Dubbed India’s answer to Bridesmaids, this female buddy movie from acclaimed director Pan Nalin (Samsara) presents a refreshingly frank portrait of women in India today.

Ahead of Frieda’s pending nuptials, a group of her closest friends gather to catch up on lost time at her beachside home in Goa. The diverse bunch includes a singer, photographer, actress, activist, a trophy wife and a businesswoman. Their conversation flows freely and jubilantly, leading to revealing and often hilarious discussions that span everything from sex to gender politics to the handsome guy next door. That is, until an incident threatens to break their newly formed bond. An audience favourite at the 2015 Toronto International Film Festival, Angry Indian Goddesses is a riotous, genre-bending gem that explores the pressing issues of gender and sexism in contemporary Indian society.

For [Pan Nalin], the word ‘goddesses’ aptly describes the cast, who were inundated with interview requests (Variety and The Hollywood Reporter carried big stories on the film) after screenings at Toronto and Rome.

They can be feminine and sexy, and yet, at the same time, take on a ferocious stance to bring about positive change, like Kaali or Durga [Hindu goddesses],’ he says. – Suprateek Chatterjee, The Huffington Post India

The cast are a talented and spirited bunch, enjoying the opportunity to let loose with grievances while revelling in the togetherness of female-centric safety. – Jay Weissberg, Variety Screens with Spice Sisters
