Just finished watching a documentary on (broadcast on NDTV 24X7) the man whose death familiarised the term ‘whistleblower’ to the Indian public. Today is the third anniversary of Satyendra Kumar Dubey’s death.
The documentary – Satyendra Jayate – was very Doordarshanish and reminded me of diploma/degree films which half-baked students at media schools usually put together. Clichéd and uninspiring, the credits mention some Little Doc Productions. They might have been short of funding, but that’s not an excuse. Creative innovation is possible on less than half a shoestring. Satyendra deserved better. The unrecognised Satyendras deserve better.
Watch the trailer (It’s a little better than the complete documentary).
