Tingya - Movie Review

Tingya is a 2008 Marathi movie about the love of a farmer's young child and his bull Chitangya. The film focuses on the plight of small farmers. Tingya's father is in debt to the local landlord, pays high price to the seed company, finds the bullock Chitnangya injured after it falls in a leopard trap and decides to sell off the injured bullock. Tingya does everything in his power to save his beloved Chitangya.

The settings in rural Maharashtra are incredibly scenic. Tingya's friendship with his neighbour Rashida is shown beautifully. But its his love for Chitangya that breaks your heart. Till the end we are hoping that the boy saves his beloved bullock.

Lovely performances. Superb movie.
