Pinky Memsaab

Hajra Yamin’s next film Pinky Memsaab is a tale of desires, ambitions, and flaws!

We’ve been raised to believe that movies are a reflection of the society that we live in. Their inspiration comes from cultural practices, psychological framework and the likes and dislikes of the society. And that might just be true to a certain extent.

Maid (a term many dislike). Being people and most importantly human beings, some clearly enjoy the job more than others. Some are treated as members of the family; others become the victims of appalling treatment or abuse.
