Inspired by true events is the story of Priya (Sonali Kulkarni - Bride & Prejudice), a beautiful, affluent young woman suddenly widowed and left to fate. Alone in a land of extreme contrasts, she seeks peace in the "City of Widows", but instead of finding solace, Priya finds a cruel world filled with brutality. Despondent, she meets three remarkable women and together they embark on a journey of empowerment as they fight for the rights of the widows of India in this ultimately hopeful and uplifting story.
White Rainbow is a film that brings out many different emotions, one is anger that in our society today there's still this type of abuse on certain people. Second is a feeling of inspiration that these four women could stand up for what they believe is right in a land that attempts to silence them. But you do not have to live in India to have this relate to you, there's abuse issues everywhere today and it seems like society has turned a blind eye to it. The acting is perfect, all the women give very realistic performances and you can really feel for them. Also lets give credit to Writer/Director Dharan Mandrayar for taking on such a strong subject matter and dealing with it in truth. You can only hope that there's people out there with the power to make a difference and once they see this film they take the right measures to do so. White Rainbow is a film with a terrific cast and terrific directing, a piece of cinema that does what it sets out to do and that is to bring light to a subject that has been ignored for too long. A truly inspiring film that is a must-see. Released by Indican Pictures. ***** Out Of *****
