    Well While watching Badhai ho trailer I thought they will make the issue funny and nostalgic But As u go through They made me realise how sensitive the issue was Breaking stereotypes is the best we can give a chance to others to speak for themselves.

    Content is the new king...and people have accepted that...... It's always better to watch a quality film rather going for 300 crore Salman Khan Blockbuster...which is too mainstream....

    The director of "Period. End of Sentence." is also the only woman to be nominated in her category. And several of its producers are high school students. https://deadline.com/2019/01/period-end-of-sentence-oscar-nomination-high-school-students-teacher-publicist-1202539249/

    Urmila Chanam' s work on menstrual hygiene should not be overlooked.

    Aligarh to me was visual excellence compared to other Hindi movies of contemporary time .
