About the movie:

Collectively directed, Turup is set in Bhopal and tells the story of three women, in the backdrop of growing right wing fundamentalism. A chess game which is a permanent fixture in many areas of Bhopal became the metaphorical background to the playing out of the underlying simmering tensions that form a part of the film’s plot.

Against this simmering backdrop, a domestic worker with a secret hobby, a young woman in love and a former journalist struggling with married life must make their moves with care. When caste, class, religion and gender come into play, there are boundaries to be negotiated, and the very rules of the game stand challenged.
