Kartik Aaryan’s Monologues: Will This Misogyny Ever End?

Published

on

Kartik Aaryan’s movies are not exactly progressive. And that is far from breaking news for anyone who has kept up with this man’s career. Ever since Pyaar Ka Punchnama, Kartik has been both loved and criticized for picking up similar roles with similar dialogues. But the issue here is way bigger than his acting choices. This week saw the trailer launch of “Pati, Patni, Aur Woh”. Directed by Mudassar Aziz, it stars Aaryan alongside Bhumi Pednekar and Ananya Pandey. And yet again, we get a monologue from his character, as he rants about his sex life.

Rape jokes were never funny

The trailer for the movie is just above the two-minute mark. But it manages to fit in a rich plethora of sexist ideas in it very conveniently. Kartik Aaryan’s character, Chintu Tyagi is cheating on his wife with his colleague. As he tries to hide his infidelity, he spins a web of lies – you know, Bollywood’s run of the mill takes on this genre. But there’s a very specific dialogue in it that is really, really concerning.

If you ask your wife for sex, you’re a beggar. If you don’t have sex with her, you are depriving her. And if you manage to get sex from her through a jugaad, you are dubbed a rapist. (Indian Express)

What is the phrase “haasil kar lena” doing in a conversation about sex? Chintu Tyagi is desperately trying to paint himself as the victim here as he makes a joke out of marital rape. Because unless and until you think your wife “owes” you sex, you wouldn’t say things like this. This is a scary perspective to show on screen, right? This guy is belittling the #metoo movement, reducing women to sex objects, and demanding to be sympathized with, too – all in the same breath. No wonder that the men who like his movies and the kind of ideas he promotes are often (termed as) incels.

And this is certainly not the first time…

Pyaar Ka Punchnama, Sonu Ke Titu Ki Sweety, and now this movie – all of them have this angry man who essentially hates women, and takes it out in the form of these monologues. One would think that at least once his characters would attempt to solve these issues like an adult. But that never happens – they keep forging an escape route but never a solution.

What does Kartik Aaryan have to say about it?

Unsurprisingly, he almost always stands by his characters and the worldview they embody. In a country like India, where every other woman has experienced sexual assault and harassment in one form or another, monologues like these only add fuel to the fire. You see, they tell men that it is okay to be vindictive – to look at sex as something to be “achieved” – to vilify their girlfriends every chance they get. Men like him fail to recognize the effect their work has on the masses. Or maybe it’s all intentional, and they are content with it. Because hey, it’s making them richer at the end of the day. So who cares about the women who will be left to deal with the repercussions?

A post shared by Janhvi Kapoor (@janhvikapoor) on

Janhvi’s makeup is done by Tanvi Chemburkar and hair by Hiral Bhatia. The soft curls and minimum makeup look makes her stand out even more, making the look very elegant and pretty. We even love the fact of how the saree is so simple yet so glamorous, don’t you all agree with us?

While Janhvi captioned her posts saying, “Saree dreams coming true 🌹 #sarinotsorry” on the other hand, her stylist Mohit Rai captioned the posts saying Red like the passion we feel for good fashion! @janhvikapoor red hot and burning it up in @manishmalhotra05 @mmalhotraworldfor #Umang2020.

Well, certainly she is portraying this red in such a passionate way that it feels like the fire of fashion. There are also some really pretty pictures of the actress with other glamorous Bollywood stars on the red carpet. Let us also have a look at that and sneak peek into Umang 2020.

We cannot wait for the show to air as just like every year, once again the Hindi film industry has decided to entertain and reward the police with their annual festival called ‘Umang.’ The annual charity show, organized by the Mumbai Police for the police force and their families. The year 2020, marks the 5th edition of the grand event.

Many other actresses such as Katrina Kaif, Madhuri Dixit, Priyanka Chopra, Vidya Balan were also seen flaunting their designer sarees with beautiful makeup and pretty hair. We hope the Bollywood industry keeps on participating in such events and charities in the coming time to time.

Eminem Releases Surprise Album, ‘Music To Be Murdered By’

Published

on

Fan of the Rap-God? Here’s a little surprise for you. Without warning, Eminem surprise-released his 11th album on midnight Thursday. Ending weeks of rumors and speculation on when the rapper would unveil the follow-up to 2018’s Kamikaze.

As he was leading relatively quiet life. Most of his fans suspected that there is a great possibility that a new album is being created. Moreover, he did shock the world with his latest release! While some may not be too impressed by the content, others have been blown away by the sheer speed of his lyrics in one of his new tunes.

Eminem

The album’s title and cover art allude to the 1958 Jeff Alexander album, Alfred Hitchcock Presents Music to Be Murdered By. Eminem tweeted an image of the album cover featuring Hitchcock holding an ax and a gun to his head. Stating the album cover was “inspired by the master, Uncle Alfred!”

Eminem

It also uses portions of Hitchcock’s spoken-word contributions to the ’58 album, in interludes titled “Alfred.” The album ends just as Hitchcock’s did: with the filmmaker saying, “If you haven’t been murdered, I can only say better luck next time. If you have been, goodnight, wherever you are.”

Listen to the album here-

Though the new album has received many critics. It is mostly because of the same use of lyrics creating issues and speculating other singers as well as critical situation. But, only one day after the release and with no promo whatsoever. All the tracks off Eminem’s new studio album entered the Top 100 chart of Apple Music in the US. The 20-song album also features many guest appearances such as, Ed Sheeran, Black Thought, Q-Tip, Royce Da 5’9″, Anderson .Paak, Young M.A., and Juice WRLD.
