About the Film: A gem of the eighties cinema, Mirch Masala is set in colonial India and highlights the cruelty and tyranny of the subedars (tax collectors) and also the sexism of the villagers in the face of oppression. This leads to the memorable climactic act of female defiance which has lost none of its power to this day.
