Lipstick is audaciously outspoken about women's sexual desires and fantasies, both visually and verbally.

Lipstick Under My Burkha is both relevant and relatable. The best part is, all four women and their stories and setups are perfectly real.

"Lipstick Under My Burkha" is not a perfect movie, but Shrivastava tries mightily to bring attention to the struggles of women in everyday India.

September 4, 2017 | Rating: 2.5/4 | Full Review…

It may not offer all the answers or some ultimate victory for its entrapped women, but it's enough to help celebrate scattered moments of joy and rebellion amidst dreams of something better.

The film is a subdued conversation starter -- let us talk about women's desires as well as their rights, let women open up about their dreams.
