Jeo Baby’s much discussed feature film ‘The Great Indian Kitchen’ has been awarded the ‘German Star of India’ in the feature film category of the 18th Indian Film Festival Stuttgart . Due to covid 19 pandemic, Europe’s largest festival of Indian film had to switch to digital cinema.
“It is a homage to the young and strong Indian wife who tries to break out of old traditions and structures, longing for appreciation and self-development.” Jeo Baby said.
The movie showcased oppressive routine of housework, Indian cooking, and sacrificial service to husband and father-in-law. He said his movie is a shout out and protest against injustice towards a homemaker who is always taken for granted by men of the house.
