“Arts le kar kya karoge?” is something that our society has always taunted to those who want to opt for Humanities. People think it’s a stream for those who are failures. Have you gone through the same? Watch this movie and I am sure you will be able to relate yourself with Rohan. The movie will make you feel that the arts stream is equally respectable like any other stream.
Ek Main Aur Ekk Tu
“Ek ladka aur ek ladki kabhi dost nahi ho sakte.” Really? This movie will certainly make you believe that sometimes it’s completely OK to be just friends and not give any particular tag to the bond a girl and boy shares.
Infertility of a man or a woman has always been looked down upon by the society. But there is always a solution to everything. One of it is that of contacting a clinic where men donate sperms. But even this is an awful thing to do as seen by some people. Watch this film which will crack all your standardized notions of this noble idea of being a sperm donor.
4) ‘OMG - Oh My God!’ (2012)
This movie will undoubtedly fuse all the superstitions that you have in mind. The purpose of this film is to change the way one perceives the concept of God. The movie will make you re-think all the ways in which you worship. Though it doesn’t make you believe that there is no God. It just gives one a better understanding of this divinity.
5) ‘Table No. 21’ (2013)
Bringing out the consequences of ragging, the movie will leave you in astonishment towards the end. You never know which deed of your past will make you pay in your future. The film warns you to not to do anything that you will regret later.
This movie showcases the very basic mentality of a majority of Indians. But when Rani breaks all the rules and decides to go alone on her honeymoon, that’s when she knows she is empowered. She explains that how in life it’s important for a girl to live for herself first. Not every girl turns out to be a ‘bechari’ if her fiancé calls off their marriage. Rani is surely an inspiration to all the girls.
Dil Dhadakne Do
“Money brings happiness.” Watch this movie and break this stereotype and know that even in high-class families there are problems. This film explains how a dysfunctional family gets back together and realises that it’s the four of them who are always going to be there for each other and that the real happiness lies in being together.
Angry Indian Goddesses
Lesbian relationships, college friendships, eve teasing, rape- the movie covers it all. Undoubtedly, almost every ‘Angry Indian Goddess’ will be able to relate to at least one of the incidents that is highlighted in the movie. Not only exposing the issues but the movie also breaks the monotony of having a ‘hero!’ The first all-out female buddy film will make you think a little more on every brutality that a girl experiences in her lifetime.
Ki And Ka
This movie breaks all the conventional thoughts of a ‘pati-vrata patni’ and ‘ghar chalane wala pati.’ The film explores a new view of changing roles where the male is the house-husband and the female is the bread earner of the family. The film sets an example on how one shouldn’t think about ‘log kya kahenge’ but should just do what they want to.
With a theme of ‘No means No!” the movie displays all the feminist ideas and interrogates everything that our society is bound to believe. The film punctures all the patriarchal thoughts and provides the masses with a new set of ideas.
