Its not an exceptional movie. However its got a heartbreaking depiction of the hardfought battle by a bunch of women for the right to work on equal terms. Apparently it was loosely based on a one of the first successfully fought and won sexual harrassment cases. Although it tends to get rather overly sentimental in places, specially towards the end, where it seems to pretty much disintergrate, I was willing to forgive that, and cried every bit of the way with Charlise Theron. Some of the scenes were handled really beautifully, for example the shots of the laundry, and the questions they raise about unpaid labour. It would've been good if they'd removed the whole irrelevant last 15 minutes, and instead used that time to build a few credible men in the initial phases, could've uplifted the movie massively, from simply being a bit of black and white fight, to a more nuanced real life depiction.
I'm hoping with the increasingly diverse and interesting things coming out of the bollywood stable, we'll get to see some of the philadelphia/ erin brockovitch/ north country genre sometime soon!
