VIFF — Sir
This film will give you a chance to “visit” Mumbai, and experience the class and caste barriers that come with it.
What happens when servant, village girl works for the scion of a rich family? This film, that’s what! It is touching, funny, sad and illuminates the patriarchal attitudes that Indian women face.
Both of the main characters, Ratna (Tillotama Shome, who plays the servant from the village) and Ashwin (“Sir” played by Vivek Gomber) do a great job of representing the various worlds that they are each caught between.
Great job Rohena Gera on your feature debut. Hopefully more films to come!
