It is about the story of a young policewoman named Soni (Geetika Vidya Ohlyan) and her superintendent Kalpana (Saloni Batra), dealing with the growing violent crimes against women in Delhi. The movie chronicles the lives of two Indian women working at the same police department and coming to terms with gendered imbalances, violence and sexual harassment.

The movie shows how these two cops (both are part of special decoy operation) take up the daily challenges as they perform their high-pressure official duties to make the city safer for women. Ivan Ayr’s and Kislye’s script is marvelous as it explores the personal and professional lives of the cops, their ways of dealing with things, and their mutual camaraderie.

The nuanced performances delivered by both Geetika and Saloni keep up with Ivan’s sensitive writing. To sum up, Soni is all about the power imbalance intrinsic in our society.

With Soni, Ayr has touched a revelant subject matter and with a powerful script, he has tried to breathe life into a grounded fashion. Clearly it is a movie that defies expectations and despite the fact that Netflix has not done enough marketing for it, it still by far the best pick from India so far.
