Rajkummar Rao and Kangana Ranaut film Mental Hai Kya will now be Judgementall Hai Kya, after the CBFC called it out for insensitivity
Rajkummar Rao and Kangana Ranaut film Mental Hai Kya will now be Judgemental Hai Kya, after the CBFC called it out for insensitivity.
The name of a movie is its face, and it will be an issue if the name of the movie gives out a negative connotation that hurts the feelings of the general public!
In the recent past, the Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC) in India has tweaked names of many movies including ‘Padmavat’ which had both positive and negative reactions from all over the country.
Now it’s the turn of the Kangana Ranaut – Rajkummar Rao movie ‘Mental Hai Kya’. There was some noise over this since the poster released some time ago. Now the movie is back in the limelight regarding the title change as directed by the CBFC.
Director Prakash Kovelamudi claims that the movie is a genuine outcry against the social stigma that surrounds the mentally challenged, but the title was indeed insensitive. The Indian Psychiatrist Society had also came up with an objection with regard to the title and poster of the film as making fun of a serious illness.
A spokesperson for the film from Balaji Telefilms has already confirmed that Mental Hai Kya is will be renamed as Judgemental Hai Kya.

It is easy to give in to patriarchal expectations from a married woman and lose your self in a marriage, but the path to happiness is in keeping your independence.
Marriage is often described as the joining of two individuals’ bodies, minds, and souls. Upon getting married, you are expected to share everything with your partner, including time, money, and all other aspects of life. Your life should revolve around your spouse from beginning to end.
But is it necessary to spend every waking moment with the spouse? Are you not supposed to have a life apart from your spouse? And do these rules apply only to women or men as well?
Although both men and women may face this situation, women are generally expected to give up everything once they get married. Despite progress in several areas, expecting women to abandon their interests, passions, and friendships to align their lives with those of their spouses is still considered the norm.
The rising numbers of single women choosing this life shout out clear and loud that patriarchy and sexism will no longer break or chain us.
Another book on singlehood? It seems to be the season for books on the joys and freedom of being single. But Demystifying and Dignifying Singlehood: Life Journeys of Single Women Across the Globe by Uma Jain is different. The book does not glorify or glamourise the lives of single women in any way. These are real stories – with the good, the bad and the ugly, all there.
The book tells the stories of 15 single women across the world. A feeling of deep understanding and empathy fills you as you read the book and understand the challenges faced by the women who are single – by choice or chance. Some of the women chose to be single because they faced discrimination and even abuse as girl children. Some others had abusive marriages and sought divorce.
The tag line ‘Crafting pathways on rough terrains’ on the cover page is enough to tell you that this is a serious take on the issue of singlehood. If it focuses more on the rough than the smooth, that has been the reality for the 15 women.
