Things get a little hazy around the topic of dignity. In most, if not all, cultures, a man's dignity is a measure of his worth. But how far must he go to protect his dignity? Must he choose his dignity over the well-being of his loved ones?
The aforementioned idea is what forms the backbone for the film Uppena. Written and directed by Buchi Babu Sana, Uppena explores the lengths to which Raayanam (Vijay Sethupathi) will go to uphold his dignity, including trampling his own daughter's love life and snatching her lover's manhood.
