[[3]] Queen (2014) [imdb]

This movie passed 3 of 3 tests. It was entered by Moreorangy on 2014-03-14 08:21:37.



IwatchedQueen disagreed with the rating and said:
The two female leads in the movie connected over a man (Kangana kept talking to Vijaylakshmi about her husband and family, and kept asking her about her (Vijaylakshmi's) boyfriend, throughout the movie. All other females she talks to in the movie, are her family members who keep asking her about her husband.
Possibly one exception is the friend of Vijayalakshmi who works in Amsterdam. But the screen time devoted to the conversation was not more than 5 minutes, and most of the conversation involved families.

Hence, I am sure that Queen does not pass the Bechdel test.
