Is there a bigger, more powerful creative flex in Zoya Akhtar’s career than silencing her critics with her shortest film, starring her quietest protagonist? Her 20-minute short in the Netflix anthology Lust Stories focused on a housekeeper entangled in a taboo sexual relationship with her employer, which she has long been accused of doing unfairly. It’s set entirely inside a middle-class apartment, treats supporting characters as background noise, and essentially grabs prejudiced audiences by the scruff of the neck and demands that they pay attention to a person who has been so dehumanised by society that expressing basic human emotions feels like an act of rebellion for her.
