Tamil Film Gargi Is A Daughter’s Battle With The Good And Evil In A Parent

Gargi is an extraordinary Tamil film starring Sai Pallavi, which portrays the dilemma in the mind of a daughter about a loved father - is he an angel or a demon?

Trigger Warning: This deals with child sexual abuse and may be triggering for survivors.

Gargi is a Tamil movie that explores the theme of good vs. evil but with a difference.

The story: a security guard at an apartment building is accused of assaulting an eight-year-old child. His daughter does everything possible to prove him innocent. She takes the help of an inexperienced junior lawyer who finds loopholes in the police investigation and manages to prove that he is not guilty.

But, later on, she realizes that he had indeed committed the misdeed.  She takes immediate action to put him behind bars.

Love can blind us, but we can also be clear eyed about our loved ones

Every girl idolizes her father. This blind love and trust must have clouded Gargi’s judgment. Moreover, her father saved her from being molested when she was a child. Maybe, that’s one of the reasons that she did not even consider the possibility that he might have done any wrong.

We all have the habit of convincing ourselves that our near and dear ones can never make mistakes. We believe that we are always right and always the other party is in the wrong.

All of us make errors, big or small. We have to accept the consequences, either way.  We don’t have to be a ‘bad’ person to make blunders.  We have to battle the good vs. evil in our mind and let the good win, on a daily basis.

Why is Gargi a must watch and a favourite film? Because it makes us realize that we all have an angel and a demon within ourselves.
