Dolly and Kitty could be any small town cousins. In the world of Alankrita Shrivastava, they become fictional case studies of real desires that the Indian woman of today might harbour, even as she grapples with an innate conservative mindset and a society that is still too inflexible while accepting her sexual mores.

Dolly and Kitty seek the same. Dolly, the older one, is a mother-of-two who has made peace with her sexless marriage and her mundane job. Her cousin Kitty, whose real name is Kaajal, has recently arrived from Darbhanga district in Bihar. She’s wide-eyed and determined to shine in the big city, which in this case is Greater Noida. Both are ordinary, middle-class women seeking the things that the men around them take for granted – agency, sexual satisfaction, freedom. They can be foolish, nasty and competitive but ultimately, they help each other to forge a path.

Female desire is one of those thorny issues that mainstream Hindi cinema has always had difficulty touching upon: when touch per se is so hard to show on screen without all kinds of self-righteous moral stakeholders making a noise, anything that involves grown men and women and the thing between them becomes a toughie.
Alankrita Shrivastava’s Dolly Kitty Aur Woh Chamakte Sitare blows off, with a great deal of flair, feeling and courage, the layers of repression and hypocrisy that surrounds us. You can draw a broad thematic connection between the director’s previous film Lipstick Under My Burkha and this one, which can be seen both as a worthy follow-up, and a terrific companion piece.

‘Dolly Kitty Aur Woh Chamakte Sitare’ calls out the hypocrisy around seemingly happy marriages right at the beginning, when Kajal (Bhumi Pednekar) tells her cousin, Dolly (Konkona Sen Sharma) that her husband Amit (Aamir Bashir) has been hitting on her. When Dolly insists Kajal may have misunderstood his friendly, protective behaviour, she spells it out for her cousin, “Amit ji humse sex karna chahte hain.” But there are more things on Dolly’s mind than to get worked up about this piece of information, like making plans to move into a plush new complex, where the couple’s new flat is under construction. When money falls short for their installments, Dolly hustles – by either stealing from her office or selling her jewelry. Her day at work usually starts off by making three cups of tea – one for her boss, one for her colleague and one for herself.
Kajal, a young girl, wanting to live an independent life, comes to Noida to stay with her cousin Dolly while searching for a job. On the face of it, Dolly has the perfect family set up with her husband and two kids, but is it really? And will Kajal be able to live the life of her dreams eventually?
