Storyline

Ruhi Singh is a small town girl with big city dreams. She sets off to Bombay to win the title of Miss India--a launching pad to fame and a surefire way to stand out in a country of 1.2 billion people. Just hours from the Miss India beauty boot camp is another training ground for girls--that of the Durga Vahini, a Hindu nationalist group exclusively for women. Here we meet Prachi Trivedi, a young, fearsome drill sergeant training Indian girls to fight against Western culture, Islam and Christianity by any means necessary including violence. Gliding back and forth between the action of the two camps, the dreams and conflicts of India and young Indian women are laid bare-- the two opposing worlds aren't as far away from each other as they seem.

Eye opener
24 May 2016 | by jaysharmadSee all my reviews

I am Hindu and after watching this movie, I was shocked to know that still there are places where we have Hindu extremists. I am so sad for the father of trainer of Durga vahini. On one end he is happy with her, to be a trainer and on the other end he wants her to marry a good guy and live a normal life. I don't understand why parents like him leave their children confused. He will definitely regret for the actions that his daughter will take. Apart from his daughter, he is spoiling the future of all other students there in Durga Vahini.

Such institutes should be banned in India. How will we have peace and harmony in India, if our kids join such institutes and carry so much rage and violence inside for others.
