Underreckoning of Women(Movie Review : Pink)

It has been a long time that I have watched any movie. It is also because I am always less interested in watching movies for hours sitting at a single place..that is not my cup of coffee for sure. I have a tendency to watch a single movie again and again until I mug up all the dialogues that too with the same way of dialogue delivery(If I love it). Gangs of Wasseypur is one of the examples. I can immitate every single guy’s dialogues from this movie from both the parts.


But since it was my holiday today from the office I thought of watching a couple of good movies. So in the morning I watched a few trailers of Indian movies I watched to watch such as Befikre, Pink, and Udta Punjab etc. I brought Pink and Udta Punjab to watch, and I am just done with the Pink.
It is an amazing movie I have watched in a while. Usually, I don’t write anything regarding movies or its review, but this movie has a lot to say and I really want to contribute some of the points I liked about the movie which ultimately affects our today’s culture.

Pink – September 16, 2016

Directed by– Shoojit Sircar

Leads– Amitabh Bacchan, Tapsi Pannu..



My Experience with “Pink”

The story revolves around three independent women, Minal, Andrea, and Falak who lives in the capital of India, Delhi. One night they went to a rock concert where they met a few guys and became friends and later on accepted the invitation for dinner. But those guys showed their real intentions after they reached their resort. One of the guys Rajveer was politically well-connected hence, he thought of doing anything with these girls and in return, these girls will not utter a single word. But everything started changing when Minal get assaulted by Rajveer and out of anger she burst a bottle of liquor near Rajveer’s eye and head. And then the courtroom story revolves in order to get the justice to women.

The movie clearly shows how the people of this male dominated society judge women on the basis of how they behave because of their clothes, choices of doing what they want, desires to achieve, and actions.

I personally respect the fact that-

If a girl is smiling at you, no matter even without a reason, and tries to be friendly with you, it does not at all mean that she is trying to flirt or giving a guy any kind of hint to come and fuck me. It shows that yes, she too has a liberty to do whatever the hell she wants to do. That maybe the way she has been brought up. Just accept it, without getting judgmental.

If a girl wears short skirts, rugged jeans, exposing clothes that do not mean she is a characterless girl. It simply means that she just likes to wear those clothes. As simple as that.

And if she is not virgin, it is her way to squandering her virginity with whomsoever, guy, she likes. There is no question of pointing out her character. By losing virginity does not mean every other guy’s gotta license to touch her or assault her without her consent.

The thing is very clear if a girl says no, it simply means NO. Why the hell do people (especially male) make it so complicated and later on try to take the revenge for a fucking ego.

Feudal Mindset of Indian Psych Male

Since I have recently been to Delhi, I know how many north east girls stay there to pursue their dreams, to be someone they want to be, to achieve their goals. But they feel neglected by most of the people from other parts of India. Not many people can tell you the difference between Mizoram, Tripura, Arunachal, Sikkim and much more from the east side, we people create a derogatory cheap comment by calling them Nepalis, Chinese and what not. Most of the times they are also referred as sex workers, this should not at all acceptable.

An Ideal Indian girl is judged –

> If she exposes her cleavage by the kind of dresses she wears. She doesn’t know that you will talk about her boobs and call her a slut on her back.

> If she drinks, because it shows she has no moral values.

> If she laughs with you, because she thinks you will not judge her for being herself.

> If she touches you, because she doesn’t know it can turn you on and you will think she’s giving a hint to get a room.

> If she had a sexual relationship with few guys earlier, you will also think that she will also invite you to fuck her.

And there are millions of more reasons I can quote here, but this is a never ending process. It has been an egotistical society for thousands of years but it is a high time to change our mindset.

She might booze, she might party hard, she might have had sexual relationships too, but if she says no, it clearly means “NO”.

Respect WOMEN. Respect Humanity.

She may drink, she may party, she may have had relationships,she may even be married, but if she says “NO”, it means “NO”.

    1. Hi kamal!
      Now I am addicted to your comments, whenever I post something I thought of your lovely views on the post beforehand. 🙂

      Exactly! The very first step has to be taken is to accept them as they are without assuming anything. She might completely be the opposite person. 🙂

    1. Hi Tanya!
      Please do watch this movie, it doesn’t contain any masala in the movie but it does have a lifetime learning to respect women.

      I am glad you loved the post. Please do let me know once you watch the movie. 🙂

    1. That is the point, peoplw in our society judge women on the tic of clock, the kind of behaviour she has with people, as described in the movie.

      It is a high time to understand the importance of broad minded mindset.
      I am elated to know that you are agree on the same. 🙂

  3. Sumit, I highly appreciate how judiciously you have talked about such effeminate issues which usually people don’t bother to mind their attention. In our highly chauvinistic and patriarchal society, women are judged on each and every little part of their lives; from the kind of clothes they wear to the no. of male friends they have. How pathetic. If a guy is smoking, he is considered cool but if a girl is smoking, she is considered to be characterless or what, I really don’t get this disparity in the mindsets of people. I mean, eventually, smoking is injurious for both, either it be boy or a girl. But this is what our society acts in each and every issue, As you said, our society has been so egotistical, thus it’s a never ending process from millions of years. We girls have equal right to wear the clothes we like, talk with anyone, roam around, party hard, and have sex with someone we want. We have also gotta life and we’ll live it in our own ways. Society has no right to point us on our personal choices. People has been so habitual of judging girls that they can’t even stand the superiority of girls in our country. Yes, such people exist. If your girl is superior to you, you’d be bullied by other people of being inferior. This nasty mentality has to be effaced. It’s time to change. I hope your valuable post reaches to such filthy people and they learn something and make this world a better place for girls. Kudos to you for writing this post. You are a great gentleman with a true heart. 🙂

    1. Well recieved and well analysed Shreya! Can’t agree more with your words. But unfortunately, these valuable words, nor would message of the entire movie would reach to those kind of scoundrels. Because they are like ‘kutte ki dum.’ We can only hope that togather, we as a society, would bring this change in the mindset.

  4. As I’ve always said Sumit, lucky would be the girl who gets to be with you. 🙂
    Having said that, I kinda didn’t quite appreciate the phrase “squandering her virginity”. I think some other word would have expressed it better. I mean I do get what you were trying to say and I know the intentions were good (otherwise this post wouldn’t have been possible), but just that it could’ve been expressed more judiciously. 🙂

    1. And the time arrived now, whe I gotta read Ankita’s view on the post. As I have been telling you that you always play the role of counterparty on my posts, and trust me I feel so good when I saw you commented on the blog itself then replying or debating on personal WhatsApp chats. :)’

      Haahaha! You almost make me speechless, by saying such beautiful words.

      And yes, again you only have problem with the words I have chosen na 😉

      1. Arey don’t demonise me by saying that I ALWAYS play the counterparty. That’s not true. 😦
        And I commented here coz I think I promised you last time that I will, instead of doing that on WhatsApp. 🙂 Ek baar jo maine commitment kar di fit toh main apne aap ki bhi nahi sunti. 😉 😛
        And yes, I only had an issue with the word, nothing else.
        You are a sweetheart when it comes to writing about girls you know and no way I’ll have problem with that!😘

      1. Yes…we all are brought to this world by a woman..and many of us have sisters too..a woman is strong enough to bear the pain and convert in into a beautiful smile on her face ever since when we form inside her womb..and to bear even more during the time or delivering us and turn it into an even more beautiful smile when she sees us..it is quite ridiculous to misjudge a woman, like saying she i a slut because she dresses like this or that..we should appreciate and accept her for what she is..

      2. But that is the only issue nah Chithra. Let me tell you a real time example, as I have been placed in a company a month ago. We were a batch of 24 people, and everyone was from different city almost. A girl who was from the different city tried to be very gentle with each and everyone, and with that I became her good friend.

        But sooner she was judged by her nature that this girl is very close with every guy, she doesn’t have any self-respect.

        That girl came to me and she literally cried in front of me, and also felt regret for being good with all the guys. At the end of the day, everyone judged her and left her alone. Today that girl does not talk to anyone other than me. I feel very bad for that, I am happy that I am not one of them. But I wish I could change the perception of other people too.

      3. I know many girls misjudged in the same way that girl was happened to be, as you mentioned..and i am one among those girls too..have experienced the same in my life when i tried to mingle the same good way with everyone..i have been good to them, havent hurt anybody, as far as i know, only i have got hurt the same as that girl got..then i confined myself and drew a boundary line like you said what at last she did..

    1. The society has been warned for millions of times, still situations are the same in order to change anything.

      I feel so bad at times, I wish I could do something against it, but then I remind myself that we live in India.

      1. Sumit, I guess it’s not about being in India. Anywhere in this world, if we want to bring a change, we’ve to raise our voice against it. One voice can give hope and courage to many others.
        We are the future of India, we have to make India the way we have always wanted it to be. Lesser of hypocrite, more of liberated.😑
        More power to us.😼

        I guess, writing is one of the powerful sources we have since zillions of decades, by which we connect with people with same mindset. I am glad that I chose to write this post, I am glad you highlighted your precious point of view, Aditi. 🙂

  6. Repeated foreign invasions on Indian land and women that forced the society to keep the woman behind the doors. And it resulted into society ending up in a dark age. It is a shame that girls are not given education where its a ‘Goddess’ of knowledge (Saraswati) who is worshipped and not God. The nation is trying to be on the equal ground with first world countries when it comes to finance, defence, technology, lifestyle and so forth; but when it comes to changing the mindset, it fails pathetically. There is no end to pointing out major and minor incidents where such filthy mindsets do harm. But a movie especially focussing on this issue is a welcoming initiative of making this fact underlined in bold that ‘No means No.’ But over the years many social issues are dealt in many movies all the while situation remaining the same. What should be done is that we, as a society, men and women together should stop making such judgements and start teaching right things to our children.

    1. It is a bitter truth that a woman in her own country cannot think of going out aftee 9 or 10 PM. There is always a fear of her own people if not others. She cannot trust men easily, even if she does she would be considered as a characterless woman’s tag because according to the male-dominated society, women should always stand behind the men. She is considered as a sex object no matter how good that woman might think of a guy.

      There are a lot of changes required in the society, still there is no way to solve them. Still, we can hope for the change. One man or woman cannot change the world, but they can at least their own world’s.
