Indian Connect

Lipstick Under My Burkha

Alankrita Shrivastava’s directorial Lipstick Under My Burkha is set in rural India. The plot revolves around four women trapped in different worlds. They live out their desires through secret acts of rebellion. Trapped in a conservative society, these women break the mould and go in search of a little freedom. The film features Konkona Sen Sharma, Ratna Pathak and Aahana Kumra.

Psycho Raman

The film is about a serial killer, Raman Ragav, who terrorised Mumbai in the 1960s. A dark and grimy saga follows Raman, a killer born in the slums, as he roams the streets of present day Mumbai with his trusty car jack looking for prey. Raman believes he has found his alter ego in a policeman called Raghavan and starts to obsess about getting him to reveal his darker side. Directed by Anurag Kashyup, the film features Nawazuddin Siddiqui and Vicky Kaushal in the lead roles.
