    I watched the movie Podamada Janaki. An excellent narration of the life and dedications of a kodavathi freedom fighter. The spirit to fight for a cause existed even in our women. The determination to fight meant giving up life. Well done movie, thanks to all involed in the production of this movie. I hope to see more movies like this.

    We watched Janaki today and we (kids included) really liked it. It is a very well made documentary. We found it engaging, and enjoyed the flow. Thanks to Ugha and team for memorializing Janaki's story.

    Did not know such a small tribal community had such dedicated freedom fighters.
