What Will People Say (12A*)

The Bagri Foundation London Indian Film Festival

A still from What Will People Say

Director Iram Haq’s compelling tale has been collecting awards worldwide since its debut at Toronto Film Festival. 

It tells of a young Pakistani teenager, Nisha whose happy-double-life in Norway is torn apart when her father discovers her with her white Norwegian boyfriend. Outraged and under pressure from the community, he sends her off to Pakistan to ‘learn how to behave properly.’ Trapped in a land she doesn’t know, with a hostile extended family who see her as a shameful westerner Nisha is forced to make hard choices.

Maria Mozhdah makes a powerful debut as Nisha alongside Adil Hussain as her troubled father.
