This is a must watch Documentary, 6 November 2014
Author: pace-26-206457

So, I had my doubts about the content of this film. Nether the less I watched it. The movie stimulated many thoughts and emotions, it provided a very interesting look at the options and choices of the women of India.

More than this though it displayed the human condition from extreme view points. The film re-enforcing the fact that as human being we tend to place judgements on situations and people without ever truly knowing the environmental conditions creating them.

I highly recommend this film, what ever part of society one comes from this film has something to offer in opening the mind.
