Dr. Mahinder Watsa is a 93-year old journalist and former gynaecologist who has been writing newspaper columns in India for over 50 years. Since 2005, he has given sex advice in the daily newspaper the Mumbai Mirror, and his sardonic, non-judgmental and brutally honest style has proved hugely popular with readers. A vocal advocate for wider and more open sex education, Dr. Watsa is a formidable and charming personality, unafraid of antagonising more conservative elements of Indian society, who have attempted to silence him with lawsuits and obscenity charges.  Vaishali Sinha follows her award-winning debut documentary Made in India (2010) with this warm, wry portrait of a fascinating figure, a film that dares to make pertinent, universally relevant socio-political points with the lightest touch.
