This girl’s take on ‘Veere di wedding’ sending wrong message about women empowerment is different. DO you Agree?
‘Veere di wedding’ a movie marketed on the base of Women empowerment. With the internet filling up women empowerment and feminist messages and quotes, debates, arguments etc, who better than a women herself to comment on the movie. Read her thoughts.
“Veere di wedding” movie is based on four girls who are best friends.
Each girl has different family background with different issues.
When I saw the trailer of this movie, I assumed that this movie is going to show how bravely girls solve their problems or how beautifully independent these women are.
This movie is going to deliver some good message on women empowerment with generous dose of entertainment.
Sadly, this movie didn’t do any justice, neither in terms of good message nor in terms of entertainment.
According to this movie, if a woman drinks till she passes out, wakes up in strangers house, swear in coarse Hindi, talk freely about sex and orgasms, then the woman is empowered.
Apart from Avni (Sonam kapoor), none of these girls have any career. They happily spend their parents or husband’s hard earned money on boozing, instead of extending their help in any of their family matters. Wow!!
There is a scene where Sakshi’s (Swara Bhaskar’s character) husband asks her to find a job for herself, In that scene she simply shrug off by saying that if I am going to do a job then who will cook for you.
Really Sakshi? You meant to say a woman who goes for work can’t do housechores. No dear! Let me burst your bubble. There are million people (men and women both) in the world who earn and cook the food both.
So don’t give a wrong message.
And one thing I don’t understand in latest movies like Badrinath ki dulhaniya, Shadi me zarur aana and now Veere di wedding, that first a girl says yes formarriage then suddenly she says no on the wedding day.
Is it cool? No I don’t think so. If girls have emotions then boys do too. Take your time in saying yes or no for marriage but do not change your decision on the wedding day. This not only creates embarrassment but also it hurts sentiments too. Marriage is not a joke.
There is so much more to being a modern-day independent woman. This movie would have you believe that marriage is stupid, friendship is the only saving grace and cigarettes are stress-busters. We all may have believed that, perhaps in college, but we outgrew it all in teenage.
