Morality TV and the Loving Jehad by Paromita Vohra

The Film looks outside the frames that weave the frenetic tapestry of breaking news on India’s news channels, to uncover a town’s complex dynamics – the fear of love, the constant scrutiny and control of women’s mobility and sexuality, a history of communal violence, caste brutalisation and feudal mindsets.
