SYNOPSIS

A vivid courtroom drama, Pink centres on the issue of consent and the double standards applied to men and women’s right to inhabit public spaces in the wake of sexual assault allegations. Megastar Amitabh Bachchan is commanding as lawyer Deepak Sehgal defending three women against allegations of prostitution by three young, well-connected men. Pink was hailed in India as a bold and long overdue cry advocating for women’s rights. While women’s agency had played central roles in Indian independent films, the star power of Pink’s lead Bachchan placed the film firmly in the realm of mainstream viewers.  ‘Pink is a powerful statement on the existing feudal mindset of a majority of India, where men and women are judged by a different yardstick. And if the man happens to be from a powerful family, then the fight for justice is even more skewed.’ Times of India
