The YouTube channel of the PÖFF has already dropped the trailer of the film which seems to hold a powerful tale of womanhood battling the still-rooted issues in our society. 

This film is a remake of the critically acclaimed Malayalam film The Great Indian Kitchen.

The film is produced under the banner of Jio Studios and Baweja Studios. 

Mrs.Trailer: Sanya Malhotra Trapped In Patriarchy In Her Upcoming Film:

Malhotra plays the crucial role of a bride who was once a dancer now trapped in a household set-up that still runs with patriarchal ideas. The trailer highlights a family that expects Malhotra's character to cook meals thrice a day and keep up with their demands putting her dreams as secondary.  

Mrs is a social drama that explores the gender roles and expectations placed on women in Indian society. The film stars Malhotra as a young woman who moves into her new in-laws' house after getting married. She soon finds herself trapped in a cycle of domestic drudgery, as she is expected to cook, clean, and take care of the house and children, while her husband and in-laws go about their lives.

The film has been praised for its realistic portrayal of the lives of Indian women and its unflinching critique of patriarchy. 


The trailer starts with Malhotra's character being welcomed into the family calling her "You are now our daughter" and then can be seen tirelessly cooking and meeting the never-ending demands of her family without any helping hands. A family who expects her to cook thrice a day, and meet all their demands keeping her dreams secondary. 

The story takes a sharp turn when Malhotra refuses to touch the feet of her husband. Her husband then commands her that if she wants to stay in the household she would have to abide by the rules of this household to which Malhotra asks "Or what?" which marks the end of the trailer. 


Kanwaljit Singh is seen playing the role of Malhotra's character's father-in-law who is seemed to be the head of the house. 

Singh plays the character who expects Malhotra to cook freshly cooked meals thrice a day, who only prefers pot-cooked biryani and freshly made hot rotis, and expects Malhotra to attend him on his first call without any delays.
