The numbers are further extraordinary owing to the tough competition it faced from Tiger Shroff’s Munna Michael. On the contrary to Lipstick Under My Burkha, Munna Michael released on 3000 screens. But amidst the competition, the film found its audience.
Lipstick Under My Burkha relates a hard-hitting topic of women empowerment and society’s prejudice for the Indian women. The story revolves around the lives of four women and residents of Hawai Manzil who are striving to get the freedom to be themselves in a small town. The film features Konkana Sen Sharma, Ratna Pathak, Aahana Kumra and Plabita Borthakur in the lead roles.
Munna Michael on the other hand is a entertaining movie,which is based around the life of an orphaned dancer Munna (Tiger Shroff) who is raised up by a chorus dancer Michael (Ronit Roy) in a Mumbai Chawl. He agrees to train a gangster Mahindar Fauji(Nawazuddin). Things take a bitter turn when they both end up falling for the same girl.
