Can't wait to hear what you think of Pink Saris. I hope there's a commentary track or a director interview, because I had lots of questions when it was over.

There was no commentary track or director interview. Even an epilogue would've been nice as Sampat Pal's relationship with her partner appears to be in jeopardy as the film comes to a close.
