Devashish Makhija’s Joram is easily admired for its bravery and urgency. Manoj Bajpayee plays Dasru, a tribal man on the run with his infant daughter. The dark deities of vengeance, fate and socio-economic disenfranchisement bear down on his cross-country trek to nowhere. The film takes a long, hard look at how the phantasm of development has ravaged a land and its people. It’s most remarkable, nonetheless, for the extraordinary restraint with which Makhija approaches his material. Sound designer Dhiman Karmakar makes music out of stillness: the slow rustle of wind in the meadows, the virginal gurgling of a forest brook. As scathing and brutal as any of Makhija’s past films, Joram comes alive in its moments of poetry.
