Aparna Sen’s powerful new drama follows Naina (Konkona Sen Sharma), a professor in criminal psychology married to academic Aftab (Arjun Rampal). Their lives change one night when Naina is raped and her friend killed. The rapist is sentenced after Naina testifies, but she soon discovers she is pregnant.
Sen is one of the longest-standing woman writer-directors in India, first coming to international attention as a child actor in Satyajit Ray’s Teen Kanya (Three Daughters). Here she examines the psychology of violence, raising disturbing questions about gender, class and legal rights
