What is your brown number? is a satirical film about discrimination in India based on skin colour. A concept of ‘brown number’ has been introduced. Every person is born with a respective brown number that corresponds to the shade of their skin. The darker the shade, the higher the brown number and lower the worth. The film is a montage of people’s reactions to brown number. These reactions are all based on how people react to skin colour in real life. The film has been treated in an exaggerated and sarcastic manner in order to show the vanity of skin colour.
