Who doesn’t harbour secrets? Mishti Gals (sweet swearing in Bengali) tells the funny, poignant and scorching story of the lives of three British Bengali women. Frenemies in their 40s, they have all made life choices which defy expectation. A repressed lecturer called Shubarna, a shopaholic city worker, Lata, and a brazen media socialite, Mou, live in the fast changing landscape of E1. None of them are married with the obligatory 2.2 children. Instead, against all the odds, they make merry and blaze other paths – some hilarious, and some back-stabbingly serious.
Welcome to the real east end!
