Pink is a movie that portrays the issue of Sexual Assult faced by women in metro cities. Coming from various backgrounds to fulfill their ambitions, women already deal with a lot on their plate. And you can see in this movie how the ruthless society readily points fingers at the women’s character regardless of the truth. Yes, it is an intense movie that brings up the most common social issue but, it is raw and honest. Definitely not a “lesser known” Bollywood movie but, we had to mention it as it is not a part of the usual ones, you know!
Thanks to the ongoing #MeToo movement the women who earlier suppressed these issues within them for ample reasons are finally coming out and sharing their experiences in a way to empower the coming generations to take a stand for themselves.
