Ram Ke Naam documents how religion was used for political and financial gain in the Babri Mosque-Ram Temple conflict and records the voices of ordinary Indians, both Hindu and Muslims, who kept their sanity and humanity in the midst of communal frenzy. "If you want to understand the issue of political manipulation and feel the human stakes at issue in a disturbingly familiar example of the chauvinist grabs for power that are staining the contemporary world, I can recommend nothing better than viewing Anand Patwardhan's acutely informative, restrainedly courageous and grimly prophetic film." - Hank Heifetz, author of "Origin of the Young God" "The screen is electric with religious fervor, masses of people swarming through the streets, gathering in rallies, or violently rioting..this is investigative cinema verite documentary at its dynamic best." - KAy Armatage, Toronto Film Festival Anand Patwardhan one of India's leading filmmakers has been making politically charged documentaries for over three decades. His films more often than not have faced the wrath of the ruling elite.
