    SUMMARY Amitav Ghosh can be seen as the flag bearer of the fearlessness and freedom that the contemporary Indian writer in English embodies. Although Salman Rushdie is the pioneer who put the post colonial scene on the literary map, yet Amitav Ghosh has become one of the central figures to emerge after the success of Rushdie`s Midnight`s Children. Yet when compared to Rushdie, published criticism on Ghosh is not very substantial. Most of the critical essays are limited to his more popular...

The process of othering, i.e. the creation of a certain sense of "us" and "them" has inevitably been created between nations and people due to the creation of boundaries or ‘Shadow Lines’ as Ghosh puts it.

Low-key lighting, dramatic shadow patterning, and camera angles are all expertly used to foreshadow and portray the emotions and psyche of the characters.

The sense of duality and contradiction in the film demonstrates how darkness can take...
