Parched Movie Review: Nuanced Performances, Heartfelt Storytelling Make It a Must Watch
Will Parched with its four interesting tales be able to leave an impact on the viewers?
Misogyny, marital rape and patriarchal mindset - these form the key elements of director Leena Yadav's Parched. After being screened at 24 film festivals and bagging 18 awards, the much-appreciated film - which is set in the parched rural areas of Gujarat - releases in India today.
Featuring Surveen Chawla, Radhika Apte, Tannishtha Chatterjee and Adil Hussain in key roles, the film puts forth the manner in which the society perceives a widow, a prostitute and delves deeper into the much-ignored topic of marital rape.
Will Parched with its four interesting tales be able to leave an impact on the viewers? Will Leena Yadav, who has directed Shabd and Teen Patti, be able to deliver a film which is remembered for years? Divya Pal of News18 Movies is inside the theater to get you all the answers.
