Shan Khan's new film Honor could just as well be called Shame, for that is what the insistence of this horrendous code of ethics releases. In this case, it is the honor of killing a daughter to save family respect.
Honor by definition is a tricky notion. The maid of honor, the best friend of a bride is a distinction. But historically, the idea infuses all sorts of masculine concepts of group pride, respect and often for women, prohibition.
