On this episode of Do I Like It, we review Photo, directed by Utsav Gonwar, which was just premiered at the Bengaluru International Film Festival. This Kannada film is pathbreaking in terms of its cinematography; the director portrays his story in terms of political consciousness and not political correctness.

The movie starts with the story of a young son, excited to visit his father in Bengaluru, but slowly morphs into the story of a father hoping to return to his village amidst the lockdown and their collective journey home.

The narrative shift is smooth and does not cause any narrative jerks. Overall, Photo is a beautiful amalgamation of several representations – whether it is gender, class or society.
