After being in the news for his heartwarming letter to his granddaughters, Amitabh Bachchan is back with yet another hard-hitting video #AbSamjhautaNahin which is based on women empowerment. Big B is also seen mouthing one-liners in the video often heard by women in various walks of life.
The video is an amalgamation of snippets of regular, everyday statements that a modern Indian makes in a day about women. #AbSamjhautaNahin shows the effect on our words, on our choices, on our decisions and reactions, that women today are a victim of judgement, of gender stereotyping, of subconscious body shaming and moral policing, more so today, than ever. It highlights that we believe we’re speaking out of our own volition, backed with absolute neutrality with no shades of gender bias. But the truth is, the most harmless and functional words and sentences in our lives are the biggest testament of how a society, a dominant ideology, is forcing us to think, and speak, sometimes without our knowledge. And women, are speaking that language. Can we hear it?
