Pink – The Revolution


Only thing we know of the movie, through its trailers, is about a court case and Amitabh Bachchan as a lawyer asking candid questions, loud and clear, about sex and assessing characters of girls, and asking about virginity and how many times she has sex, something never seen on the Indian screens before.

But now times have changed, these girls want to answer these questions loud and clear. They are not inhibited about themselves, their lifestyle, their clothes, work or sexuality.

And the entry scene is shot in slow motion, to allow the fans to soak in as much as they want of their super hero. And you just can’t stop but join the party and clap and whistle, welcoming Rajni Sir.

Sairat is the love story of Prashant Kamble (Parshya) and Archana Patil (Aarchi). Parshya is the local hero of the village Bittergaon, winning matches for the home team, a la Dhoni style. But is from the low caste and could only dream of having a girl like Archie in his life. Archie is the daughter of the local landlord/ politician/ gang master and from a higher caste. She is bold, brave, dominating, smart and sairaat (wild and free) and has the entire village boys and girls dancing to her tunes.
