Another good review of Yoni Ki Baat:

...Chicks talking about their innards could quickly degenerate into giggly slumber-party chat or, conversely, into grim agitprop polemics. And since we're talking South Asian chicks, nothing could be simpler than to feed colonialist appetites hungry for atrocity-related tales of oppressive sexism. ( How brave these actresses must be! marveled one opening-night playgoer, as if the artists had only yesterday stepped with dainty sandled feet on the shores of Ellis Island ) . The Rasaka ensemble is to be commended, however, for selecting material that speaks with uneffacing candor ( laced with plenty of wry humor ) rather than pandering to popular stereotypes.
