In the new age of digitalization, we have witnessed a rise in the discussion about feminism. People have been more vocal about the topic, and through various mediums like podcasts, vlogs, memes, we have seen the growing awareness about the topic. However, in this discussion, we have missed or ignored the other gender. What about Men’ism?’ Don’t you think that men also go through many things? They also face multiple issues, turmoil in their life. So, on International Men’s Day, here is a film, Ye Mard Bechara, that touches upon the unexplored issue and states that Mard ko dard hota hai. Here are the 4 reason that makes this film special.
A Family-Comedy after ages : When was the last time, you could gather your family to watch something on the big screen? A long time ago, isn’t it? Thanks to the OTT platform, content consumption has become personalised, and today every member of the family is busy watching different content under one roof. On the other side, Ye Mard Bechara is a clean family comedy film that targets each and every age group and tickles your funny bone without going overboard with cheap, sexist jokes. You can plan a movie weekend with your family with Ye Mard Bechara, and this is a feat that is becoming rare.
The Talented Ensamble Cast : We all love veterans Seema Pahwa, Atul Srivastava, Brijendra Kala and Sapna Sand. They have entertained us for years, and their presence, bring a smile to our face instantly. This film is loaded with these talented stars along with Seema’s daughter, Manukriti, debutants Veeraj Rao, Manikk Chaudhary.
A Fresh Script : The best part about this film is that it talks about a topic, that has been untouched. We all know about the struggle, pain, problems women face, but have we ever tried to think from the opposite gender’s perspective? Ye Mard Bechara promises to voice an important issue entertainingly, and that is what makes it special. This is a subject that hasn’t been tapped, and special mention goes to director-writer Annup Thapa. Annup dared to think out of the box, and for the first time in Bollywood we have a film that talks about men and their issues.
Sensible-Soulful Music : Another factor that can make or break a movie is music. If the music and songs find a connection among audiences, it assures visibility and buzz and Ye Mard Bechara has been fortunate enough to grab ears by its music. The titular Rap song by rapper Sampoet has already created waves for being upfront frank about men’s problems. The love track Banjara sung by Divya Kumar has struck a chord among music lovers. Nakash Aziz’s Super Marda has all the right notes to become the next ultimate bhangra-party number.
So, these factors are enough for you to catch Ye Mard Bechara. Written-Directed by Anuup Thapa, produced by Shivam Aggarwal and 2 Idiot Films, Ye Mard Bechara releases in cinemas on 19 November.
