BENTA Featured

2016 06 Jul

Benta is the name of the key character as well as the title for the film. The movie is a screen adaptation of well-loved stage play going by the same title.

Benta grew up as a normal child until, as fate would have it, her parents perished in a road accident. At the time, Benta, the first born of her family, was only 15. The presence of the
extended family during the funeral of her folks might have given this newly orphaned child a ray of hope. A hope that was short-lived.

We then see Benta and her siblings get kicked out of their home by a ruthless landlord and like many other orphans, they head for the slums.

Now at 17 years, Benta is out of school and needs to keep providing for her siblings. She has three choices – to look for a husband, become a prostitute or get a job that has some decency to it. Well, this is how she ends up at the Fulani's, as a maid.

The Fulani home is a typical upper middleclass home, where we meet another kind of teenagers. Dedan and Sheeana Fulani deliver to the plot teenagers in a "normal" environment – also known as spoilt brats.

The question remains – will Benta survive her situation? The answer lies in the film.

Nominated and won "Best Actress" in the Kalasha Awards 2009.
