Eeb Allay Ooo!
Because they are treated as gods, they are given food, they are corrupted, they are… made to think that they don’t need to forage anymore. So they become bold… They start demanding. Then the gods become pests.
- Dialogue from the film Eeb Allay Ooo!
The above dialogue is from the film Eeb Allay Ooo! directed by Prateek Vats; but who does it apply to? The film is a surreal satire about a young migrant’s battles with hordes of monkeys in the heart of New Delhi as a contractual monkey repeller.
At a time when the migrant labourers in India and in many other parts of the world are struggling to make their ends meet on account of the restrictions imposed by Covid 19, lack of governmental planning and when unkind comments are made on the plight of their status, this film may be of interest to many of us.
