ANGRY INDIAN GODDESSES ***
One angry Goddess is intimidating, but seven of them?! With all the rapes and injustices going on in India against women, how could these young, liberated women not be angry? Indian director Pan Nalin of the sublime “Samsara” is back with this joyous, colorful yet socially pertinent and necessary film.
With his charming tale of these seven friends coming together in Goa to celebrate the mysterious wedding of their hostess, Nalin gives us a view of different layers of Indian society: active, modern women with viable careers, and the old traditions that weigh down their aspirations.
There is the beautiful holiday home of the bride to-be, the fun interactions of old friends, the loyal housemaid and her ancient mother with the unforgettable face, and then the tragedy that hits them…
Superb **** Very Good *** Good ** Mediocre * Miserable – no stars
