REVIEW FOR THE ORATOR - AN UZBEK FILM BY YUSUP RAZYKOV
Business is so good for Iskander that he gets himself a 3rd wife. Yes, those do not seem to be the traits of a successful businessman. He however pays the price in an unlikely way when Uzbekistan then sees a revolt.
The Hyderabad Film Club, in collaboration with the Federation Of Film Societies Of India, Mumbai, is organising a 3-day Festival Of Films From Central Asia, from 11th to 13th May, at Sarathi Studios in Ameerpet. Today, the second day, an Uzbek movie called The Orator (Voiz), is the second movie to be screened.
The film is directed by Yusup Razykov, and is about Iskander, a successful businessman. Business is so good in Iskander's little haulage that he can afford to get himself a third wife. But even far-off Uzbekistan is beginning to show signs of an imminent revolution.
An emancipated commissar arrives; she orders Iskander to part from his three wives, and the youngest is bundled off to Moscow to study. The many contradictions of the revolution make it impossible for Iskander to retain either his family or his conscience.
