Now, this seems to be a catchy one. “Ki & Ka”, which in Hindi, it means, “Hers & His” denoting the only 2 genders that human civilization recognizes with dignity and has accorded well-grounded roles to the two genders. And since this movie appears to challenge it, it sounds fun.
“Now she’s your responsibility” – many a men would be able to relate to this statement when it is heaped on to a man. Something similar happens to Kabir Mehra (Ranveer Singh) as he listens to this statement, in the movie “Dil Dhadakne Do” directed by Zoya Akhtar under the banner of Excel Entertainment owned by Farhan Akhtar and Ritesh Sidhwani.
Mostly every romantic movie ends with a happy ending – “Boy and girl get married to each and presumably live happily ever after”. Tanu Weds Manu Returns (TWMR) is an exception to this hot-and-spicy-served-on-a-platter-sizzler brigade as it begins with marriage and shows the true picture marriages go through as the second scene of the movie is a mediation session between the couple “Tanu and Manu” trying to “reconcile” their irreconcilable differences as husband and wife after 4 years of marriage.
Feminism teaches us to stand up against injustices against women – at least theoretically! With constant emphasis to the adage that it is a male dominated patriarchal society; feminists have successfully convinced that every problem in the society can be resolved through a gynocentric prism.
Criminals are bad. Gunday (hooligans) are bad. They must be hated, despised, ostracized and must be punished. But how do you harbor such feelings towards poor innocent adolescent boys who haven’t still stepped into their teens and are forced into the world of crime stung by poverty and hunger. Do you call them dreaded criminals? Do you arrest them? Do you punish them?
Queen is a Bollywood movie starring Kangana Ranaut who plays a pivotal role in the movie. As one progresses through the movie, there is a transmigration of opinions from whether the movie is a feminist movie or one that proposes individualistic and independent mindset.
Bewakoofiyan is a Hindi movie starring Ayushmaan Khurana, Sonam Kapoor and Rishi Kapoor in lead roles and the story revolves around the struggles of Ayushmaan and Sonam to marry each other as they are in love with each other and the hurdles created by Sonam’s dad in between.
A movie works best when it is not only unpredictable but also attempts to break stereotypes. Highway, starring Randeep Hooda and Alia Bhatt, directed by Imtiaz Ali of Jab We Met fame, is one such movie with unconventional ending and seeks to attempt to break stereotypes at every possible instance barring a few standard social mindsets – a liberty, an experimental person like Imtiaz deserves.
ऐसे वैसे नहीं है, औरतों कि इज़ज़त करते हैं (I am not just like that, I respect women). When you hear this dialogue coming from a man who does not respect and kills humans (males) just like that and then utters the same dialogue that he respects a particular human (female) because she is a female, then you know there is something terribly and deeply wrong in the societal setup.
Go watch this movie for sure if slow movies do not bore you out. The movie has a retro look of the 50s as the story is set in the post-independence era with the economic and power tussle going between the Indian Govt. and the Zamindars.
The plot is that of a Zamindar who stays with his daughter Paakhi and the story begins with the entry of Varun (the protagonist) who comes to their bungalow for doing some excavation in the nearby area.
