A highly popular 93 year-old sex advice columnist, Dr. Watsa, writes for a daily newspaper in Mumbai. Despite sex being a taboo topic in that country, the column’s brand of non-moralistic advice and humor has emboldened many to write in with their questions, the vast majority of whom seek basic information. The columnist gains popularity even while a ban on comprehensive sex education in schools is adopted by approximately one third of India’s states. Director Vaishali Sinha brilliantly captures Dr. Watsa’s treasured personality with compassion and humor.
