And, of course, brutal violence, portrayed with scrupulous attention to the specifics. Paradesi, like Schindler’s List, is the depiction of the systematic brutalisation of a section of innocent people, but the Hollywood film showcased these sufferings through the doings of its hero, while this film has no use for a redeemer – and we are left with nothing but the suffering, no parallel stories, no subplots, nothing.
