Film review: Angry Indian Goddesses
An outspoken, energetic female buddy film
Angry Indian Goddesses has no intention of letting the audience ease into the film. Ten minutes in, Pammy (Pavleen Gujral) has dropped her gym weights on an eve teaser’s foot; photographer Frieda (Sarah-Jane Dias) has quit a fairness cream shoot; singer Mad (Anushka Manchanda) has attacked hecklers at a show; company head Su (Sandhya Mridul) has chewed out her employees at a meeting; Jo (Amrit Maghera) has spectacularly failed at being a damsel in distress; and Lakshmi (Rajshri Deshpande) has a man, quite literally, by the balls—all this while In the Hall of the Mountain King builds to a crescendo in the background. Then, accompanied by the supremely aggressive strains of Bhanvari Devi hollering Kattey, we crash into the opening credits.
