Yesterday after watching Rakhee; Im in two moods now.
One, for the reason that finally mainstream directors are seriously tackling the issue of women inequality in our society. Some of the points raised in the movie are really good.
Secondly, though for the very simple solution that is being taken to tackle the problem : Capital punishment a.l.a Tit For Tat. Shankar took to the same solution for his two movies dealing with tackling corruption Indian/Bharateeyudu & Anniyan/Aparitichitudu. Even RDB took the same path. Fear of death as a simple solution to regulate/retaliate human ills.
Whats more intriguing though is the audience is pumped up by this gratuitious violence and the notion of violence as an answer to the problems. In each of the movies though, the society/common people and consequently the audience believe that they are always the victims and the system is a perperator and everyone part of the system need to eliminated. Every ill of the society is simply attributed to corruption of the system.
The mantra is simple ‘Eliminate the components of this system; eliminate corruption.’
- Is the nature of todays India just because of corruption? That is all that is there to the ills of India today? Just look at the movie Anniyan to understand how a complex problem of why India could not develop as rapidly as Korea or Singapore or other better developed Asian countries is all attributed to Corruption. I dont think not many in the audience think any different.
- Not even one film seems to show that the system actually comprises of the audience too. If the system has failed, the society has failed too. Or actually, the system fails because the society failed.
There is a logical flaw… but …
