GUJARATI MOVIE (ENGLISH SUBTITLES)
It "questions patriarchy while celebrating the colours and culture of Gujarat".
Praised for its presentation of patriarchy, casteism, and superstition, and performances and choreography.
One critic pointed out inaccurate representation of Kutch's local culture and the 1970s.
Summary: In 1975, a young girl named Manjhri is married off to a small village in the middle of nowhere in the Rann of Kutch. There, she joins a group of women shackled by patriarchal mandates. Their only escape from the suppression is when they go out to fetch water at a distant waterbody every morning. Other than those few hours everyday, their lives are bound by the rules made by men which they have to abide by. One day, while on their way to fetch water, they find someone in the middle of the desert and their lives are changed forever.
