The trailer of Dolly Kitty Aur Woh Chamakte Sitare released last week, two days after the announcement of its release date. For those who have not been following Netflix’s latest movie updates, this film is a comedy-drama produced by Ekta Kapoor with Konkona Sen Sharma and Bhumi Pednekar in the lead roles.

Dolly Kitty Aur Woh Chamakte Sitare seems like an interesting story with a brilliant cast. But that’s not all! Here are five reasons why we are really excited about the upcoming movie:
A tale of sisterhood
Dolly and Kitty focusses on two sisters living in Noida. They share secrets, they fight, they trust and they love each other. The story revolves around how these ordinary women find their true calling and become sexually liberated while helping each other discover freedom in their own unique ways.
Reminiscing about city life
The movie explores city life in suburban Delhi in the pre-pandemic era. Even if we cannot step out anymore and nightlife in the city has come to a stop, watching this movie will certainly make us reminisce about the good old days when we had the freedom to enjoy life.
Konkana + Bhumi looks like a killer combo!
The best part about this film is that it has two kickass actresses leading the cast. Konkana and Bhumi have proven that their performances are not worth missing and with co-stars like Vikrant Massey, Amol Parashar, and Aamir Bashir, we are certainly looking forward to this new medley.

From the makers of another feminist masterpiece
The film has been directed by Alankrita Shrivastava, whose previous collaboration with Ekta Kapoor brought us the witty comedy-drama Lipstick Under My Burkha. She definitely gets female camaraderie right and we have high expectations from this one.
Exploring women’s sexual liberation
Dolly is shown to be a married woman unsatisfied with her sex life. Eventually, she begins to cheat on her husband with a delivery man. Kitty starts working for a phone sex company, where she meets Pradeep, and they eventually fall for one another. Sex is usually a controversial subject in Indian cinema and talking about women’s sexual liberation is a total ‘no-no’. But once again, Kapoor and Shrivastava have decided to tackle this taboo and explore it with a sense of freedom and grace. We just cannot wait!
