Satyaprem Ki Katha movie has hit the theatres recently and has been going well. The film earned more than Rs 100 crore in the gross worldwide box office. It was also appreciated for its story in which a feminist husband fights for justice for his wife. The romantic drama movie also tackles the problem of date rape and trauma based on the story of an odd married couple Satyaprem played by Kartik Aaryan and Katha played by Kiara Advani.
Directed by Sameer Vidwans, Satyaprem Ki Katha talks about creating awareness among men to become a support system for women in dealing with the patriarchal mindset of society. Sameer advises women to fight for their rights to tackle the wrong and outdated beliefs of society. Men also need to be sensitive to women’s needs. Sameer shared with a media portal how he thinks that through his film, he introduced a husband who says to a woman to become the hero of her story and he will be the supporting character.
Sameer tells how the critics missed out on the point of his film wherein Sattu tells Katha that she has to fight the battle with society herself and he will be just a pillar of support for her.
The film features Kiara Advani in the lead heroine role who had worked in a similar theme film called Guilty released in 2020. Her earlier film helped Kiara to act in a better manner because she had interacted with rape survivors for her film Guilty in the past.
Satyaprem ki Katha film is produced by Sajid Nadiadwala and Namah Pictures. It also features Gajraj Rao, Supriya Pathak, Rajpal Yadav, and Shikha Talsania in key roles.
In today’s times when one section of society embraces women’s role in economic progress and development. There is another section of society where there is still inequality and biasedness of women’s rights and duties. There are still men who think that women should only be doing homemaker roles and shouldn’t spend much time of their life doing anything related to their careers.
Yes, it is not with only men but there are women themselves in the society who are against other women who want to grow in their lives and careers. Having an equal world in a diverse country like India is just next to impossible. We can only find solutions or suggest improvements on a family basis rather than dictating or having a one-rule for all.
Women no doubt have to work really hard to get where they want to be. But let us put it this way not just men but also women themselves and their relatives should come forward in the upliftment of all genders and sections o society. Slow and steady progress can go a long way in bringing about a transformational change in society. So, let us not make women fighters within their own families and neither expects men to be timid and support the wrong. Let us create an equitable world considering everyone’s situations and circumstances.
