“Lipstick Under My Burkha deserves a rousing ovation” – A Subhash K Jha Review

22 July 2017 8:16 AM, PDT

Lipstick Under My Burkha

Starring Ratna Pathak Shah , Konkona Sen Sharma, Ahana Kumra, Plobota Borthakur

Directed by Alankrita Shrivstava

An inherently murky claustrophobic air pervades this inconsistently brilliant hardhitting raunchy ‘ram’-com, very conscious of its responsibilities as post-feminist cinema on women’s powerment.

Here is a film that deserves a rousing ovation for bringing out the sexual fantasies and other unspoken yearnings of four middleclass women in a non-metropolitan milieu eking each out an exciting existence from the hard brutal raw material of her inert life.

But the film falls short of being genre-defining. Shrivastava whose earlier and only film Turning 30 only hinted at the post-feminist explosion of Lipstick Under The Burkha, takes charge with an all-knowing confidence of four women from different walks of life and belonging to separate generations.

Perhaps to offset the mess that they make of their lives, the lineup of women is a little too tidy and symmetrical. »

Featuring Kunal Kapoor, Mohit Marwah and Amit Sadh, the film revolves around the Red Fort trial of three Ina (Subhash Chandra Bose’s Indian National Army) officers for treason and conspiracy against the English throne.

Producer Gurdeep Singh Sappal was keen that the President watches the film before his term draws to a close, as a mark of respect for those heroes. He says, “It was only befitting that the first screening of the film, produced by Rajya Sabha TV, be held for the President of India. We were fortunate and grateful that the President granted our wish.”
