What comes to your mind when you think of Pink?
Pink resembles Love, Romance, Charm, Sweetness, Compassion & Femininity. Within few years of brutal incidents happening towards women all over the world, Pink became the new symbol of Feminism. In a country like India where women are considered a deity, her modesty is still in danger and questionable. Delhi, the capital of India is often referred as the rape capital of India. The city is in news once again, not for any other incident but for a movie this time- PINK.
Famous Bengali and Hindi Director Aniruddha Roy Chowdhury comes out to the audience with a social thriller this time. Pink, starring Amitabh Bachchan, Taapsee Pannu, Kirti Kulhari, Andrea Tariang in the lead roles, addresses the issue of a Modern Women trapped in rigid social concepts. The story revolves around three working ladies who are based in Delhi and got themselves trapped in a wrong situation. Political Pressure, Law and order pressure, and their outrageous attitude landed them in serious trouble and then starts the Courtroom Drama.
Amitabh Bachchan as Lawyer Deepak Sehgal made a dent into universe once again with his acting. Hearing his appeals, commanding voice, and assertive character keeps the flame burning inside audience hearts. Taapsee Pannu questions the existing feudal mindset of our society and is excellent in her role. Pink is the best courtroom drama of Bollywood so far. Though the movie reminded me much of “Damini” directed by Rajkumar Santoshi. To find out the reason behind it, watch the movie yourself.
With all the hype going about Pink, we are sure for one thing- We need more preachy and women-centric films like Mother India, Damini, Lajja, Dor, Queen, Fashion, Mardaani, etcetera, etcetera & etcetera…
