Media | We Are Lady Parts series two review – brilliant punk TV that’ll leave you in tears | Amznusa.com

It’s brimming with confidence, bursting with enthusiasm and totally anarchic. What other show could go from quoting Marxist Pakistani poets to covering nu-metallers Hoobastank?

In the three years since this all-female, all-Muslim punk-band sitcom first aired, We Are Lady Parts has very much lived up to the creative, reproductive connotations of that title. Writer-director Nida Manzoor has further spawned a well-received debut feature, the kung fu coming-of-ager Polite Society, and star Anjana Vasan’s fruitful career has produced the Bafta-winning Black Mirror episode Demon ’79, an Olivier-winning stage turn opposite Paul Mescal in A Streetcar Named Desire, and a starring role in Brit-com flick, Wicked Little Letters. These are busy women, but they’ve managed to get the band back together anyway, and Lady Parts are once more ready to rock your living room.

We find them in the tour van, rounding off “a magical summer of gigs” and planning to “lay down our legacy” by recording an album with legendary producer, Dirty Mahmood (Anil Desai). First, though, they’ve got to find the money for studio time and that won’t be easy, with band manager Momtaz (Lucie Shorthouse) struggling to book paying gigs and punk-purist Saira (Sarah Kameela Impey) determined not to sell out.
