I have searched the real meaning of colour Pink, from where this word derived, how people correlates this word with feminism.
According to surveys, people associate Pink colour with charmness, politeness, sensitiveness, tenderness, sweetness, childhoodness, and most people associate these qualities with women’s character, and hence this Pink stands for feminism.

After my hectic night duty in hospital I just decided to go for a movie, and discovered the only movie in theatres with the big name is PINK.

The movie which I started watching casually but soon that casualness is replaced by my total focus on Amitabh Bachchan’s expressions and dialogues, and I was inspired so much that in interval I had written a small blog which raises questions about our attitudes towards female gender ( which you can read here )

Till the end I had decided to give hype to this awesome film so that the good message can be spread amongst the people.

Summary :

Movie starts with the noise of laughing individuals chit chatting with each other, than silense prevails, than noise of breaking of glass, and than the film starts with the 3 boys sitting in a car and among them one boy was having some bleeding around the left eye, while the second scene consists of three girls sitting in a taxi with concern faces.

The director made the first half little bit confusing but interested as the public were scratching their mind as what might had happened.

The film opens somewhat later and the situation was that 3 girls and 3 boys were having dinner with each other, and one of the girl Taapsee Pannu, breaks the beer bottle onto the one of the boy’s head and boy’s side had taken this case to the court by raising the matter as “assault” on them by the girls.

Than here comes the entry of superstar Amitabh Bachchan as a ‘retired lawyer’, who himself decided to fight this case for the girls and from this point the film becomes very interesting.

How this case was framed, how the boy’s side framed girls as prostitutes (by giving reasons like girls were talking to them with a smile, ready to go for a lunch, etc etc), how the police helps the boys as they were from the political family, how girls were at point of breakdown after seeing that the whole society was against them and finally how Amitabh Bachchan with their acting and dialogue helps the girls to win this case…

For all the answers of these “how”, you have to watch this film in theatre, as it would be worth for your money..

My Lessons from this film :

  1. If a girl greets you with a smile, it does not mean that she is trying to impress you.
  2. If a girl is having a drink with you, it does not mean that she is from a bad family.
  3. If a girl comes late at night, it does not mean that she is characterless.
  4. If a girl touches you, it does not mean that she is giving you indication, it might a normal gesture of friendship.
  5. And if a She is saying “NO” to something, than it means NO, No means No, nothing else, it is a complete word in itself, it does not require any explanation.

My Rating : 5/5 : Must Watch.

Special Clappings for director Shoojit Sircar.

  1. Thank you for the review Dr Anshul. I was literally confused whether to watch this film or not based on its trailer. But now I will.

    It is indeed important to change the way people think. I live in a city where I feel free to breath regarding issues mentioned. But at the moment I am in a tiny village like town in Rajasthan and God, don’t ask me how suffocated I feel. The misconceptions people have! Disgusting! Men don’t even consider women to be good enough to talk. And if a woman talk, it is understood otherwise.

    Just the other day a lady professor felt so afraid to be seen at 10pm from my guesthouse to her quarter wondering what people will think she was doing at night! And I thought, oh come on, gimme a break!! Such mentality!

    And by the regarding my exercise update I am daily walking to and fro from guest house to a university 4 times. Which is quite a walk. Technically I am not using any sort of vehicle to roam around anywhere. So there! I’m continuing my regular walk!


  2. To say that this is film is riveting is an understatement. The director goes beyond courtroom dramatics to deliver a simple story that’s both easily relatable and engrossing. Compellingly portrayed on screen, the story is written with relevance to today’s society. The feminism which occurs in court has been given a rare dynamic with convincing actors and powerful dialogue. With the message of this film, the makers succeed at reminding us that cinema does have the power to make a difference.
