    In the India of 1990's, which hadn't yet opened up to the glitter of free market and unimaginable choices, monotony had a flavour attached to it, which was crafted with utmost care and attention over the years. What happens when a lonely home maker from middle class Mumbai starts getting a taste of novelty, through a metaphorical new automatic pressure cooker and the attraction from a younger man. Will she be able to allow new commodities to enter the floodgates of her world?
    Pressure Cooker is an effort to look at the changing modernising worlds of commodity and sexuality in an era where change of anything, especially of a kitchen appliance was a deeply emotional issue, from the eyes of a middle aged Mumbai woman.

    आजकल लड़कियों को ऐसे क्यों दिखाते हैं कि खाना बनाना उन्हें पसंद नहीं है या फिर खाना पकाना कोई गंदा काम है, मै एक लड़का हूँ और मुझे तो खाना बनाने में बड़ा मज़ा आता है, हॉबी है मेरी तो अच्छा खाना बनाना और मेरी वाइफ भी अच्छा बनाती है, उसने कभी ऐसे नहीं जताया कि घर काम करना कोई तुच्छ या हीन काम है. In fact she is more respected in my family because she is a home maker who does the most important work in family ie make a home and keep it composed. And almost every day i cook in the evening after coming back from office as I like that, washing cloths is no difficult because of automatic washing machine, rest all the work is done by maid. Never heard my wife complaining.

    This is the perfect example of patriarchy society, where male can treat his wife the way he wishes to. Make her stop listening to radio, insult her for his own carelessness, not allowing her to get basic kitchen equipment like cooker. Still in the end it is the female character who crawls back to such toxic person because " pati parmeshwar" hai.

    What song is the one that starts at 10:28? Or at least could anyone, please, tell me the first words in it? I am not Indian, but I love Indian old music and I noticed in many cases the first words of a song are its very title. I could search for it as this. Thank you!
