Pink (2016)

The story of three independent flatmates living in New Delhi, Pink is a legal thriller that presents an uncomfortable and raw but relatable topic of consent. The plot reveals itself as the women prove their innocence and the accused man’s harmful intentions. You would feel a surge of emotion as the age-old sagas of misogyny and biases come forth.
