A well-told story doesn't pretend to talk about big subjects and take a higher ground. It simply puts you amidst people and lets you watch. Axone is one such piece of cinema that does that profoundly.
It shows you how a task as simple as cooking a traditional regional food could turn out to be extremely difficult. The ordeal you have to go through to organize a bare minimum event for a loved one when you are far from your home.
It doesn't preach. It focuses on small things we all face and can relate to, like cooking, dealing with friends and neighbours. And through them, it makes a point.

So I finally watched #Axone on Netflix. Some quick thoughts from an “inbetweener”. @kaustubhdeka @AruniKashyap

PS: I may not get all of the points right. Happy to engage.
the film is supposed to be humorous but I felt as if the comedy tried to override the overwhelming burden of assimilation placed on the characters. It presents assimilation as a solution to racial discrimination. Unfortunately, there is a trade off between
being true to oneself and assimilating which can often result in a loss of identity. In my mind, no one should have that burden to be “more same than different” from the majority in any country.

The character of Bendang Longkumer is a tragic one. He is someone who has survived
