I remember loving Zubeidaa as a teenager, kyunki waise rebellious years toh chal hi rahe thhe. But re-watching it as an adult, as a woman, able to empathise with not just Zubeidaa but also with her mother, her husband’s first wife, her aunt, the film hits different. Watch @Sucharita Tyagi’s throwback breakdown of the 2001 film.
