Interact with lead actress Tannishtha Chaterjee before the screening


Marathi language


Dr. Rakhmabai’s fight against her unconsented child marriage, gender discrimination and right to practice medicine in India was both isolating and ostracising in a highly conservative colonial India. With the fortunate aid of her surgeon step father, Dr. Rakhmabai pushed back against deep rooted cultural stigmatisation through unimaginable legal and social pressures, paving the way for Indian women. Dr. Rakhmabai is the stunning cinematic journey of a battle for a woman to earn the place of man and work for the welfare of her people.
