A portrait of a controversial Indian sex advice columnist.
I previously wrote about the film for DOC NYC’s program, saying:
Dr Mahinder Watsa, a 93-year-old retired gynecologist, is India’s foremost “sexpert.” His daily newspaper column in the Mumbai Mirror dispenses practical, often humorous advice in response to some common and sometimes decidedly unusual questions about sex. Despite his popularity, Dr Watsa is not without critics, who accuse him of contributing to the decline of Indian morality. Sinha’s film is a lighthearted look at India’s answer to Dan Savage. Is he a hero of progress or an enemy of traditional values?
