Frieda (Sarah-Jane Dias), a successful photographer, is getting married. On the eve of her wedding, she gathers her friends living all across India to a ramshackle beachside villa in the state of Goa. The diverse group includes a businesswoman, an aspiring actress, a housewife, a singer/songwriter, and the house servant. There’s only one problem: She won’t say who her fiancé is. Thus begins an impromptu bachelorette party that lasts not a night, but a full week. Through the festivities, the group discusses everything from the benefits of a super-hot (shirtless) next-door neighbor to the daily sexual harassment they face. No subject is off limits as these women depict, frankly and sometimes humorously, what it means to be a woman in this rapidly changing country. Their bond of friendship brought them all together, and by the end of the week it will take them to extreme lengths. Director Pan Nalin has crafted a film, derived entirely from the actor’s improvisations, that turns the tables on the Bollywood cliché of damsels in distress. Cranking the amp up to 11, these goddesses scream, “Grrl power!”
