The strength of a traditional Indian woman against her society and culture.
10 December 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The movie is about how one day Damini sees her brother-in-law and his friends raping the servant-maid who works at their home. Her conscience tells her to take her brother-in-law and his friends to court, but she has her entire family, in-laws, and even her husband in her way. The story is about the strength of a traditional Indian woman against her society and her culture. The acting is fantastic. If there was one Indian movie I had to suggest the entire world to watch, it would be this movie. But this is not a movie to take young children to. There are some very forceful scenes in the movie that are too much for children.
