Parched Movie Review

Leena Yadav has come up with out of box story this time unlike her previous films.  This movie will point out at the traditions of the country that are dragging the young women down.  The three protagonists gave their life and soul into their characters.  The characters suffer a lot due to the men they are bound with, the society they were living, and the traditions that are binding their hands from living the life.  This film from Leena Yadav is much relatable to Pink which was released last week.  It will raise many questions and focuses on the issues that most of the women are facing.  The movie has got wonderful dialogues that will slap us on face.  Oscar award winning cinematographer Russel Carpenter has brought life to the flick.  The editing by Kevin Tent is absolutely notable.
