The director of the movie Gauri Shinde tries to frame the real life of an Indian woman in this modern society where her children and husband disrespects her. They family do not want any reason to disrespect the woman, named Shashi, and the sole reason behind this is that she is a homemaker and do not know English. At the end of the movie, Shashi went to her sister who lives in the US to learn the language.
Queen is one of the best movies directed by Vikas Behel. This movie revolves around a simple Indian girl named Rani, who was ditched by his fiancé just before the wedding day.
