Digging deeper, looking at how the film uses death, infidelity, and trauma.
This is such excellent writing, Prathyush! Thank you for thinking and articulating this. (I'm so glad I got to read this brilliance because of a not-so-brilliant film.)
Thank you for presenting your thoughts in such an articulate manner. For the longest time after watching the film i have read a lot that is being written on it and kind was having a debate within myself over the film. And frankly this piece is the most that has come closest to what i feel too cause i neither fell in love with the film nor hated it too. And am glad as well that it was made even with all its ‘flaws’ cause i agree with your last para.
Blew me away and held me to the end brilliantly written
As always, your writing has more depth than the movie that sparked it! 💜
This is an excellent piece! You’ve really dug deep into this genre of “Dharma-fied” dysfunction.
The best piece I have read on Gehraiyaan.
Your approach is super refreshing to read. To place the central idea in a larger context and to explore how different lens (energetic, modern, post modern etc) unearth different aspects is lovely!
Such an interesting perspective! Well written :)
