On-screen abuse



It is refreshing to find that someone is calling out our ‘masala’ films for what they are: an attempt to mainstream patriarchal and regressive cultural conceptions of what gender relations should look like (OpEd, “Standing up to on-screen abuse”, January 1). Films are not just for entertainment. They serve as a backdrop for public discourse, have substance to impress upon young minds and can be powerfully self-reflective. It is time that people associated with a project take ownership of the message they send out to society.
