Indian Films Are Not Woman-Friendly

Native american indian films have played a great role in building national spirit. Hindi tracks are now pan Native american indian phenomena and the ballroom dancers of southern India are ‘homely names’. But the themes and underlined text messages emanating from these movies are not encouraging for women. In these love-making and violence packed videos, neither the women are shown in their true perspective nor they get their due share of importance in society. And as cinema is the most powerful medium for cultivating views, the prejudiced attitude has resulted in huge setback in honouring the freedom of women in India. In order to present the modern quality among women, Indian filmmakers have ‘parachuted’ on an concept that the display of dancing girls in napkin-sized clothes is real manifestation of freedom. Were we to demonstrate the elements of emerging freedom, we should show the changes in social attitudes and the challenges women face in today’s changed circumstances. Just about all of the films screen women as subordinate personas. Even the heroin functions as a subplot. Various other sweet-voiced girls are necessary furniture to embellish the structures. Whenever a woman is shown, she is shown satisfying men’s desires and is also portrayed as raw materials for producing and parenting children. A girl presenting her skin-stock, a girl crying for help, or a mother praying before a Goddess: these are the scenes the young boys want to see. The real-self of Indian women hardly matches with these scenes. Films have failed in showing the real woman we see in the homes, offices, and compartments of fast working trains. The way in which our films enjoy sex and omnipresent assault is quite antagonistic to the concept of feminism. The ‘point of view’ of male psychology remains dominant while selecting the scenes and designs of clothes. The age, body features, and glow of girls characters’ skin are picked (or rejected) in the same way. And man has always seen women with telescope of his penis only. This one-sided depiction negates the occurrence of half of the population of India. Abuse: Historically the women have nurtured an inclination to run under the secure umbrella of home on seeing threat perception. Following 9/11 incidents it is observed that in american nations, especially in US, the ladies are more prone to marrying. Females prefer home sitting and child rearing against the outside jobs. Bahubali 2 Worldwide Collection

The occurrence of threat perceptions and the worry of a violent happening anytime cause the fairer sex to adopt seclusion. Fear is mother of strange cultural changes. The Indian motion pictures if viewed frequently put in the feeling of apprehension amidst women. The expression ‘orthodoxy’ has several variations, meaning wise. It relates to observance of the beliefs of older ages, without testifying them under the lenses of reason. Older members impose entire set of their morals onto younger ones. Native american indian cinema, though using super modern techniques to the best advantages, has always approbated the orthodox role for women. The girls characters, even after getting Masters degrees in Scientific research, succumb to observance of the rituals like ‘Karava Chauth’, the fasting for longer life of spouse. The girls, who are shown in the simplest possible outfits until they are married, are refused to have ‘say’ while choosing their life associates. The fogeys, the custodian of traditions, do that job for them. Following getting married these women are mindlessly loaded with the weight of bracelets, ornaments, and conventional clothes. Such a turnaround, while artistically displayed on display screen, thins the morale of the girls who wish to be the captains that is supposed to be to them boats. The filmmakers do all these things for pleasing the male gaze. The individual eyes prefer to see the women observing the rules of pleasing their sexual and cultural likes. The male members do not limit this voyeurism simply to seeing the doctored themes in the cinemas; nevertheless they demand the same observance of codes in homes and on roads, too.
