Arundhati Roy, Man Booker Prize winner, on 'Placebo':

"Placebo is an important, deeply moving, stunningly made film. It's
omissions, particularly on the question of caste and gender, are egregious and some might even say unpardonable. And yet the insight it offers into what students in this country are going through—even the brightest, luckiest ones—is searing. Be provoked by it, quarrel with it, love it, hate it. But see it. I am so glad that I did."
