One of the best socially relevant movies of recent times! Dealing with domestic abuse, the film does a great job of portraying Amrita's internal distress as she makes a life-changing decision about her marriage. Director Anubhav Sinha also threads stories of the other women in Amrita's life who are subject to the whims of the patriarchy, making it a well-rounded affair. If nothing else, watch for the fantastic monologue towards the end!
