lipstick Under My Burkha Movie review

Review by Sameeksha on 

Lipstick Under My Burkha is a rare Bollywood film, that without being preachy in its tone, serves the potential of wounding the patriarch in you. And rightly so.


Rating: 2.5/5. Review by Bollywood Hungama

On the whole, LIPSTICK UNDER MY BURKHA deserves praise for its brave premise, characters, and storytelling. At the box office, however, the film will face an uphill task as the risqué and unconventional content will appeal only to niche audiences and that too just in the metropolitan cities.

Rating: 3.5/5. Review by Rohit Vats on Hindustan Times

Every character in the film deals with different kinds of prejudices and restrictions but eventually, they prove to be the same – curbing the freedom of women. The small town setting enables the four characters to be part of each others’ lives and eventually come together. This is a film you must not miss as it is not every day that Bollywood films talk of women and their desires.

Rating: 3.5/5. Review by Ahana Bhattacharya on Koimoi

This is a brave film which many in this male chauvinistic society might find difficult to digest. Although I failed to understand what is so “lady-oriented” about the film I would definitely thank CBFC for making me more curious about it. 3.5 stars!

Rating: 1.5/5. Review by Shubhra Gupta on Indian Express

What makes the film it is, is the upfront, frank manner in which female desire and fantasy are treated, running like a strong, vital thread through the film. Dreams can keep you alive, and age is just a number.

Rating: 2/5. Review by Tushar P Joshi on Bollywood Life

A must watch for some terrific performances by the lead cast, Lipstick Under My Burkha will hopefully bring to light some issues that need attention and start a discussion or a conversation between women who are struggling for the most basic right in life – one to be happy.


Rating: 3/5. Review by Saibal Chatterjee on NDTV Movies

Lipstick Under My Burkha is the story of four women, who explore their sexuality while battling a regressive society and mindset. Konkona Sen Sharma, Ratna Pathak Shah, Aahana Kumra and Plabita Borthakur are the four protagonists of the film with Sushant Singh and Vikrant Massey in supporting roles.

Rating: 3.5 stars  By Raya Ghosh, TIMES NOW

In the final moments of Lipstick Under My Burkha, as the four protagonists face the explosive consequences of their perceived rebellions, we hear firecrackers bursting in the background. Director Alankrita Shrivastava uses the backdrop of Diwali to tell us that the lives of these women may be going up in flames, but they’ll go out with a bang.

Rating: 3.5/5. Review by Anna MM Vetticad on Firstpost

So of course Lipstick Under My Burkha could potentially upset many, many people. It has the ability to grab a person by the collar, shake them up and make them feel unsettled even if they refuse to introspect. I am willing to bet that Pahlaj Nihalani’s Censor Board will not be the last conservatives unnerved by this feisty, disturbing yet celebratory film.
