True story about corruption and female resistance in Pakistan
26 June 2017 | by (Edinburgh, Scotland, UK) – See all my reviews

This British financed film is entirely set in Pakistan. Made by British-Pakistani director Sarmad Masud, it is based on a true story that casts a withering look at the patriarchal system of that nation and the corruption of the local authorities. Told in a non-linear style, it tells of three women faced with armed men led by her uncle who try to take her property forcibly from her. They lay siege to the house, fuelled by a sense of entitlement where men often have elevated property rights over women, even in a situation such as this one where the women were quite clearly the rightful owners of the land. The non-linear structure allows for several surprise plot developments to be introduced to us in a way that heightens the drama and increases the sympathy for the women. I wouldn't say it was necessarily the most dynamic story overall but the Pakistan setting did add a fair bit of authentic local colour, as it is not a part of the world known for film production. So, while this one felt a little bit limited in some ways, it definitely offers up something a little different too.
