Movie Info

The life of a young Indian woman is chronicled in this documentary, which begins in 2004 at the shelter where 18-year-old former child bride Selvi finds herself after fleeing an abusive marriage. In time, she learns to drive and becomes a cabbie in the city of Karnataka-the first female taxi driver in South India. Her life flowers in other areas, too: She remarries-to another driver-and becomes a mother.

Critic Reviews for Driving With Selvi

All Critics (8) | Top Critics (2)

Paloschi's tight direction and crisp pace further elevate the film, turning what most would assume to be a sob story into a triumphant chronicle that never slips into sentimentality.

Beautifully simple and simply beautiful.

The film offers the chilling statistic that some 250 million women worldwide were married before the age of 15, a third of them in India. There are many more Selvis out there with less happy narratives.

There is material enough here to refute any number of hoary old jokes and assumptions about female drivers.

One can help wondering what darker details might have been left out of the final edit, but it's an effective bit of awareness-raising.

Paloschi's film unsettles and inspires.
