A sewage worker’s dead body is found inside a manhole in Mumbai. An ageing folk singer is arrested and accused of performing an inflammatory song, which may have incited the worker to commit suicide. The trial unfolds in a lower court, where the hopes and dreams of the city’s ordinary people play out. Forging these fates are the lawyers and judge, who are observed in their personal lives beyond the theatre of the courtroom. 
Press quotes
“An impressive debut that flays alive India’s judicial system thanks to an intelligent, superbly understated script.” VARIETY

“It’s a rich, nuanced film, more social fresco than courtroom drama, and a deserved winner both of the horizons section prize and the Luigi De Laurentiis debut film award at this year’s Venice festival.” SCREENDAILY

“Mumbai’s Chaitanya Tamhane emerges as one of the world’s most accomplished and promising film-makers under 30 with his quietly steely legal drama Court, a bluntly-titled chronicle of politically-motivated injustice.” THE HOLLYWOOD REPORTER

“A major film on the worrying state of freedom of speech in the Indian democracy.”

“No rating can do this film justice. It's unmissable.”
