The official synopsis of the movie reads, “Set in a newly developing industrial area on the outskirts of New Delhi, Dolly Kitty aur Woh Chamakte Sitare, chronicles the quiet transgression of two cousins (women), who through their complicated love-hate equation, enable each other to find freedom.”
Dolly Kitty Aur Woh Chamakte Sitare also stars Vikrant Massey, Amol Parashar and Aamir Bashir. The film had its international premiere at the 24th Busan International Film Festival in 2019.
Earlier, in a Facebook live with indianexpress.com, director Alankrita Shrivastava had spoken about the digital release of films where she said that there is enough scope for theaters and OTT platforms to co-exist. Talking about Dolly Kitty Aur Woh Chamakte, she had said, “It has a lot to do with the theme of small-town people coming to big cities and trying to make it big. It is a slightly different take on the idea that freedom comes with a price.”
Alankrita added, “I hope Dolly Kitty find its own audience. I have put my blood, soul and hard work. It was well-received in festivals it screened at, but the rest is on the audience.”
