How do ordinary women ﬁnd ways to exercise their personal and sexual rights in a society full of restrictions? To what extent they must go to live and breathe freely? All these questions and more are answered by Alankrita Shrivastava's second directorial ﬁlm Lipstick Under My Burkha. This movie shows how sexual desires and fantasies of four women are suppressed by men both verbally and behaviorally in a small town of India. It is a conversation starter about gender equality, freedom and women's identity.
This is not the first time the CBFC has been seen as overstepping its mandate or been labeled draconian by the Indian press.

Rehana (Plabita Borthakur) is hoping to avoid taking the traditional route of going straight from her parental home into an arranged marriage by going to college. A sweet, shy girl who generally goes around in a burkha, she steals some lipstick from the local mall, and this small act of daring leads her to explore the sensual world of singing, dancing, drinking and flirting (still very guardedly) with boys. She also discovers campus feminism, but is she really strong enough to live up to her bold talk, and how will the other girls at her college react to her new persona?

Leela (Aahana) is a free-spirited woman who feels suffocated in the small town of Bhopal and uses her sexuality to manipulate the men in her life. Rihanna (Plabita) is a young college girl who idolises Miley Cyrus and wants to follow her fashion style. She has to hide her desires of a becoming a singer under a burkha, thanks to her orthodox parents.
Secondly, we hate the end credits because in the 118 mins we forge such a strong bond with these four that we are unwilling to say goodbye. And finally when the movie ends, the urge to head straight to the nearest Sephora and try on a nice shade of crimson lipstick is just painful!
