The Pink Mirror (Gulaabi Aaina)
This film was a brave raid the lifetime of tra-=n$-=ex-=uals, but CBFC couldn’t handle the blunt and much-needed portrayal of tra-=n$-=ex-=uality and decided to ban it.
You can watch the film on Netflix.
Firaaq, directed by Nandita Das, examines the aftermath of 2002 Gujarat r!ots in India. The film weaves in multiple story lines that follow the lives of a variety of characters: a Muslim-Hindu whose wife is h@-=un-=ted by the ghost of the r!ots; a Hindu-hating Muslim who hopelessly plans revenge; a marriage couple rethinking their decision to maneuver to Delhi post r!ots and a Muslim child who has recently lost his parents to the r!ots. Nandita Das manages to place together characters of an identical mindset on each side of the equation. It wasn’t a co-=ntro-=versial film in the least but a pure human interest story that doesn’t feel for a specific community.
