Movie Boozer Review: India’s Daughter (2015)

October 22, 2015


Watching India’s Daughter is a gut-wrenching experience. It will suck the life out of you completely, draining you with its brutal retelling of the 2012 gang rape and subsequent murder of Joyti Singh in New Delhi, India. Joyti was a 23-year-old medical student who decided to see Life of Pi with a good friend as a celebration of having one last night of freedom before an internship set to begin the next day. While on their way home, Joyti and her friend Awindra Pratap Pandey, who is interviewed throughout the film, were lured onto a bus they thought was heading their way. On that bus Awindra was beaten while Joyti was savagely gangraped and assaulted by five or six men. These men soon after left the two on the side of road, resulting in Joyti’s death brought on by the brutal complications and abuse her body underwent. India’s Daughter is a horrifying film to sit through, but is a much-needed, important ripple in the sea of change that needs to happen in conversations all over the world about the dangerously conservative thought that dominates how females are treated.
