It follows the lives of three women who are on trial for the attempted murder of a group of influential men. Bachchan plays their lawyer.

The trailer shows how these men have mentally and physically assaulted Pannu's character and have tried to "teach her and her friends a lesson" for lodging a police complaint against them.

Throughout the trial, which is more of an ordeal for these women, they are accused of being licentious and questioned if they demanded money in exchange for sex.

While on trial, the women are subjected to constant character assassination.

And it is uncomfortable to watch.

The film seems to address how sometimes, even the judicial system can have a messed up attitude towards women who have been victims of sexual assault. Hopefully, Pink would nudge the conversation about ending the trend of victim-blaming and character assassinations in the right direction.
