“My wife, she was born to make laddus”
Watched the movie because for once, when an Indian husband is being disrespectful in an Indian movie – he is shown as being disrespectful.
We see characters like Shashi (Sridevi) in Indian movies and TV serials all the time, but we always see them grateful and delighted to be permitted to serve hot coffee to family members while their own coffee goes cold (It’s just a cup of coffee, isn’t it?)
For once a good Indian woman in a feel good Indian movie, is not shown delighted-to-serve-and-obey, she expects to be treated with respect. Like real women, Shashi questions and resents and feels.
“Mard khana banaye to kala hai, aurat banaye to uska farz hai.” (Translatation: When a man cooks, it’s art; when a woman cooks it’s her duty.”)
I think Gauri Shinde manages to ask some tactful questions without offending the traditional Indian viewer.
A must watch.
