Fandry ist the debut feature film of director Nagraj Manjule:
“Fandry, is therefore and indeed no wonder, my own experience of life. Having born in a nomadic tribal caste and being the first in my family to acquire education, I got acquainted with notions and concepts of human independence, social equality and human rights.
Just Iike ‘Fandry’ is a soft love story blossoming in the heart of a tender-aged boy called iabya over the background of the unsympathetic society equally potent a story it is of a spirited and awe-inspiring chase made by a brave youth to win self-pride, material life and pleasures It offers, for making the dreams come true even while overcoming the heinous inferiority complex emanating from the feeling of being nothing less than a mucky pig in the wicked castes system of Indian society.”
