#Diya the most stupid, dangerous, anti-women movie I have seen in recent times! I wonder to which century director #ALVijay belongs to!
The film is a ‘productized’ campaign against Abortion, shedding crocodile tears for those lives killed in ‘Karu’. Oh! It could have been kalpana chawla…. Do you get it?
#Director_Vijay seems to have capitalized with ‘Brand #Saipallavi’. The film is not only irritable because of its anti-woman / male chauvinistic perspective but also for its making. The director seems to have just put all his efforts in Poster designing with ‘beautiful’ Saipallavi and went back to lay down on a couch watching ‘unborn child’!
If not for content, the director could have taken some care & concern (like the way he cares for ‘lives’) to justify it as a ‘horror/thriller’ movie. I have never seen such a poor Cinematography / graphics in a ‘ghost’ movie. Video games are better!
The hero & heroine are 19 when they had Sex! What’s wrong in aborting a child when it’s not the right time! Why to glorify the ‘purity’ of a woman here by saying that she was not willing to Abort and put the blame on family members and get them killed by a child… that too after 5 years! My gosh… what are we propagating here! The stupidest thing is to get the child to kill the doctor! Mr. Vijay, she is a doctor, first of all there was no logic why she would call their parents, when the two of them were already 19.. I mean major! Upon that u make her say one dialogue and convert her as an evil… The uncle out there says “if it was my daughter I would have killed her”… ain’t Mr. Vijay supporting Honor Killing? The whole movie is supposed to be against ‘killing’ / ‘murder’ but only propagates ‘murder’ in the name of Punishment. How strange? This is what happens when CAPITAL is easily available for ‘commercial manufacturers’.
Abortion is not a problem in this society Mr. Vijay, it is brands like you who have ‘market’ and know how to exploit People’s expectations & liking for someone.
I was having hopes until the end, expecting it to have some twists.. something like split personality / personality disorder etc etc… vijay seems to be showing middle finger to us and I felt like XXXXX!
While we came out of the movie my daughter says, “Mummy towards the end I felt like this movie was made by #DonaldTrump. May be its funded by him. #Prolife my ASS”!
S### Durga (Originally Sexy Durga) is a hardcore political critic movie spoken in common ‘Man’s’ language. I am in awe with the subject and unconventional film making that #SanalKumar Sasidharan chooses. He proves that content outshines form. #SDurga not only stands out for its ‘storyless subject’ but the way it has been filmed. Passion and Political commitment is what it takes to produce such films.
I remember the poem – road not taken! But the road that Sanal Kumar takes us is the same road that we travel every second, every minute, however not been ‘repaired’. To escape from this road, bypass roads have been created or the dents have been justified, ‘Tips’ have been offered by ‘virtuous’ people for effective maintenance of the ‘road’ rather than making it accessible for everyone. Thus it becomes a road not taken – path being consciously ignored for the benefit of Oppressors.
Tons of thanks to #SanalKumarSasidharan and #SDurga team for making a ‘propaganda film’ without ‘cinematizing’ it! Propaganda becomes a taboo in films. Am glad that you did it, probably making it a ‘new genre’, atleast in my understanding!
This form is definitely new and inspiring. It has opened newer hopes for Political Activists to speak their heart out in the so called ‘Entertainment’ Medium. Why would someone call this an alternate film? Is the pathetic condition of Woman (or any gender) in society an alternate problem in this society? Aren’t these ‘masala’ films an alternate and deviation from the ‘reality’? We should be terming them as ‘hyper reality’ movies… I guess.
I am not going to narrate the story, because it has to be watched and experienced. However, as Sanal himself has mentioned in his interview, the festival intercut and the end, rather endless end attempts to spit on the hypocrisy of this society.
This Patriarchal society is not only a threat to women but also Men, Couples, Children and every damn life on this planet. Myself being a victim of moral policing when my partner was subjected to assault on road for holding hands and walking can write pages and pages on how fearful it is to live in this ‘dark society’, but what is the use unless and until it is being voiced at large scale.
S###Durga struggles to be that voice and it is shameful as always that such voices are suppressed. Let’s stop calling such films an alternate film and bring it to mainstream.
Dear comrade Sanal Kumar Sasidharan, please do make many such movies and politicize this ‘numb’ society in your own way and we shall be with you.
P.S. Infact I had gone alone to the movie and there was one woman along with a man. So, I was the only woman alone watching this movie amidst about 7 or 8 people in PVR. I had to cross so many male gazes while I went alone into the mall, when I came out to take a cab, inside the cab! I kept thanking Sanal 🙂
மகள் காதல் திருமணம் செய்ததால் சமூக நெருக்கடியினாலோ அல்லது கலாச்சார மதிப்பீட்டின் காரணமாகவோ தவறான புரிதலின் அடிப்படையில் ஒரு குடும்பம் தற்கொலை செய்து கொண்டுள்ளது. இது மிகவும் வேதனைக்குறிய விஷயமே.
இந்த கொடுமை நடந்ததற்கு நாம் அந்தப் பென்ணையோ அல்லது அந்தக் குடும்பத்தையோ குறை சொல்வதை விட காதல் திருமணத்திற்கு எதிராக இருக்கும் கலாச்சார மதிப்பீடுகள், சாதீய மதிப்பீடுகளைத்தான் களைய வேண்டியிருக்கிறது.
ஆனால் இச்சம்பவத்தை ஒட்டி அந்தப் பெண்ணுக்கு திருமணம் செய்து வைத்த உறவினரை காவல்துறை கைது செய்திருப்பது கண்டனத்திற்குரியது. அதுவும் மன உளைச்சல் ஏற்படுத்தி தற்கொலைக்கு தூண்டியதாக வழக்கு பதிவு செய்யப்பட்டுள்ளது. இது அநீதி.
தங்களுக்கு சிக்கல் வாராத வகையிலும், வயது காரணங்களால் (major) வழக்கு தள்ளுபடியாகமலும் இருக்க இது ஒரு புது உத்தியாக இருக்கிறது. தற்கொலைக்கு தூண்டுதல் என்பது ஒரு வலுவான வழக்காகும்.
இதன் மூலம் காதலர்களுக்கு ஆதரவற்ற சூழலையும், காதலர்களுக்கு உதவி புரிபவர்களை அச்சுறுத்துவதுமான முயற்சி இது.
ஒருவேளை இக்காதலர்கள் காவல்துறையில் தஞ்சமடைந்து, காவல்துறையினர் திருமணம் செய்து வைத்து இப்படி நடந்திருந்தால், காவல்துறையினரை இப்படி கைது செய்திருப்பார்களா?
என்னவிதமான அடக்குமுறை இது?
