PARCHED

Parched Movie
An extremely twisted plot portraying the harsh truths of society, this movie was directed by Leena Yadav. With Radhika Apte in the lead role, the story revolves around four women belonging to a village from Rajasthan. The story narrates how the women fight against the practice of patriarchy, child marriage, marital rape, dowry, mental and physical abuse. It also questions the so-called masculinity of man in a very realistic way.

These movies became a medium to unravel the uncertainty of women being independent. They have been highly questioned for their dialogues and the bold character of their women. Fortunately, they surely made people think twice about what kind of society we are living in where feminism is mistaken for biased women rights and male dominance has become a bad habit.

‘A strong woman stands for Herself,

A stronger woman stands for her Family,

A Strongest woman stands for her Country.’

Some captured moments cannot be just judged by awards, they stay unsaid, unpicked and unheard

This Meghna Gulzar movie ‘Raazi’ is an epitome recon of surveillance and intelligence. The thriller blends over the flashback history of Indo-Pakistan war in 1971 of a Kashmiri spy married to a Pakistani Army officer. The mirth and bombarded in the movie shakes up the heads of society. The movie is the adaption of ‘ Harinder Sikka’s ‘ novel “Calling Sehmat”. The bravery and the triumph  of this Kashmiri girl is heart-throbbing.

 

The Emotional Wit

raazi-wordhazard
Raazi paradigms of faith and the enshrining spirits of bravery links its wit with the emotional connect. The war pace tears in the eyes of each woman.

 

Kashmir’s Valour

raazi-wordhazard-12
Kashmir, our very own Kashmir, which of late has been unfortunately labelled with unrest and unattached with the rest of the country, can produce acts of valour, as depicted from the trailer of Raazi.

 

The Prodigious Role of Alia

alia-bhatt-in-raazi
The movie has smashed the amazeballs on YouTube and every news scripts. The  phenomenal woman empowerment graced the double role of the golden woman. The mindful cognizance of a ‘spy’ to protect her country to indulge herself in danger is explicitly shown in the appalling role of a ‘Pakistani wife’ who sacrifices her life to protect many lives.

 

The sacrifice for nation

alia-in-raazi
The spirit of patriotism develops from the first cry for its motherland. Such sacrifice for nation is a blessing . ‘Serving the nation comes first until you die’. This proud sentiment leads up the head to the happiness of seventh stage.

 

Some wonders are just astonishing when they stay unsaid. All the spirits and winning doesn’t need the medals, for the highest award and reward is raw and wild patriotism. Yes, it’s just sacrifices which create beauty in heart — In the hearts of the nation — and develops, nurtures nationalism in the hearts of the viewers.

 

For ‘Raazi’ ‘Raazi’ ‘Raazi’!

INSPIRING TRAITS FROM KHALEESI WE WOMEN SHOULD GAIN.

DAENERYS-wordhazard

“You stand in the presence of Daenerys Stormborn of House Targaryen, rightful heir to the Iron Throne, rightful Queen of the Andals and the First Men, Protector of the Seven Kingdoms, the Mother of Dragons, the Khaleesi of the Great Grass Sea, the Unburnt, the Breaker of Chains.”

That’s the introduction to the beautiful Emilia Clarke known as “Khaleesi” in the epic saga we call as Game of thrones. The character she portrayed from the first season was that of a subtle, calm and innocent Princess who is longing to just go back to her home where her ancestors originally lived .

The first ever title she gains is that of Khaleesi when she is  married off to Khal (King) Drogo of the Dothraki clan. She regains herself after the death of his Khal realizing that she is the rightful Targaryen for the Iron Throne and not her brother.

Lets see why we should get inspiration from the Daughter of the Mad King, Daenerys Targaryen.

Sacrifice:

khal-drogo-and-khaleesi-wordhazard
Daenerys never wanted to marry Khal drogo but still sacrified herself to the barbaric and ruthless dothrakis. She did so on her brother, Viserys Targaryen’s command.

Fearless:

horse-eating scene-wordhazard
She followed the Dothraki tradition of eating  a raw heart of a stallion before giving birth to a child. She walked into the fire with her Dragon eggs later gave birth to 3 dragons. This added the titles of the “Unburnt and mother of dragons”.

Kindness:

unsullied-wordhazard
She reached Astapor in Slavers bay and freed all the 800 Unsullied army. She bought all the slaves in the Yunkai city, hereby gaining the title of “Breaker of chains”.

Considerate:

tyrion-wordhazard
Daenerys has always appreciated suggestions given by her close apprentices like Ser Jorah ,Misandei and Daario. And later, she incorporated The Imp, Tyrion Lannister as the Hand of the Queen. She knew when to take the suggestion and when to act like a queen.

Leadership:

leadership-wordhazard
Daenerys led the clan of Dothrakis to travel on sea which they had never experienced. Being an outsider and leading wild Dothrakis, The Unsullied, The second sons and the dragons was a challenge. The confident, strong and independent Khaleesi outgrew the level of expectation every time she decided to do something.

Well! She can’t be praised enough for the character she portrays  so effortlessly and befittingly. The character reminds us that we women are the KHALEESI in our own eyes. Only then the world would recognise our worth.

VALAR MORGHULIS(All men must die)

But then we are not men!
