What a gut wrenching but beautiful movie. Lipstick under my burkha really shows life for some women living in India and how they dream, but never get to fulfill their dreams. This movie was incredible, the actors were incredible, a very exposing and real movie. At the same time, I will say that this movie is not for children or young people.

From the LA Times:
"The rousing Indian drama "Lipstick Under My Burkha," co-written and directed by Alankrita Shrivastava, takes on the repressive traditions around gender and sexuality in that country with refreshing candor and humor. "Lipstick Under My Burkha" was initially banned in India for its honest depiction of feminine sexual fantasy. It's through fantasy, creative self-expression and career ambition that these women define who they are as individuals, outside of strict gendered norms. That independence will always be the biggest threat to patriarchy."

What I saw was stupid. Shut it off.

I disliked the characters, and could not care less about their story.
