'Vanaja' at Varsity

Vanaja is not a happy film. Bad things happen to its main character, a 15-year-old girl whose father is an alcoholic fisherman, whose village is desperately poor, and whose virginity is executed by a wealthy rapist. If the movie is mean when it comes to her life, it is generous when it comes to her one passion: dancing to traditional Indian music, dancing in rich robes and jewels, dancing with the gods. (Varsity, 4329 University Way NE, 781-5755. For more info see Movie Times.)

This was a very interesting movie.

But first, a warning.

It is NOT a Bollywood flick.

At all.
