Eeb Allay Ooo!

India 2019 Fiction cor 97 min.

Anjani is one of the countless migrants moving to India’s expanding cities. He lives with his heavily pregnant sister and her husband in a shack in New Delhi. His brother-in-law has arranged a job for him as a professional monkey repeller. Ever since the keeping of langur monkeys —the natural enemies of rhesus monkeys— has been prohibited, humans have taken on the tricky job of protecting tourists and preventing the cheeky rhesus monkeys from invading government buildings. But many Indians worship the monkeys as incarnations of the god Hanuman and reverently feed them, which only serves to make the animals even bolder. Anjani is afraid of the monkeys. On one particular feast day, the situation escalates and he resorts to unusual measures.
