      Raam Tarat Future Movies UK It takes tremendous nerve to produce a movie on female infanticide, especially in as astute and brutal an incarnation such as this. Rated: 4/5 Oct 30, 2017 Full Review Read all reviews

      Audience Member Outstanding , stupendous , breathtaking, Marvelous, worth to watch . ❤️💙💛💜🖤 Rated 5 out of 5 stars 01/19/23 Full Review Audience Member According to UNICEF, "a [2006] study in India estimated that prenatal sex selection and infanticide have resulted in approximately half a million missing girls per year for the past two decades". "Matrubhoomi" takes this to a horrifying extreme, telling the bleak story of a lone female in a village full of neanderthal men. Impressive debut by director Manish Jha. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 01/22/23 Full Review Audience Member Matrubhumi is stark, intense and brilliant....hence a must watch. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 01/15/23 Full Review Audience Member Imagine a village, a country, with no women. This film takes the disturbing truth of gender violence and infanticide in India to an even more disturbing end: what would happen when there was only one woman left? Tragic, extremely difficult to watch, but extremely well done. Rated 4.5 out of 5 stars 01/26/23 Full Review Audience Member Kylmaava kuvaus siita, mihin sukupuolipoliittista "perhesuunnittelua" riittavan pitkaan harjoittava yhteiskunta voi paatya. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 02/23/23 Full Review Audience Member Pour toutes les personnes qui croient que le cinema indien se resume a Bollywood Matrubhoomi est un film dur, , parfois exagere mais pour mieux montrer la realite sur la condition feminine en Inde Je crois qu'il n'y a pas grand chose a dire dessus ... juste ca : Voyez le!
