It is all about women's Lib. I see myself as being
a westernised woman with great traditional values. I admired
the main actress for her beliefs because she is the person
I would like to be.
The film showed how a male dominated country treats women.
The women are second class. They are non-existent. Women are
to cook, clean, have children (sons) and for their pleasure.
It does not matter if a women is raped abused or killed because,
it would have been said they deserved it.

They are fighting for their right and respect.
is new and from it we can understand that women in some places
of India are still undergoing this torture. In the film the
main actress opens the eye for women. It is important to educate
these women and make them realise that they do not have to
put up with torturous behaviour from men.
In the film women are referred to as 'Goddesses' therefore
if men abuse women then they have abused a GOD. The film also
proves that what comes around goes around meaning what evil
you do you will have to pay the consequences.
This film shows the barbaric
acts of men towards a women. It touched my heart at the end
of the film.
