Director: Swati Semwal
Language: Hindi

Channel: Net Pix Short
Release Date: 31st October 2018

Synopsis:
Dildo Laa Rey is a story about two Muslim sisters from a conservative family. On one not so regular afternoon, the sisters Zara (Aanchal Sharma) and Shubina (Priyanka Arya) watch porn with their neighbor and friend Rashi (Manjiri Pupala). Much more conventional than Shubina and Rashi, Zara is both intrigued and appalled by the whole ordeal. Shubina, the adventurous one of the duo, talks to her sister about the taboo topic of sex and sex toys. This ensues into a whirlwind of drama and humor, leaving you to self-reflection about societal boundaries when it comes to women.

Yay!

  • The short addresses women’s sexuality, trying to break oppressive notions and stereotypes about women and their sexual fantasies- reminding the viewers of Lipstick Under My Burkha.
  • Despite such a sensitive content and the name (cannot ignore that, can we), the film is neither vulgar/crass, nor does it have the cringe-factor one would expect.
  • The representations used to depict the thoughts Zara goes through after the whole porn-watching episode is hilariously excellent.
  • The fresh faces, Aanchal and Priyanka, excel in carrying out their characters.
  • Swati Semwal, the brains behind the whole art and craft of Dildo Laa Rey, has managed to do perfect justice to the concept.

Nay!

  • The cinematography and sound at certain timeframe during the film are shabby, messy and could have been improved.
  • Some scenes go on for a longer duration than necessary- stretching a moment too far.

Bottom Line:

If you are looking for a fresh viewpoint, change of genre, and pinch of knowledge mixed with humor and drama- Dildo Laa Rey is a must watch.

Trivia:

  • Aanchal Sharma is the niece of the renowned Indian producer Ekta Kapoor.
  • Swati Semwal is known for her roles in films like Bareilly Ki Barfi, Fanney Khan, and television shows such as Yeh Hai Aashiqui, Pyaar Tune Kya Kiya, etc.
  • The short film will also be released on Sony Liv and Hungama Netwrok.
