With the Veere Di Wedding trailer out, it appears as if finally, Bollywood has decided to fill in a glaring gap and make a fun movie on a girl gang. Catch the trailer of this upcoming movie here!
The Veere Di Wedding trailer which shows a gang of four girlfriends will have you ROFL. You will identify with them, probably hear echo of your own conversations on a girls’ night out and laugh at the unabashed language.
As per the trailer, all the four women in their mid-thirties, do not want to follow the set rules of society and instead, choose to live life on their own terms. They have girls’ nights out, drink, smoke and discuss their sex lives – all of which are considered taboo in our country. When one of them finally agrees to get married, she has no clue what she has signed up for. The ensuing madness forms the crux of the story.
It’s heartening to see Kareena Kapoor in a madcap role, something she had played to perfection in Jab We Met. She is ably supported by Sonam Kapoor, Swara Bhaskar and Shikha Talsania. Surprisingly, this movie has been produced by Balaji Telefilms, a production house which is infamous for making its serials as regressive as possible.
The trailer showcases how women in our country are branded as per their marital status. There are unwanted categories like ‘unwed mothers’, ‘divorcee’ or ‘sad spinster’ that women have to avoid being slotted in at all costs. It does not matter if you have a successful career, a degree, or even fame – unless you have the all important ‘mangalsutra’ around your neck. The need to have a girl gang and sticking along with them through thick and thin is also the main theme that runs through the trailer.
There have been many movies on boy gangs or on young boys who stumble through life till they find their way. It’s about time that we got a movie which is about girls but does not deal with crime against women plaguing our society – as if girls cannot come together for any other reason.
Veere Di Wedding seems to be about friendship, the importance of girlfriends, finding yourself, fighting against the patriarchal mindset, but most of all, about putting up your feet and laughing a little through the circus called life. After all, why should boys have all the fun??
Catch the trailer and definitely, the movie as well – it seems really promising!

If her MIL had accepted her with some affection, wouldn't they have built a mutually happier relationship by now?
The incident took place ten years ago.
Smita could visit her mother only in summers when her daughter had school holidays. Her daughter also enjoyed meeting her Nani, and both of them had done their reservations for a week. A month before their visit, her husband told her, “My mom is coming for 4-5 months!”
Smita shuddered. She knew the repercussions. She would have to hear sarcastic comments from her mother-in-law for visiting her mother. She may make these comments directly only a bit, but her servants would be flooded with the words, “How horrible she is! She leaves me and goes!”
Are we so swayed by star power and the 'entertainment' quotient of cinema that satisfies our carnal instincts that we choose to ignore our own subconscious mind which always knows what is right and what is wrong?

Do you remember your first exposure to an extremely violent act or the aftermath of a violent act?
I am pretty sure for most of us it would be through cinema. But I remember very vividly my first exposure to aftermath of an unbelievably grotesque violent act in real life. It was as a student at a Dental College and Hospital.
