Amaravathi - Underbelly Of A Glittering Metropolis

Sanitation is more important than political independence”,
Just as there is no shame in being a labourer for one’s self, so also is there no shame in labouring for others

The above two quotes from Mahatma Gandhi emphasizes on the importance of cleanliness and the dignity of labour. B M Giriraj’s latest venture, Amaravathi precisely portrays our attitude towards both.

In 2012, stink of Bengaluru’s garbage reached New York and London. Common perception about it was the mismanagement of waste. But few know about the mistreatment of men, who keep our cities garbage and filth-free – garbage collectors and sanitary workers. With realistic portrayal, they find their voice in the movie.
