Padmaavat(i) – because we all are supposed to express our opinion on it

And also because I didn’t understand what the whole hullabaloo was about. To me, it felt like a propaganda to boost the “Rajput” image instead of tarnishing it. Although people talking about themselves in a third person voice and bringing in the whole “Rajputana” tradition in every sentence could be considered as an assault to its reputation! Oh and I didn’t quite get the problem with showing “Jauhar” on screen. Not that I would condone it or any other form of self harm, but I have strong feelings about the way women have progressed in their ways and means to safeguard themselves. Jauhar was a reality of those times. It was how women saved themselves, it was also a sign of protest against the intruders trying to own them as war trophies. We have to accept that it was a part of our past, glorious or not.
