Review lacks understanding

Letter to the editor

To the Editor:

I work for The Deccan Herald, a national daily in India. I am happy to know that “Swaraaj: The Little Republic” is getting good response worldwide but I could not agree with the intro of the Variety review that it’s an “old fashioned workers’ rights agitprop drama” shows that the reviewer has little idea of the ground situation in India, and did not try to find out also.
