Ayr does not offer any tension-releasing catharsis, making his film efficiently disquieting in its own unassuming manner.
Proves the ideal vehicle to explore a wide variety of issues related to gender battles in contemporary Indian society, even while following many of the genre tropes that make police dramas so universally beloved.
With an intelligent, subtle script and camerawork so organically natural one doesn't immediately realize that each scene is shot in one take, the film draws on a subject much in the news and spins it into a multilayered yet low-key study...
At a time when the wounds of #MeToo are yet to be healed, Soni's indictment of how normalised patriarchy continues to smother even the most empowered women, is probably the most riskiest and bravest...
Soni, as a gritty realist portrait, feels fresh and unique - both in it's portrayal of Kalpana and Soni and its technical achievements.
Female Indian cops target male predators; cursing, violence.
Soni effectively communicates how frustrating it is to be a woman in a highly patriarchal society, even while women are speaking up in other parts of the world.
Each scene... is directed with aplomb.
Ayr doesn't allow the story to devolve into sermonizing or finger-wagging. He keeps the film on-track, and Ohlyan and Batra form its soul.
Its willingness to tackle hugely relevant subject matter, paired with an unassuming script that finds space for some darkly comic bits that filter in through everyday exchanges, and a cast that brings it to life in a grounded, believable fashion.
Soni is a beautifully shot and meticulously crafted drama which focuses on the daily struggles faced by women in India.
I'm unsure if any version of this script could have lifted the lifeless decision to shoot the film in many, separate tracking long takes, because it is so overwhelmingly distracting that it renders everything going on in the film mute.
