This feisty film about ladies, their longings, desire and above all fantasies is an awesome voyage. Four ladies characters having a place with various eras tell a commonplace story of hawkishness, misogyny and sex segregation. Be that as it may, their eccentric stories make Lipstick a stimulating background. Regardless of whether its their sex charged unforgiving substances or their milder dreams, this film goes through horde circumstances effortlessly. Its unquestionably a standout amongst other movies of the year.
The story is set in Bhopal. All characters live in a solitary collective. The old house is claimed by Usha (Ratna Pathak Shah) and her family. She's referred to around the city as Buaji. Of her inhabitants Leela (Ahana Kumra), Shireen (Konkona Sen Sharma) and Rehana (Plabita Borthakur) experience comparative encounters in life, that puts the emphasis on their sexual needs and wishes. What's more, obviously, society's distorted ethics where ladies can't be open about lewd goals. Buaji is the leader of the cooperative and she's overlooked herself playing the female authority. Her shot experience with a six pack bearing swimming educator revives her Mills and Boon motivated live yearnings.

Lipstick Under My Burkha is both significant and relatable. The best part is, each of the four ladies and their stories and setups are consummately genuine. Yet, the film does not offer an answer for these ladies' issues. It takes a striking stand, yet does not lecture anything. The pave the way to the peak seems a bit excessively unsurprising and ascertained, yet the last scene is pitch consummate. Best piece of Lipstick is that it mixes cleverness, show and tragedy flawlessly. This film can make them giggle one minute and feeling all solemn in the exact next. Its lighting and camera treatment could've been somewhat more smooth, yet the minor glitches in method don't hamper the story in any capacity. Lipstick draws its quality from being a brassy little film about ladies' sexuality. That it takes these forbidden points and contorts them into an engaging ride is its greatest triumph.
At the core of this feisty film are the exhibitions.
