Soni, a young policewoman in Delhi, and her superintendent, Kalpana, have collectively taken on a growing crisis of violent crimes against women. However, their alliance suffers a major setback when Soni is transferred out for alleged misconduct on duty.Written by
Police Sub-Inspector Soni makes her first appearance in this film as bait in an 'Eve-teasing' sting operation: as she cycles, in plain clothes, along a dark city street, an oik cycles up beside her and starts making suggestive remarks. He follows Soni into an alleyway where her police comrades are waiting, but before they can arrest the man Soni starts to beat him with perhaps more force than is necessary. This leads to her being reassigned to the police's call centre (in echoes of another film shown at the 2018 London Film Festival, Gustav Möller's 'The Guilty'). Meanwhile, Soni's immediate superior, Kalpana, tries to convince *her* superior - whose romantic partner she is, handily - to reinstate Soni back to her squad.
As the film progresses we get a view of the everyday casual harassment the film-makers present as the lot of women in India: for example, as Soni is being shown the call centre ropes, a male caller ends his call by asking the female operator for her personal telephone number. Soni and Kalpana also have personal troubles: Kalpana's relationship with her partner/superior is put under strain due to her efforts on Soni's behalf; and Soni herself has to deal with her boyfriend trying to get back into her good books after betraying her at a terrible time.
Soni and Kalpana are interesting central characters, and Geetika Vidya Ohlyan is particularly good as the former. I would perhaps have appreciated a stronger central plotline - the film strikes me as being a loosely-woven collection of plot threads - but it was certainly well worth watching.
