I highly recommend this film for the KIDS FIRST! Film Festivals. The appealing thing about this film is seeing a different culture. I always love to learn about new cultures and different types of people. The unappealing thing is that it is in a different language, and, even though there are subtitles, it is tiring reading them because they go so fast. This did not hinder the film. It flows well, is handled well and is quite watchable. At some parts though, it was hard for me to understand what was going on, even with the subtitles. There is a lot of drama and comedy, which was really interesting to watch. The camerawork is amazing. The costumes look great. The acting is great. The overall production of the film is well done. I recommend it for ages 10 to 18. Reviewed by Jolleen M., KIDS FIRST! Film Critic.
The movie is named after the "Jewel beetle" - at the ripe age, the beetle's wings are cut and the wings are used to make ornaments and jewels while the beetle is let to die. Indian culture (which has been evolving and changing in urban areas but hasn't changed much in the rural segment) gets girl kids of 13-15 years married off depriving them of the opportunity to do things on their own, get educated and contribute to the society.
