Lipstick Under My Burkha, which has been produced by Prakash Jha, narrates the story of four small town women, who explore their sexuality while countering regressive mindsets of the society and their family. Before its release, the film faced a hurdle with the Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC) as it refused to certify the film for its abusive content and audio pornography.
Lipstick Under My Burkha has received compliments not only from the film critics but also Bollywood celebrities like Shraddha Kapoor and Kalki Koechlin.
In his review for NDTV, film critic Saibal Chatterjee wrote that 'Lipstick Under My Burkha busts many a myth and serves the purpose of lifting the haze of prudery that generally surrounds the portrayal of women in Hindi cinema.'
"Lipstick Under My Burkha is a bold, brassy, colourful drama that redefines the female gaze. The actors turn in brilliant performances, giving the film an added edge," wrote Saibal Chatterjee.
Lipstick Under My Burkha released in the theatres along with Tiger Shroff's Munna Michael and Hollywood film Dunkirk.
