Storyline

INDIA's DAUGHTER is the story of the short life, and brutal gang rape and murder in Delhi in December 2012 of an exceptional and inspiring young woman. The rape of the 23 year old medical student by 6 men on a moving bus, and her death, sparked unprecedented protests and riots throughout India and led to the first glimmers of a change of mindset. Interwoven into the story line are the lives, values and mindsets of the rapists whom the film makers have had exclusive and unprecedented access to interview before they hang. The film examines the society and values which spawn such violent acts, and makes an optimistic and impassioned plea for change. Written by Anonymous

Filmmaker leslee udwin making making movie just for agenda and making money ?
8 March 2015 | by See all my reviews

ethically and morally its wrong. due to this movie nirbhaya real name has been revealed her identify has came out. giving rapist a platform to tell how he raped, how he enjoyed telling graphic description which can harm victims parents and such victims. thi is not journalism this is perversion. movie just show rapist view and smilar views not shown the people who oppose such views but then its just to portrayed normal Indian man as rapist. udwin also said in inerview rapist was normal man / ordinary man. what does she mean every Indian is rapist ? this is awful. when rapist in entire world has same mindset how come you show his pervert views and somehow align with normal Indian man. haha . too bad people who like this here should have some sense ? I feel so shocked how come Indian government and authority give udwin chance to interview. him in normal cloths not in JAIL cloths ?
