There's no end to rules in a girls life. Don't sing, don't dance, you'll shame us. Don't walk like that, people will stare. Keep your eyes down, what will people say? Don't breathe, your heaving chest will attract attention! Don't wear lipstick, you'll have an affair! Don't wear jeans, you'll create a scandal! I want to ask the authorities, what exactly will happen? Why does our freedom scare you so?

Lipstick Under My Burkha is a rather over rated film. It is watchable and reasonably interesting though not extraordinarily so.
It appears that this movie got a great deal of extra publicity only because it was banned initially. Why it was banned is anyone's guess for there is absolutely nothing in it to warrant a censure let alone a ban. Anyway, all publicity in this business is good so to that extent the ban gave LUMB a better 'must watch' factor!
The plot is about 4 women, their lives, their feelings. It is somewhat stretched, somewhat disjointed and somewhat connected. The acting was good, the cinematography good, the sets realistic but something was missing.
LUMB is watchable but it is certainly not a brilliant film by any stretch of the imagination.
