"BAS!" is a film about trafficked women in Mumbai. Personally, I really liked this film because it gave a unique view into the individual lives of these women. I particuarly liked how the film doesn't shy away from talking about the things that are wrong with the system of transition as well, such as the fact that many of these women have to be married off at the end. The film is beautifully shot, and reveals some interesting facets of the lives of these women in transition.
