Storyline

Tired of men who promise protection but actually become predators themselves, two Mumbai based sex workers decide to kick men out of the business and start a cooperative that is run by women and for women, and thus run the sex trade themselves. How do they do things differently? How far are they allowed to reach and prosper before they become too serious a threat for patriarchy?

A must watch for feminists
15 August 2019 | by bhoomimistrySee all my reviews

It is empowering to see women take charge on screen, and even more empowering to see that multiple aspects of each of their personalities are respected and portrayed beautifully. Unlike any movie that revolves around sex workers, and does not patronise women. Great plot and acting. Exceptional attention to details.
