PINK - Hindi movie review

Can’t a working girl have a drink and dinner with her friends? What about those girls who stay independently, have a career and once in a while indulge in partying with their friends?
Surely, there is a drift towards the thinking of society towards independent minded girls. It is evident in the metros. Yet, a section of the feudal society still labels them as ‘characterless girls’.
Shoojit Sircar’s PINK, a social thriller film depicts the story of three girls who share an apartment in Delhi. They are career minded professionals, the modern age females.
National Award winning director Aniruddha Roy Chowdhury narrates the story of three Delhi-based girls, and a yesteryear’s’ big league lawyer, and how their paths cross. The film also explores the dubious morals of today’s times.

I am ‘little’ dramatic – Varun Dhawan

New Delhi, 17th September 2016:
Varun Dhawan entered to arapturous applause. People are screaming in abandon, the women louder than the men, and for a moment, it becomes evident why there’s so much security standing at the front of the stage. “I can see a lot of schoolchildren in here,” he says as he enters “so clearly I’m in the right place.”

Here is what Varun has to say on his first kiss:
“I’m not going to tell you her name… a gentleman doesn’t kiss and tell. Anyway, I was 13 years old, she was a year younger than me. It was at the back of her building. I don’t know why, but I thought I knew what I was going to be doing. I’d seen Titanic and all. After a few minutes of my fumbling around, she got impatient, caught me, said ‘what are you doing?’ and then just went for it…”

On relationships:
“I don’t think this generation is as ‘fast’ as people say. I mean, the 70’s had their flower-power generation. It’s just a phase that they went thorough, and now we’re going through.”
“Relationships are awesome, I think we need them. There’s lots of kinds; friendship, family… but you have to work on them, invest in your relationships,  in people.”

On his first relationship:
“I was in college at the time… it was the first serious, long term relationship I’d been in. I think it had lasted four months… but then she cheated with me. I think I dealt with it okay; I’m a little dramatic – I’m an actor, after all – so I think I somewhere wanted to experience heartbreak anyway. There are supposed to be nine emotions, and you need to go through all of them to learn.”

Baar Baar Dekho also marks the debut of American screenwriter Sri Rao which made news about this film which is based on an ageing romance spanning 30 odd years.
Jai Verma (Sidharth Malhotra) is a Mathematics Professor in Delhi. Diya (Katrina Kaif) is an artist who is madly in love with this handsome professor. They are about to get married when Jai scoffs at the Hindu priest at the time of their wedding about the institution of marriage.

One of the inspiration is derived from her travel to the villages of the colorful nomadic tribe Banjara and the other to the breathtaking Taj Mahal. Blending these two varied inspirations for two capsule collections was an interesting challenge.

“A tale of Two Travels” is a thoughtful creation that imparts royal individuality of the surreal Taj and gleams in the colourful essence of Banjara.
