Greatness is an exponential function of talent and time in mathematical terms . This has been more than established yet again by the Shehanshah of Celluloid Big B in the movie Pink . Yet another cracker of performance by the genius after Piku .
Sir Vivian Richards used to own the park once he was out in the cricket field with his deadly weapon –the cricket bat . The same is true of Big B . He rules the space , the surrounding , the mind and mood of the movie watchers with his mesmerising methods .
Pink is easily one of the best movies made in the recent memory . Indian society’s biases & prejudices against womenfolk , its false notions and assumptions has been wonderfully captured in the movie . Stereotyping an independant party-goer working urban middle-class woman as footloose has long been the bane of our mediaeval feudal social system and there have been repeated attempts to justify this within and outside Indian courtrooms through means –fair and foul , thereby indirectly encouraging and abetting the rogue elements and goons within our system .
The movie captures the sense of helplessness and resignation among the victimised girls in the face of a compromised police investigation and unfriendly and judgmental neighbourhood . The ageing frail idiosyncratic lawyer in Amitabh Bachchan brings justice with his soul-stirring dialogues and narrations . There are many moments in the movie that will bring tears to a conscientious soul .
The movie is a big tight slap on the faces of contractors of so-called false morality and certainly deserves to be India’s Oscar entry this year .
