JAGAT - MFFSG '17 (NC16)

Description

English Title - Brutal

Coming-of-age story about a boy growing up in a community of Tamils in Malaysia during the 1990s. The plot centers on Appoy a spirited kid who would rather watch gangster flicks & make prank calls than memorize his multiplication tables. Desperately trying to keep his son on the straight path, Appoy’s hard-working father becomes increasingly abusive as the boy is inexorably drawn to the criminal lifestyle of his uncle, a henchman for a local Malaysian gang.


Set in the early 1990’s, a critical period in Malaysian Indian history, the story subtly underlines the plight of the Malaysian Indians. Forsaken by the estate owners who had employed them for generations & systematically marginalized by the ruling government, they are forced to move to the cities & survive under harsh circumstances. Left out of the nation’s urbanization & development plans, many live as squatters & work at minimum wage jobs.
