Movie Review - Angry Indian Goddesses

Movie Review Angry Indian Goddesses pardesi news 1459247760

The movie, Angry Indian Goddess portrays the dichotomy of the Indian society.

Angry Indian Goddesses is directed by Pan Nalin with Sandhya Mridul, Tannishtha Chatterjee, Sarah-Jane Dias, Anushka Manchanda, Amrit Maghera, Rajshri Deshpande and Pavleen Gujral playing lead roles with Adil Hussain. Pan Nalin gives India an unusual female buddy film that attempts to make a statement on the growing atrocities against women.

The movie revolves around the chronicles of each character's personal life and how they forget their individual problems and despairs while hanging out in Goa. This bunch of young women gets together to recall, snigger and celebrate woman's bachelor’s party before fashion photographer Freida (Sarah Jane Dias), gets married. The  Corporate slave-cum-single-mom (Sandhya Mridul), a singer going through a dry patch (Anushka Manchanda), trying-very-hard-for-a-break actress (Amrit Maghera), the unhappily married (Pavleen Gujral), and feisty activist (Tannishtha Chatterjee) are the friends whose life weaves the narrative of the film.  The tirade about how women are subjugated by society repeats itself frequently in the movie. Being billed as India's first all-out female buddy film, the movie also marks Director Nalin's début in mainstream Hindi cinema.  

It was screened in the Special Presentations section of the 2015 Toronto International Film Festival, where it finished second in the voting for the People's Choice Award. The film was recently released worldwide on November 27, 2015 to highly positive reviews. Credit is due here to the actors and the writer of the film as these conversations flow effortlessly on-screen. The movie indeed has a brave subject, which together with good acting makes it significant despite its flaws.
