The documentary also provides a behind the scene glimpse at the growing Indian Muslim women’s movement as it navigates between orthodox Muslim leadership and a polarized political environment in India.”
“The entire process leaves no space for a woman’s agency nor does it establish any rights for her. Frustrated with lack of initiative from the government or religious leaders to stop this; Muslim women in India organize and start a movement to reclaim their religious and constitutional rights.”
The documentary has received awards in the Mumbai International film festival, Reelworld film festival.
