kathleenjoy's rating of the film Pink Saris

Sampat Pal is a brave, flawed, passionate, feminist vigilante. She works so hard fighting for women's rights (especially Untouchables) and to empower them. Yet you realise that so much of what Sampat has to do is a compromise. She challenges and dismisses caste, but still has to work with it. I think of all the tears Sampat has wiped away with her dupatta. "Life is cruel for women".
