Sanya Malhotra's upcoming film, Mrs, is generating buzz on the festival circuit, emerging as a favourite for its exploration of domesticity and gender roles. The Hindi remake of the acclaimed Malayalam movie, The Great Indian Kitchen (2021), Mrs is directed by Arati Kadav and is set to be the closing film at the New York Indian Film Festival (NYIFF) 2024.

Kadav expressed her excitement at having her film showcased at the festival. Speaking to Mid-day, she shared, “I look forward to the films screened at the NYIFF every year. So, I feel privileged that we've been chosen as the closing film. With this film, our aim is to connect with Indian audiences living not just in India, but also abroad, and this platform helps us reach the diaspora.”

Described as "exotically delicious," Mrs uses the backdrop of Indian cuisine to delve deeper into the societal pressures placed on women. The synopsis paints a picture of a young dance teacher, Richa, who falls for a wealthy doctor, Diwakar. However, their happily ever after quickly sours as Richa finds herself trapped in a loveless marriage, expected to cook, clean, and cater to her husband's whims. The synopsis cleverly uses culinary metaphors to depict the stifling nature of Richa's situation, describing her life as "an overcooked and tasteless happily ever after laced with misogyny, arrogance, and stubbornness." Despite the challenges, Richa doesn't give up easily. The synopsis highlights her defiance, stating that "The kitchen has the solution to all problems. So, Richa cooks splendid dishes with love and dedication and refuses to yield to male dominance."

The cast of Mrs boasts some promising talent. Sanya Malhotra takes on the lead role of Richa. Nishant Dahiya portrays Diwakar, the doctor who turns out to be a domineering husband. Rounding out the cast is Kanwaljit Singh, whose role remains undisclosed.

The film is produced by Jyoti Deshpande, Pammi Baweja, and Harman Baweja.
