About the Documentary:
Izzatnagari ki asabhya betiyaan, directed by Film and Television Institute of India graduate Nakul Singh Sawhney, follows the resistance narratives of five protagonists. Some of the families projected have been victimised by illegal diktats issued by the khaps. […]
The film takes an anti-khap stance and cocks a critical eye on the institution which openly flouts the law of the land in parts of western Uttar Pradesh, Haryana and Rajasthan. [The Hindu]
