India's first-ever Female Buddy film "Angry Indian Goddesses" has opened to good reviews from critics in India. The film, directed by Pan Nalin, features Sarah-Jane Dias, Tannishtha Chatterjee, Anushka Manchanda, Sandhya Mridul, Amrit Maghera, Pavleen Gujral and Rajshri Deshpande.
After garnering acclaim from around the world, the film has now impressed the critics in India. According to the critics, "Angry Indian Goddesses" is Indian version of "Sex and the City".
Subhash K Jha in his review said that Nalin's film peers right into women's soul.
"For all the perverts out there who think it's their birth-right to peer up women's skirts, here's a film that peers right into women's souls, and seven of them," he said.
"Take a bow, Mr Nalin. It's a miracle that a male director understands women so deeply," he added.
Sweta Kaushal of Hindustan Times comparing Nalin's film with Sarah Jessica Parker's "Sex and the City" movie said that "Angry Indian Goddesses" is worth a watch.
"Ultimately, Angry Indian Goddesses is a decent watch as long as the fun lasts but tumbles downhill with gathering pace as the 'anger' kicks in. Watch it for its good acting, the director's bravery in picking his premise and protagonists, but don't expect a statement on feminism or a revolutionary Bollywood film," she added.
Saibal Chatterjee of NDTV gave four-stars and said that it is a good film powered by peppy performances.
"Angry Indian Goddesses is a must-see and not only because it is unlike anything Hindi cinema has produced before. It strikes a fine and rare balance between thematic gravitas and breezy entertainment," he added.
Suprateek Chatterjee of The Huffington Post said: "On a superficial level, I'd say Angry Indian Goddesses is worth a watch for what it tries to achieve, and for the spirited performances from its winsome cast. "
