Diagnosed with alopecia at 15, Siliguri girl Enakshi Dasgupta’s (Shweta Tripathi) biggest fear is losing her hair. Her self esteem and confidence takes a beating as her visible bald patches start drawing unnecessary attention at school. Her hair loss becomes a subject of concern for her parents and mockery for classmates. Enakshi’s rare condition not only hampers her peace of mind but also supposedly sabotages her marriage prospects.
Qasim Khallow’s film is a heartwarming tale of conquering fear, crushing societal standards of beauty and exploring the parent-child bond. The film is most relatable for women, who are conditioned to believe that they ought to be perfect if they wish to ‘bag a good husband’.
