Lipstick Under My Burkha is as bold as it’s title suggests. It is the story of four sassy Bopal women, each experiencing a sort of sexual awakening, who undertaking daring and secretive measures to explore their sensuality outside of societal and religious norms. Their lust for excitement leads the four women into a colourful array of compromising situations, feeding the free flowing humour throughout. Initially banned by the Central Board of Film Certification in India for being overly “lady-oriented, their fantasy above life” - Lipstick Under My Burkha will shock and excite the Melbourne audience.
