TIFF15: Powerful Portrayals Of Women In Leena Yadav’s Parched

Anokhi Pulse TV Nov 11, 2015

Love watching women in power? Then witness and experience the women in Director Leena Yadav's film Parched for yourself. . .

With bold visual confidence and stark realism, Leena Yadav sensitively and realistically portrays the story of four ordinary women in a rural Indian village in Rajasthan who bravely throw off the traditions that hold them in servitude.

Splendidly shot by Academy Award-winning cinematographer Russell Carpenter, and produced by Aseem Bajaj and Ajay Devgn, Parched gradually accrues a feeling of grandeur — reflecting the way in which Yadav elevates these women's stories, transforming each characters' struggles into a stirring portrayal of liberation.
