Excellent documentary on Banchhara prostitutes in Central India
4 March 2006 | by gaudadasaSee all my reviews

When I watched the movie, I felt like watching is again. While viewing it second time, it seemed like a normal movie when the fact was that, no, it's not a fiction but a real life documentary.

The initial effect lasted for several days. No doubt, the movie has made an ever lasting impression on my mind.

As the official synopsis says, it is the story of a woman who "breaks free from tradition and refuses to continue working on the road".

The efforts put by the production crew over a period of 10 years is worth an applause. But applauds are nothing, as I understood, the end of the movie clearly signified that 'there is a lot more work to be done' and the responsibility is on 'you'. Extremely motivating!
