Eeb Allay Ooo, Hindi film is streaming online, watch on Netflix with English subtitles, release date 18th February 2021.
Eeb Allay Ooo is a Hindi language film, in the social drama genre. The story is set in the backdrop of Delhi, a place notorious for monkeys running riot.
The film centres on the unenviable job of monkey chasers, who are hired to chase away monkeys from important places, so that they do not harass bureaucrats and politicians.
Most often, these monkey chasers are poor migrants, who are hired to do this very important job, but who otherwise don’t have any standing in society. The title Eeb Allay Ooo is the sound they are required to make, to scare away the monkeys. Shardul Bhardwaj plays one such migrant in Delhi, who is hired to scare away monkeys by shouting “Eeb Allay Ooo”. The movie captures the thanklessness of the job he does, at the same time highlighting the pitfalls of the job – no job security, danger of getting attacked by the monkeys, and lastly, having made fun of. The film also highlights the callousness of city folk who simply treat migrant labour as a dispensable commodity.
Eeb Allay Ooo has been making waves at festivals and now comes to streaming. Big City’s use-and-throw attitude to poor migrant workers who are treated as expendables although their services are indispensable.
