The Silk… Ooo La La…!!!

It is the heights of misunderstanding the adjective. Some have understood that the word ‘Dirty’ refers to the picture itself whereas some have felt it refers to the dirtiness of the professional skin-show. I strongly believe both are unfortunately wrong. Unfortunate, because their understanding has masked their eyes and heart in turn, from appreciating the guts of the director and of course the artist as Silk, Vidya Balan.

When something is shown out there, at least some portion of it must have been true! Or otherwise, most of it is true to the point and the rich Masala is not yet shown! Anything is possible with the commercialization the movie industry has been through. Real life stories have been the hot cakes of these years not just to bring the audience but also to bring the commercial success along with. The shit is, they do post the disclaimer at the start that the characters are fictitious! Safe side taken and you are free to show off, anything.

I guess sensor cuts have become the way the lab exams happen in corporate colleges. Beer and beef to the examiner, full marks to the institution and of course a big zero to the students in concepts.

I liked the movie over all. Vidya has undoubtedly given one of her best performances so far. Award deserving acting provided no other competition comes in rest of the season. The way she has surrendered herself to the character amused me. Screen play has touched deep within awakening the need to understand the voice of the women who do the skin-show for the advantage of themselves obviously, but never to forget, for the advantage of the movies and the producers/commercialization. Who suffer at the end of the day, those who have encouraged them for the skin-show or the actresses themselves? It is crystal clear after seeing the Silk on her death bed!

Now, is there any way to stop the skin-show in the Indian film industry? Simple, put the sensor cuts accordingly. But will that stop people from watching the white skinned Babes? A big question and the answer is a big NO.

Pramoda,

Though I have not seen the movie as yet but what I gather from comments of those who have seen, is that this shows exploitation of women in that field. Let us see when can I see the movie.

Take care
