Lipstick Under My Burkha, which battled an unfair amount of resistance from the Censor Board ahead of its release, has been reviewed as the "funny", dark" and "necessary" by celebrities who enjoyed a special screening of the film. In his review for NDTV, Saibal Chatterjee said the four lead actresses "turn in brilliant performances, giving the bold, brassy, colourful drama an added edge."
Lipstick Under My Burkha tracks the life of four women - two Muslim characters and two Hindu - who reside in the same house. Their rebellion against social prejudices and their taste for the "prohibited" is what made the Censor Board dismiss it as "lady oriented" but is also what struck the right chord with many.
