Wah! Wah! Girls
It is a story that takes us in flashback to Soraya's youth when her father (Tony Jayawardena) sold her (played when young by Sheena Patel) to a woman running a Mujra troupe (Rina Fatania). It is the sort of plot that frequently crops up in Indian cinema and here the whole story is framed as though it were a film watched on television by Rina Fatamia's cheerful Bindi whose husband goes off to a conference leaving her to work on a paper she is supposed to be preparing with instructions not to waste time watching television. Watching over them all is a deity whose representatives are the pigeons who frequently flutter onto the scene, controlled by hooded puppeteers who sometimes also join the chorus and push around Bindi's oversized armchair so that she can be there for every scene—and sometimes joins in the action.
