EAST COAST PREMIERE

Angry Indian Goddesses

PAN NALIN
India, 2015
104 minutes, Color
Official website

Writer-director Pan Nalin's Angry Indian Goddesses follows a half-dozen college friends as they compare notes on contemporary issues of concern to the modern Indian woman. Disgusted at her treatment during a shoot, photographer Frieda (Sarah-Jane Dias) returns to her family's seaside house in the picturesque southwestern state of Goa. There, she summons a gaggle of her besties to celebrate her impending nuptials—though she refuses to reveal the identity of the groom. Nevertheless, the occasion marks an exuberant soapbox for a broad range of topics, the hashing out of which brings both catharsis and crisis. Describing itself as "India's first female buddy comedy" and coming off as a South Asian take on Bridesmaids, the new film from Nalin, whose 2001 film Samsara established him on the international festival circuit, won the People's Choice award at last year's Rome Film Festival and is a refreshing, invigorating spin on Bollywood clichés.—Eddie Cockrell

In Hindi with English subtitles
