Fascinating and entertaining
19 March 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

We here at Indie Friendlie watched "Pink Saris" and really enjoyed it. Yes, it's disturbing to see the poverty in this part of India, but the resilience of the people, especially the women, is remarkable and inspiring.

What we found surprising about this film is the entertainment value in watching a group of women (one woman, actually, and her posse) call out men who've been abusing their wives and/or daughters.

These women are fearless and I definitely would not want to be on the receiving end of the verbal tsunami that gets unleashed on these men.

We highly recommend this documentary and congratulate the filmmakers for tackling a tough, seemingly impossible, subject: how women continue to be treated in India.
