Stereo-typically India is land of male dominated society. Out of 29 state there are only few state in which women are live with our in-dependency and with their our social status other wise they suffer from various type of violence, old, age-ridiculed traditions like forced child marriages and other social issues like financial difficulties, spousal and familial rape, and physically and emotionally abusive alcoholic husbands.
On the surface, Leena Yadav’s film Parched, which is produced by Ajay devgn, seems to be a heart-wrenching film about rural women in Rajasthan and the entrenched misogyny in their lives.
The 2-odd minute trailer has enough instances to make you feel horrible for the four women around whom the story of Parched is based.
However, if you dig deep enough, Parched is about breaking free; from shackles, stereotypes, societal obligations and your own inner turmoil.This can best be seen in the performance by Radhika Apte and Surveen Chawla. Apte plays a humble nature woman who is routinely abused and raped by her violent husband. Chawla plays a prostitute in an area that is hell bent on making the most out of her body.
The film deals with serious issues of stifling patriarchy, and can really bog you down if you think about the condition of rural women as shown in the film.
“Films like Parched’ don’t get that much admiration if they are only released in theatre. Film festivals are important to promote and earn appreciation”
