IMDB Rating: 7.1

Where to Watch: Netflix

When a Bollywood film opens with a death scene, you can expect tonnes of sorrow, grief, gossiping relatives and a haunting instrumental background score. However, Pagglait on Netflix is a quirky take on Indian funerals. The lead character in the film played by Sanya Malhotra is unable to even shed a tear at her husband’s funeral. While relatives and family express their condolences, you’ll find her dumbstruck. She instead craves things like chips and Pepsi which further irk, confuse, upset and irritate the rest. Pagglait is definitely an unusual tale on the usual ‘matam ka mahaul’. It’s funny in parts, shows the hypocritical nature of Indian families after the death of their son, highlights greed, personal tensions and most importantly teaches us how a woman can redefine happily-ever-after even after becoming a widow. Despite its slow pace, Pagglait makes an endearing watch.
