Lipstick Under My Burkha narrates the story of four small town women, who counter the regressive mindsets of the society and their family. The film has been produced by Prakash Jha.
Ahead of its release, Lipstick Under My Burkha faced an objection from the Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC) over its abusive content and audio pornography.
In his review for NDTV, film critic Saibal Chatterjee said that the film 'busts many a myth and serves the purpose of lifting the haze of prudery.' "Lipstick Under My Burkha throws the whole she bang into the pot - the result is a big, big bang that is bound to ring in our ears for a long, long time," he wrote.
"The actors turn in brilliant performances, giving the film an added edge," Saibal Chatterjee added.
Lipstick Under My Burkha released in theatres along with Tiger Shroff's Munna Michael and Hollywood film Dunkirk.
