First it was rappers in Dharavi in Gully Boy, now Sonchiriya.
This movie not only talks about caste issues, but about gender issues, about pedophilia and even emergency.
Usually, Bollywood shy away from caste issues but not this movie. It openly talks about caste issues.
Bollywood has shown movies with gender issue like Damini and Lajja , but they were rather preachy. Sonchiriya shows gender issue as it is.
I won’t talk much about pedophilia, but I would say one thing – it is shocking
This movie is set in emergency background, but it does not go deep into it
