It is a 2016 Indian courtroom drama film directed by Aniruddha Roy, written by Ritesh Shah and produced by Shoojit Sircar and Rashmi Sharma.imageimagePink is about the patriarchal mindset of Indian people who believe that women shouldn’t do the things the boys in the family still get away with doing. They label those females who make more or less the same choices as ‘independent’ men do as “promiscuous”, “immoral” or “characterless.”

It also exhibits how people characterize women on the basis of the clothes they wear, how much they smile at men, whether they drink or not and of course, their sexual history.

It even represents how people are highly incapable of understanding Indian women the moment they do not fit into the feudal expectations set upon them. This movie tries to break open the Indian brain and fit into it basic concepts of human dignity, respect and honour for women in India.

The movie also conveys a very strong message that when a woman says no, it means a NO.

You’d really have to be cold, cynical and possibly living in denial if you aren’t deeply affected by this movie.

Pink isn’t an easy watch. However, Amitabh Bachchan’s sublime performance will guide you through :’). He never disappoints.

Pink isn’t just an important film but also excellently made.¬†By the end of the movie you’ll be welling up with tears of contentment especially after listening to these beautiful lines by Mr. Bachchan :

‘Tu khud ki khoj mein¬†nikal,
Tu kis liye hataash hai,
Tu Chal tere wajood ki samay ko bhi talaash hai.
Jo tujhse lipti bediya,
samaj naa unko vastraa tu,
Yeh bediya pighaal¬†kar bana¬†le unko shastra¬†Tu’.

Gave me goosebumps literally!
