The film represents the oppressed women of stereotypical society dominated by men. Also portrays how a woman can grow strong raised her voice to fight against oppression. Although it was shown in a more religious or mythological way with folklores. But overall it conveyed the messege of empowerment. So it’s worth a shot.
