Check out these 5 useful tips for a blissful career!
Gehraiyaan, I think, is about a woman who is independent enough to live a life without playing victim, following what her heart wants.
I have seen a lot of negative reviews doing rounds on the movie Gehraiyaan and I felt I should also give my two cents about it.
What the movie seems to be to a lot of people, it is not to me.
It is not a movie just about beautiful locales or about good looking actors in branded clothes.
It is not a movie where infidelity gets hidden behind childhood trauma.
Yes the movie does have good looking actors in beautiful clothes in amazing locales but that is not what it is just about.
It is about a woman who is independent enough to run the household without playing victim because she’s not a victim. She is trying to make a life with her unemployed writer boyfriend and has no qualms about it.
It is about a woman who has gone through childhood trauma but has worked her way well through yoga maybe or just a plain positive attitude.
It is about a woman who does fall in love with her cousins fiancé but is neither defensive nor submissive about it.
Love happens and that’s what is shown here.
The movie is also about a man; an ambitious man who falls in love with his fiancé’s cousin. Not because he is unhappy in his existing relationship but well just because love happens. He too is neither defensive nor submissive about it.
He tries to work his way through his ambition and his love, and well, Fate doesn’t treat him well. But that is just hard luck.
The movie is also about a cousin duo who portray a very real relationship to me. Without any drama without any emotional upheaval: a genuine relationship.
Gehraiyaan Is a Bollywood movie without too much of the Bollywood masala except well beautiful people and beautiful locales.

Neena Gupta’s take on love between a man and woman opens a can of worms. She’s speaking her truth, which is a reality for so many people, but is it universal?
Neena Gupta made a statement in her interview with Humans of Bombay that she doesn’t believe love exists between a man and a woman. She said it starts off with lust, which then changes into affection, and becomes a habit. The only love she’s ever known and felt is for her daughter, Masaba.
Neena is married to Vivek Mehra, a chartered accountant who she first met on a flight. Vivek Mehra has two children, and it’s his second marriage. It’s Neena’s second marriage too. She was earlier married at an early age of 20. She has one child, Masaba, from her previous relationship with the now retired West Indian cricketer, Vivian Richards.
Her statement about love evoked some vehement reactions ranging from she’s not met the right man to “blood runs thicker than water”.
A man doing a PhD is rebuked for not earning well. A woman on other hand is constantly questioned why she's doing a PhD when she should have been married and raising kids.
Indians have an almost fanatic obsession with the salutation Dr. Even a child who barely understands the world around, when asked “what you want to become later in life?” usually blurts out a teacher or a doctor, as these are the professionals we first encounter early on in our lives.
I too, was fascinated with the white coat fascination alongside with the Dr tag, right from childhood. However, I did not score the marks required for getting into medical college, and my dream landed on the ground with a thud, and I went in for a graduation in sciences.
My graduation and post-graduation were a roller coaster ride and a second post-graduation which I pursued since I wanted to get into the academic career brought with itself a new perspective towards life. That year I shone like the brightest star and became the most meritorious student of the campus. I cleared my Net exam much before the post-graduation results were declared, and became a sort of sensation in the university. One of my professors remarked, “So we see the next doctor in making now” when he congratulated me.
