“Social taboos and the status of women form the focus of a delicately observed drama about the relationship between a wealthy man and his maid” Guardian

Set in contemporary Mumbai, writer and director Rohena Gera’s debut film Sir is a sharply crafted urban fairy-tale with fine comic touches. The script is wonderfully underplayed and Tillotama Shome (Monsoon Wedding, Qissa) is in superb form bringing to life the nuances of Ratna, a widow and migrant worker has aspirations of becoming a tailor. The cast also includes Vivek Gomber who starred in the award-winning Court (Not Just Bollywood 2017).
