And by the way, Kahani fails the Bechdel Test miserably. Its one woman against the evil world, the demon slayer. Its the same old over glorification of women as Goddess which is a problem, because then you expect a certain kind of behaviour from Goddess. You set high standards for her and if she falls, she deserves to be punished. All we need is let women be equal human as men, no better or worse.


When I first saw the trailers of Kai Po Che I wrote this on my FB -

Kai Po Che - Yet another story of young free and restless males. Where are the young and restless women living life on the edge, please? Asking this to both Bollywood and Hollywood.

Dil Chahta Hai, Zindagi Na Mile Gi Dobara, Pineapple Express, Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas - All great films, but how would it be if any of the leading protagonist was a woman. Women don't feel like taking the highway all of a sudden? They don't get stoned and get stupid and funny and adventurous? Where are those stories? Oh wait, last time two women did that they end up dying. Their trouble started because some men wanted to rape them, some shoot out followed and cops chased them to death. They were Thelma and Louise! what was the damn message? Women stay indoors.

Gayatri Shenoy

Truly feel a deep void in cinema for woman centric performances like Mirch Masala and Bhumika, But hope lives on... with Vidya Balan in Kahaani, Sridevi last year with English Vinglish. These movies were inspiring, a breath of fresh air...
