There's also Mowgli's surrogate mother, but as far as I remember, she and Shanti don't talk to each other at all.

Marķa disagreed with the rating and said:
Other movies have passed the test even though some female characters are not named. When Shanti and her mother reunite, her mom says "Shanti, I was so worried about you" and Shanti replies, "I'm okay. Mom, I'm so sorry. I was only trying to help Mowgli" So, it passes at least the test of two females talking, and if you consider Shanti's second utterance separate from the first, it might count as also being an exchange about something besides a man.
