Embroideries – 4.5 Stars

What happens when 10 women get together in a room – Embroideries.

Whoever has grown up in joint family amongst grandmothers, sisters, mothers, cousins and aunts – will know how it is when all of them get together under one roof. The conversations and gossips, the experiences and tips, the bitching and men bashing, mother in laws and weddings, bedroom secrets and child births... the list is long but whole lots of fun. There is not much difference between Persian and Indian society when it comes to bringing up their women in a conservative society and high doses of culture and morals. But what happens behind closed doors is another story.
