Daro Mat, or “Don’t Be Afraid,” deals with the Indian Culture and the women who never express their opinions. This film specifically focuses on a single named Divya (Lakshmi Devy) who is quite intelligent, but is raised to believe that having an opinion is simply not an option. Through the course of the story she displays a strength of character portrayed by simple thoughts.
