Hindmata is a quirky and humour-filled web series that focuses on women’s empowerment on the one hand, and on the other, casts an eye on the pathetic state of women’s prisons in the country. The USP of the show is that it does all this with humour and light-hearted fun.
A fashion designer (Rashi Mal) has her career at stake with business going downhill. To renew her contract with a fashion retailer, she must get 300 dresses ready within three months, and with a firm eye on cost-efficiency. She hits upon the idea of using women prisoners in the Hindmata jail to manufacture the dresses at minimum cost.
Under the guise of teaching the women inmates of the jail an employable skill, the fashion designer has her own selfish interests at heart. A well-educated inmate (Manasi Rachh) within the jail gets wind of her ulterior plan. However, tables turn as she mingles more with the inmates, understands their trials and tribulations, and they in turn try to understand her. Do both sides get together and work for their mutual benefit?
