Happy Monday! I got iced coffee this morning, woot! So much energy! Which I can now expend on answering your questions.
You can ask me anything you want, from the personal (“what is the first Indian movie you saw with a mother character?”) to the specific and factual (“what is the word for ‘mother’ in Hindi?”) to the general discussion (“why are there so many mothers in Indian films?”)
Only rule is, you have to let me answer first! Because the discussion goes better that way. Once I answer, you can feel free to join the conversation if you have something to say.
Oh, and I have a question for you! Following the “worst” theme we’ve had going:
Who is the worst mother character in any movie you have seen?
I think I gotta go with a tie between the two Agneepath mothers, Zarina Wahab and Rohini Hattangadi. Yes, eventually, it was a good idea to protect her teenage daughter from her gangster older son. But when he was a little boy? Couldn’t she just have forgiven him and loved him instead of throwing him out? Also, what was up with putting all the responsibility for taking care of the family on him after his father died? Step up woman!!!! Put your grief aside instead of making your son think he has to earn your love by doing everything himself! He literally has to be dying in her lap before he gets so much as a pat on the head. That woman was COLD.
