Dolly Kitty Aur Woh Chamakte Sitare looks like a fun, empowered watch

Starring Konkona Sensharma and Bhumi Pednekar, Dolly Kitty Aur Woh Chamakte Sitare releases on September 18…

When have Konkona Sensharma and Bhumi Pednekar failed to impress? Never. Imagine putting the two together! That’s the kind of riot Alankrita Shrivastava’s Dolly Kitty Aur Woh Chamakte Sitare seems to be. Dolly (Sensharma) is unsatisfied with her sex life and then cheats on her husband with a delivery boy. Kitty (Pednekar), her sister, moves to Noida in search of a job and lands one at Red Rose Romance App, an application for sex talks. On the app, Kitty falls in love, and also discovers Dolly’s husband on it. And of course, everything begins to fall apart.

Both Bhumi Pednekar and Konkona Sensharma seem to be on the top of their game telling the stories of these two very empowered women. Sold as a Netflix original, Dolly Kitty Aur Woh Chamakte Sitare has been produced by Balaji Telefilms and releases on September 18, only on Netflix.

#BBSeenScene: Uyare In #ManuAshokan’s #Uyare, there is a moment in which Parvathy’s (@par_vathy) Pallavi is almost confident again to be able to not just click a selfie, but also post it on social media. Just when she does that, she’s brought down to reality, when she’s referred to as an “inconvenience”. But you don’t see her fighting for her right, mostly because that’s not who she is. She’s not here to be a feminist icon like Malti (@deepikapadukone from Chappaak) but only to live a ‘normal’ life. And that’s perhaps the brilliance of Uyare. At no point does this film become melodramatic and that’s why it talks about so many issues and none are sidelined – acid attack survivors, feminism, toxic relationships, single parents, beauty standards, among others. there’s no show, it’s all very real. There’s never any fuss. No claim to fame, even in her own little life. When Pallavi sees her face for the first time after the attack, there’s no shouting, just a plain sadness to not be able to be a pilot. She’s a lot like Gunjan (@janhvikapoor from Gunjan Saxena) – the only thing she knows and wants to be known for is flying and not because she shouted slogans of feminism. This rare understatement of emotions makes Uyare one of my favourite Malayalam films, a film one must watch and a performance you will definitely cherish. You can watch the film on @netflix_in. [This caption does not intend to take anything away from Malti and her story. Both Malti and Pallavi deserve equal recognition. In no way are we discounting Malti’s voice. It’s as important. We just mean to talk about the different forms in which similar battles can be fought, without taking away anything from either story.]
