  • Brief


    Leena Yadav's creativity

    Parched is an excellent masterpiece from Leena Yadav. Indeed it's one of the best from her.
    This movie is based on beautiful city Rajasthan and is a women centric story.

  • Story

    It's story about

    4 women

    Women should have rights same as men, and they should do what they want to. That's the main focus of this movie.

    Rani (Tannishtha Chatterjee) is a widow who married her young son Gulab (Riddhi Sen) to a neighbourhood village girl Janaki (Leher Khan). Lajjo (Radhika Apte) is a childless woman in an abusive marriage. Bijli (Surveen Chawla) is a local dancer who gets farmed out for money by her handler. They all are living a parched life.

    They are all victims of age-old traditions like child marriage, physical abuse, alcoholic husbands and social apathy.

  • Watch out

    High Level Performances

    By all actors

    Leena shines with her great direction, she makes us feel we are living in that colorful & vibrabt village and realise that women should have all rights same as men wheather its about sexual desire or self esteemed life and all darkness from women life should be gone. All actors have done justice to their roles, specially Radhika, Tannishtha & Surveen did it fantastically.
