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

Have we learned anything from this Nirbhaya case?
1 December 2017 | by See all my reviews

Have we learned anything from this Nirbhaya case?

How far can this all go and what we have learned and what we haven't, is a different question but what this documentary illuminates across our minds that is sitting across the world is that no matter what happens should really happen in this way or not.

Have we learned anything from this Nirbhaya case or is this documentary a farce?

I think most of the Indian society will never learn and this case is just another but a bit more highlighted one, because after that a lot more occurred and ratio and intentions never fell down.

RAPE is serious issue not just for females but also of the govt. that isn't taking it seriously otherwise this would have been last in this field of crime and the death penalty should be the warning sign for rapists around.

BUT NO, NOTHING OF THAT SORT HAPPENED.

So, this BBC documentary is just another munching stuff that never compels us ask the Indian Govt. why rapes are occurring after such vicious incident and so much of shame in the world politics.
