Who better than Shabana Azmi, Lillette Dubey and Aparna Sen to bring a bold and relatively unexplored topic in Indian cinema to the silver screen?
Sonata, written and directed by Aparna Sen, is the story of three unmarried women; Aruna Chaturvedi (Professor), Dolon Sen (Banker) and Subhadra Parekh (journalist) played by Aparna Sen, Shabana Azmi and Lillete Dubey respectively.
It’s the story of three women, going through life, with its ups and downs in an urban landscape. The film focusses on female bonding and addresses taboos that come with being an unmarried woman in society.
Sonata is an English film and also stars Aparna Sen’s real life husband, Kalyan Ray.
