Angry Indian Goddesses
What happens when women get sick of fighting inequality, and instead get really, really angry? Angry Indian Goddesses is a film that pushes that question to the extreme. When a group of female friends are called to their friend's house in Goa in India, they think the biggest surprise is her announcement that she's getting married. But this is a film that is unafraid to switch up the mood drastically, what begins as a cheeky, comical buddy movie about a week-long bachelorette party, ends as something much darker.
We follow the stories of seven women as they overlap and intertwine, moving through pain, love, heartwarming friendships, career crises, and their struggles against sexism and injustice. This is an honest and frank portrayal of life for modern women in India today, in all its victories and struggles.
Angry Indian Goddesses will get under your skin not least because of the beautiful Goan setting and strong, emotional acting performances across the board. Director Pan Nalin has pulled together a rallying cry that women across the world can relate to, and puts queer women centre stage in this defiant powerhouse of a movie.
