Peter movie review
Love, innocence, ignorance, faith, fate and superstition, Amol Arvind Bhave’s Peter is a raw and real mirror of the society that has blind faith over rigid practices followed in the name of religion, the con of the so-called god man that results in those fake sacrifices that actually sacrifices the humanity in human for greed.
Told through an emotional bonding of a 10-year-old boy Dhanya (Prem Borhade) and a baby-goat named Peter. The movie is a comment on blind faith. Dhanya’s grandfather is worried as Dhanya’s uncle, married for 5 years has still not received the blessings of being a father. A rigid practice in Dhanya’s village is followed in the name of goat to lord sonoba to get the expected blessings. A healthy goat needs to be sacrificed and the people from the village to be treated with a feast made from that sacrificed goat meat. After a lot of efforts Dhanya’s father and his uncle manage just a baby goat. They decide to raise the baby goat and sacrifice it after 5-6 months. The baby goat becomes Dhanya’s best pal and brother. The day of sacrifice arrives and then.
Amol Arvind Bhave makes a raw and realistic movie and succeeds in sending the message. The artiste performs naturally especially Prem Borhade and the goat Peter.
The message is clear but what Amol Arvind Bhave lacks in his eye opener is those sweeping moments, humour and proper build up for important scenes. Being raw is not always real in reel.
Peter is a small movie with a big message. A probing exposure on faith and fate that should be watched for ‘god’s sake.
