paradesi-movie-poster from india everydayThe thread of the story is simple yet hard and merciless. Far from the usual Kollywood clichés, Paradesi draws its inspiration from real facts described in the book 'Red Tea' written by Paul Harris Daniel in 1969. The book relates about the author's encounters with turned-slaves workers in Madras state tea plantations during the British Colonies. As you have probably understood, this is a drama not a comedy, so not for the faint-hearted.
