Budhi, a widow in a rural hamlet in Maharashtra, India, cherishes each match and drop of oil in her one-room hovel, yet she always shares what little she has. Her best friend, a goatherd who shares tea with her, accompanies her on a shopping expedition to a nearby town after she comes by a few 1000-rupee notes at a political rally. And that is where the singularly third world misadventures begin in this parable about the contagious nature of corruption and the curse of dirty money. – (condensed summary from N.Y. Times review)
“The moving performance by Usha Naik in the lead role accentuates the deeply humanistic qualities of this film that has received awards at numerous festivals.” – Frank Scheck, Hollywood Reporter
“Deceptively simple, but building to devastating twists, 1000 RUPEE NOTE marks an impressive debut for director and editor Shrihari Sathe.” – Daniel Eagan, Film Journal International
