Indian content creators have understood one of the biggest problems that women face – they and their relatives don’t care about their menstrual hygiene. There’re several films made on this – celebrating the men and women who are trying to break the barrier, and Netflix comes up with a documentary of its own, Period – End of a Sentence. Here’s our complete review.
Period. End of a Sentence talks about a taboo in India, menstruation. The duration of the documentary is less than an hour, but the director makes great use of the time. It has a no-nonsense approach towards how a group of women in Delhi are now trying to sell their professionally made, home made pads to the village in general. It has a breathless screenplay, that successfully creates an idea of how taboo the idea is in the minds of men and women today.
What’s Wow: With so much of noise around women hygiene, there’s this chance that the real problem might just get tone deaf. Period. End of Sentence is a crackling, fast paced documentary that works because of the stark but positive take on what a group of women are doing to make life comfortable for other women. The documentary is a mixture of person to camera and follow around film-making, which gives a documentary a whole new look.
What’s Blah: Nothing
Parting Shot: Period. End of Sentence is a quick-fire take on the life and times of a group of women who are looking to break barriers.
