‘What makes you angry?’, a filmmaker asks a woman travelling in the ‘Ladies Only’ compartments of local trains running in and out of Mumbai’s main stations. The answer to this, and many other questions posed in this documentary, are both insightful and surprising, highlighting the contemporary issues, hopes, and struggles facing women in India today. The changing light, faces, and languages reflects the frenetic non-stop Mumbai lifestyle, creating a poetic rhythm flowing through this engrossing and must-see documentary.
