Four women in Bhopal strike up double lives in this provocative comedy (the poster was a middle finger). From the rebellious student to the erotica-loving grandmother, each one risks everything to find excitement in the face of suffocating social conventions. This comedic battle cry was initially banned by the India’s censors for being overly “lady-oriented [about] their fantasy above life.” Here’s your chance to stick a finger up at that ruling.
Director Alankritha Sirivastava
