I always knew that men hate Draupadi and blame her for the mahabharata war but i was shocked even Sita is blamed for the Ramayan war.
Yes. It's correct. That's exactly the MCP nature that bursts out..!!
However, most of the filmy dialogues which I mentioned were for comedy/satire only. Even though I said I can't forgive for the sake of that, I am forced to do the same when some critically acclaimed movies come up with the same attitude. Compared to them, the comedy film makers should feel less guilt as they don't have much bad intentions.
Why I say so is that last year a Malayalam movie called 'Pranayam' (love) was released. Starring Mohanlal, Jayaprada and Anupam Kher. Mohanlal is Jayaprada's husband and Anupam Kher is her old husband (now a widower). She meets her old husband during the old age and even Mohanlal is aware of that. He supports it since he is on wheel chair now. However both families have problems from the side of their grown up sons and daughters.
Once Jayaprada and her daughter were having arguments about the issue. The daughter says " It's not fair from your side to do such things at this age. I am married, I have my husband. We nee to face the society and answer their questions".
Daughter: Mother, I am ashamed that you are like Panchali now..!
Jayaprada is shocked..!! As if her daughter called addressed her by the name of the local wh**e..! Here eyes filled with tears, says: "Do you know to whom you are blabbering such words? I am your mother..How dare someone call her own mother as Panchali..?? "
Daughter turns here face as if she called the right word.." Then what should I call a lady who is in need of 2 men?"
Jayaprada starts weeping and run towards Mohanlal..
Jayaprada: Did you hear what she called me..? she called me Panchaali.."
Mohanlal's face gets stunned as if his daughter challenged his fertility..!!
What more..? The family got separated and the daughter left them some after an argument of 2 more minutes. And we must be proud that it started off with calling her by the name of Panchali.
Sad to say that this movie was written and directed by Blessy, strictly one among the best directors South Indian cinema has ever produced. And the movie included actors of a life time.. like Mohanlal, Jayaprada and Anupam Kher..
