Tottaa Pataaka Item Maal: First Look Poster

A Potpourri of Vestiges Feature

The First Look Posters of Aditya Kripalani's ‘Tottaa Pataaka Item Maal’ have just been launched. The film has started its Festival rounds and will be screening at the Garden State Film Festival in New Jersey in March 2019.


Delhi is known as the rape capital of India. Four women from various parts of the Capital, (which is a vast union territory aside from being a city), meet by chance in a ‘ladies only’ taxi ride. Getting into an altercation with a man who’s teasing them, they end up choosing to make an example of him. They kidnap him, break him first physically, then mentally, keep him hostage, and bring him to the point of gang rape. Will they succeed in sending out a message to men all over India? Will they see the change they want? Will the darkness they chase, also make its own pact with them in the process? Tottaa Pataaka Item Maal, (The Incessant Fear of Rape), tries to explore these questions.
