliath. The result is long and a bit of a mishmash, but not entirely unwatchable.
