Angry Indian Goddesses

"The ensemble is strong, the energy is high [in] Indian feminist buddy picture, 'Angry Indian Goddesses,' inspired by the raucous, genre-blending of Bollywood itself." - Globe & Mail

“Incidents related to violence and discrimination against women in India continue to generate news headlines. Angry Indian Goddesses constitutes veteran indie filmmaker Pan Nalin’s focused response — an indictment of chauvinistic attitudes and behavior that doesn’t need cultural translation to convey its outraged perspective. Described as “India’s first female buddy-movie,” Nalin’s feature was an award-winner at both the 2015 Toronto and Rome film festivals.

“Nalin signals his agenda from the outset, depicting his ensemble of female protagonists in a variety of situations that demonstrate their second-class social status. Shifting gears to the picturesque southwest coastal enclave of Goa, he follows commercial photographer Frieda who’s gathering five women friends at her family home.

“Setting an agenda that emphasizes respect for women’s rights induces a degree of moralizing that inevitably shapes the narrative. An emphasis on the women’s reactions to a variety of discriminatory situations starts to resemble a checklist approach, ticking off situations that cover career challenges, marriage dilemmas and personal relationships.” - The Hollywood Reporter
