Plus Points :
Performances of three female leads
Minus Points :
There are many films which deal with women’s liberation who fought for sexual abuses facing in the society.Movie deals with the open talk parched concept of woman’s life which clutches closed to the society.The concept of the movie is close to the reality of rural India. The movie deals with issues like abuse of sex workers,child marriage,domestic violence, marital rapes that we have known for quite some time now. The erotic nature of their conversations and their ability to retain their spirit through all adversity makes this film a true blue winner.
Verdict : Must watch movie.
