SPOILERS ALERT



Interestingly, the short film not only shows the eve-teasers that roam around on streets but also underlines the subtle partriarchal attitude your own family members have. Anurag's film tells women how and why they do not need a man to protect them from assault.



A woman is seen cooking food and preparing tea while her husband reads aloud articles from a newspaper, warning her time and again that she should not voice any kind of protest against trouble-makers. Another shot shows a woman taking care of her mom-in-law (or may be mom) and a kid just as she gets ready for her office. Here again, the mom preaches on how she should abstain from voicing any protest against molesters.



Traversing the women’s journey from being the target of lewd comments and molestation attempts on their way to office to being the target of letching men in office, the film then portrays their protest.



In the closing shots, we see the husband preparing tea while blabbering about how it was a good step the wife took. Turning of tables, you would say!



The film is written by Nitin Bhardwaj Varun Grover has penned the lyrics.



After his wife , here’s Anurag Kashyap's voice for women, against patriarchal attitude. Thought-provoking and totally worth the 20 minutes you spend watching it!
