There are a lot of comments on how women in the movie Badlapur were shown in a demeaning form and how it was misogynist. How Raghu (Varun Dhawan) and Liak (Nawazuddin Siddiqui) used women for their own gains and how there was no consideration on their part whatsoever. What one does not see is how the female characters of Badlapur are shown in this particularly pure light of humaneness. How being tortured both physically and mentally does not stop them from being brave and selfless, whatever be the need of the situation. In the movie, largely you will see how the male characters took females as their usable entity to fulfill their needs, mostly superficial, and left them on their own when done, but on the other hand , you will notice how even in the face of adversities, these female characters, played brilliantly by all actresses, show their insight, the need to save the loved one, en-durability, kindness, sympathy, love and what not. What people are failing to recognize it that being used as sexual objects by men is actually considered petty by them. That even if you are stronger in force and a female can't match the physical strength of a man, that doesn't mean she is afraid of it. You would see when a character who was molested by Raghu in order to get back at Laik, she did not stop from supporting her friend or facing Raghu in the end. A female Private Investigator, breaking the prejudices of the society and working to earn a living. When a wife, who was lied to by her husband and how Raghu proceeded on to humiliate her, she still held her ground and was ready to do anything to save her husband. Even in the end, she remained calm and was ready to tackle the situation alone without knowing the circumstances. A mother who is always concerned about her child and will go to any lengths to save him. When a social worker who believes in justice for all lives, even though she was subdued by the police interrogation, she did not loose her courage to face the man, who was the root of her current situation, for his menial act. There is a mother ready to act in any manner possible to save her child even in the face of death. If you are still gonna go with misogynistic, just because you believe that men can dominate a woman however they want , and females were treated brutally then you missed out on how the male counterparts had to bring in the only differentiating factor (bodily strength) to handle the situation, just to add fuel to their own ego. Grit, gore and ego are a way of life and everybody deals with it in their own manner. Women face atrocities, but the way they face these atrocities is a shown brilliantly. Performances by all the female cast is commendable. Yami Gautam, Divya Dutta, Huma Qureshi, Radhika Apte,Pratima Kazmi, Ashwini Kalsekar. The movie felt like a breath of fresh air after a long time. There is both criticism and applause for this piece of art, but in the end it is upto the viewer and his sense of perception that will effect you love or hate for it. I would suggest, let it reverberate in our thoughts for sometime?
