About the film: The story of this film revolves around the life of Laila (played by Kalki), a free-spirit tied to a wheel chair because of cerebral palsy. It follows her inner-growth as she explores her desires and comes to the realization that her wants are just as same as everyone else. She faces trouble as she falls in love with a girl named Khanum, causing disagreements and fights between her family and friends.

Why watch this?


The very fact that Indian Filmmakers are venturing into unfamiliar genres and experimenting with concepts for films is a great reason to support this film by watching it.


It is a very sensitive subject, one that we haven't seen in films before. A coming of age story involving a victim of cerebral palsy is put beautifully together in 'Margarita, with a straw'.


Even though you expect serious vibes from cinema dealing with such a sensitive subject, you will be surprised to know that the film has a humour element which makes this worth a watch.


The trailer: 'Margarita with a straw' puts forth a trailer so powerful; it'll hold your attention through every last second. Don't believe us? Watch the trailer now..
