A lot of ruckus has been created in social media about the misogyny of the movie Kabir Singh. While we don’t advocate violence in any relationship, we have to admit that in most relations partners tend to be aggressive with each other when angry. The beginning half an hour of the movie is difficult to digest for any self respecting woman. I agree, but is this the first movie like this
1. Rowdy Rathore
Akshay Kumar staring at the navel of the heroine doesn’t look misogynistic or what.
2. Gully boy
Alia didn’t care if Ranveer lied with Kalki but she was so sex deprived that she just wanted to make love to him. Let fidelity go to hell! This is the same girl who smashed a beer bottle on the head of another girl just because she was trying to be close to her boyfriend. Well that wasn’t violence it seems.
Well, it’s not possible to point out a single scene as ninety percent of the movie was misogynistic. This is the remake I’m talking about. Not the nineties movie.
Varun Dhawan banging a woman forcefully in the name of ‘Badla’. Well, she is a prostitute. What self respect does she have? Isn’t that so?
Salaman Khan is head over heels in love with his wife. But that doesn’t justify his dialogue ” Pyar se de rahe Hain, varna thapad marke bhi de sakta Hoon” . Not giving a thappad was a favour! So much for love.
6. Happy New year
How shah rukh Khan’s character treats Deepika’s character!
These are a few names. 90 percentage of the Bollywood movies are indeed mysogynistic. Arrogant heroine falling in love with the hero after being slapped by him was a formula that was overused to the peak. Leave the old movies even now there are sexist jokes that have been laughed upon; Rape jokes that have been ignored. And why this hullabaloo about Kabir Singh.
When people can celebrate Christian Grey, why not Kabir Singh or Arjun Reddy? Because according to me Christian Grey is the most regressive, misogynistic and sexist character I have come across till date.
So this is not about sexism or misogyny. It is pure discrimination. If Kabir Singh’s character misleads the youth, so do other movies. Gully boy will make the girls break bottles on each other. Isn’t that so?
When will the so called media and foolish laymen who follow them start calling out the big star movies for sexism, racism, nepotism and narcissism.
When Salman Khan dances to “Baby ko base pasand Hain” why do we dance with the tunes instead of calling out the extremely sexist song.
Recently I heard a song Psycho Sayyan. SERIOUSLY! A SONG ON PSYCHOLOGICAL ISSUES and nobody protested. Wow!
