Lipstick Under My Burkha

Lipstick Under My Burkha

Tangled within a traditional, conservative society four females seek freedom from their monotonous lives as we follow them through their rebellious journey to self-fulfilment. A burkha-clad college girl aspiring to be a pop-singer with all the trimmings, a care-free and two-timing beautician seeking escape from her claustrophobic town, an oppressed housewife who is not just a baby-making machine but a well-earning saleswoman, and widower, Auntie Usha, living through fictional character Rosy, rediscovers lust through a phone romance with a handsome hunk.

The film courageously gives voice to every female who is hiding secret dreams and inner desires. The red lipstick of four feisty women, is the pivot of this story.
