Jesus isn’t someone we don’t know” says one of the leads in an amusing retort. Somehow that particular dialogue unravelled the whole film to me. Kumbalangi nights is a retelling of the return of the prodigal sons with a unique twist. Unlike the original parable where the son returns to the father. Here the redemption happens through ordinary women who embrace the men as they are. There are no judgements, demands or expectations.

The film effortlessly shuts out the society’s call to be an ideal man. A man who is tough and can keep all the emotions in check. But Kumbalangi doesn’t want that. The men in Kumbalangi laugh , cry and even fall at a women’s feet to express remorse. Being perfect all the time isn’t always the right thing. I felt happy when this was addressed in so many ways throughout the film. There’s also a wonderful ode to the role of strangers who later become an indispensable part of our lives. They open up our lives in ways we have never known. It is a film without heroes. It is a film where women are the dark knights and it follows the glorious rule of keeping things simple. A must watch
