In the new female buddy film “Angry Indian Goddesses,” women are standing up for their artistic rights in the Indian film industry. The movie marks writer-director Pan Nalin’s mainstream Hindi cinema debut. After being screened in the Special Presentations section of the 2015 Toronto International Film Festival and finishing second in the voting for the People’s Choice Award, the drama will be released in over 40 countries in 2016.
The official synopsis reads: “In the scenic beachside state of Goa, Frieda (Sarah Jane Dias), a strong-willed and celebrated photographer gathers her closest friends on the eve of her nuptials. The diverse (and often hilarious) group is a snapshot of modern Indian society: Su (Sandhya Mridul), a businesswoman and mother; the engaging Nargis; Jo (Amrit Maghera), an aspiring Bollywood actress; Pammy (Pavleen Gujral), a housewife; Mad (Anushka Manchanda), a singer-songwriter; and the house servant, Lakshmi (Rajshri Deshpande). Everything’s set for a night of celebration. There’s only one issue: Frieda won’t say who her betrothed is.”
