… in 5 words:

Crazy psycho is actually funny.


… in 25 words:

If only every mother defended her son like this… or maybe not. Kali Ma takes a difficult subject and makes it accessible through dark humour.


… in 50 words:

The issue of homophobes and bullies is common within LGBT cinema. Kali Ma flips this by focusing on the actions of a mother, rather than the trauma of her son. It is refreshing to see this perspective as well as cultural diversity in an LGBT film. I thoroughly recommend it.
