Hindi Play (120 mins)
Item looks at the B-grade film world through the eyes of L. Rakesh, an assistant to superstar Sapna. Rakesh, as a sensitive narrator, introduces us to all the milestones of this film actress’s life while exposing the objectification of the female body, the male chauvinistic media that exploits a woman’s image to sell its products and the toll it takes on Sapna.
