LAILA AUR SATT GEET

Drama 1h 39m 2020

Adapted from the folk tale Kenchuli, this visually entrancing fable (with a core of steel) centres on the unforgettable Laila—a ferociously independent young Bakarwal woman from the politically fraught state of Jammu and Kashmir. When Laila moves to the forest with her new husband, shepherd Tanvir, her beauty and strength become the obsession of a befuddled local police officer and a forest guard, whose attentions she cleverly thwarts—while also forging a new identity for herself. Structured around a series of folk songs and poetic interludes—which function as Laila’s interior monologues—Laila Aur Satt Gee is a humorous feminist portrayal of one woman’s search for freedom and independence in a modernising world, while maintaining links to age-old traditions.
