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

The truth my country's governors denied and banned.
15 January 2020 | by sharmaabhishek-03806See all my reviews

India's daughter is not a film, but truth told out loud to the audience. It shows the lack of remorse the convicts had towards the heinous crime they committed. It showed how their defense lawyers, people from a higher education background, defended rapist's actions. According to them, they did right by raping her, penetrating her using an iron rod, because an Indian girl should not roam around after 9. The lawyer said that a woman is meant to impart feelings of sex in men, and she got what she asked for. The film is the truth about the mentality some people of my nation possess how they think of women as objects. Yes, there are these people here, and they come from the highest if educational backgrounds. They are literate, privileged, but they deserve nothing. Probably that's why our home minister banned it. Because he knew it would tell people the truth - their incapability of bringing the poor girl to justice. Watch India's daughter. Spread it and let the people know of what happened. Find how the police failed.
