Atrangi Re’s upset about the marriage is like a shock to the ‘Tamil Brahmins’!

Isn’t it a contradiction? In a state where thousands and thousands of children are not married, one of them marries a beautiful girl. But the boy is busy trying to get rid of the girlfriend. This is even weirder when there is no other girl in the boy’s life. Recently, a different story emerged: it came to light that due to gender and caste reasons in Tamil Nadu society, single people in a community face many difficulties in finding a wife for marriage. This situation has arisen only because there are not enough girls in the ratio of boys.

Last week, PTI quoted a Brahmin organization in Tamil Nadu as saying that there are around 40,000 young people in the community’s 30-40 age group. Because there are only 6 girls available for 10 marrying boys in the community. The community, which suffers from a low sex ratio, is looking for brides in the Brahmin community of Uttar Pradesh and Bihar rather than looking for cross-caste or cross-religious alternatives. The organization is also running a massive campaign for this. The same problem in Tamil Nadu is the exact opposite in Aanand L Rai’s movie “Atrangi Re”. as a contradiction.

In Atrangi Re, a young Tamil Brahmin (Dhanush) named Vishnu is forcibly married to Rinku Suryavanshi in the eastern part of North India (perhaps Benares, Ananda Raya’s favorite city). Both Rinku and Vishnu do not believe in forced marriage. You have to come to Tamil Nadu though. Bindass Rinku dreams of a different world. Vishnu wants to get rid of Rinku, who was embraced in a forced marriage. He is in the process of separating from her. At Atrangi Re, you see the opposite scene from the Tamil Nadu story told earlier.

Well, the starting city of the story is Delhi, where they both have to go down a different path. with mutual consent. However, Sajjad’s love triangle, namely Akshay Kumar, has entered history. Rinku loves Sajjad. As Sajjad’s presence increases between Vishnu and Rinku, Vishnu falls in love with Rinku. With the passage of time, now Rinku also starts to like Vishnu. In general, the story of the film revolves around the theme of Aanand L. Roy’s favorite love, his uniqueness and his triangle.

Both parts of Tanu Weds Manu, Raanjhanaa and Zero will be remembered. Anand has directed all these films showing unique love and problems. After a long time, he tries his luck again with the couple Akshay Kumar-Dhanush and Sara Ali Khan. There are many great characteristics in Anand’s love stories. One is that they pose the problems of urban society. But their cities are level two, level three, so they can easily communicate in both metropolitan society and rural city society. Tanu marries Manu in Kanpur, Ranjhana in Banaras, and Zero in Meerut.

Second, Anand L Rai’s way of talking about social problems is different. Talk about political and social issues keeping love stories at the center. Take a look at your movies. As far as Atrangi Re is concerned, here they are also seen together in three major themes. Forced marriage in eastern India. However, Anand has taken a revolutionary step here. This would not have happened in the context of the story, but they have probably shown the marriage of a Rajput girl to a Brahmin boy. about forced marriages[आर बॉलीवुड ने हाल फ़िलहाल कई फ़िल्में बनाई हैं लेकिन वो प्रभाव छोड़ने में नाकाम साबित हुई हैं.

तीसरा- मुस्लिम हिंदू प्रेम. राजनीति में इस वक्त लव जिहाद का तगड़ा शोर है. रांझणा के कुंदन शंकर और जोया हैदर की दिलचस्प प्रेम कहानी के आठ साल बाद आनंद एल रॉय ने संज्जाद और रिंकू की प्रेम कहानी को दिखाया. आजकल फिल्मों में हिंदू-मुस्लिम प्रेम बर्र की छत है. लोग फिल्मों में गैर धार्मिक प्रेम तो बर्दाश्त कर ले जाते हैं- पर पेंच फंस हीरो के धर्म में फंस जाता है. और बॉलीवुड के निर्देशक हमेशा बहुमत की ओर ताकते हैं. अरविन्द स्वामी की बॉम्बे हो या सनी देओल की गदर. फिल्म रिलीज होने के बाद हीरोइन वाले समुदाय ने तो बवाल ही काट दिया था. लेकिन आनंद एल राय होशियार निर्देशक हैं उन्हें अच्छे से मालूम है कि कैसे, कितना और कहां तक हाथ डालना है. रांझणा से बेहतर भला क्या उदाहरण हो सकता है? आनंद राय विवाद की गुंजाइश नहीं रखे होंगे.

प्रेम कहानी के अंदर तीसरा बड़ा मुद्दा आनंद ने संभवत: तमिलनाडु में ब्राह्मण युवाओं के कुंवारेपन और उसकी वजहों को लेकर उठाया हो. अपने तरीके से. यह भी हो सकता है इस बिंदु पर ट्रेलर में दिखी चीजें हकीकत में वैसी ना हो जिस तरह से हम यहां जिक्र कर रहे हैं. लेकिन फिलहाल तीन बड़े मुद्दों के इर्द-गिर्द नजर आ रही अतरंगी रे की प्रेम कहानी इत्तेफाकन दिलचस्प बन गई है. जो सबसे खराब बात है वो ये कि रांझणा की बेहद प्यारी कहानी रिपीट होती नजर आ रही है जिसे आनंद का फ़ॉर्मूलाभर बताकर छोड़ा नहीं जा सकता. हालांकि इनमें बातचीत करने और बेचे जाने के पर्याप्त तत्व मौजूद हैं. ट्रेलर में इसकी झलक है. रांझणा में हिंदू तमिल लड़का-मुस्लिम लड़की, लव ट्राएंगल, भट्टा परसौल और दादरी के किसान आंदोलन की झलक, जेएनयू  की छात्र राजनीति को प्रेम कहानी में दिखाया था.

Keep an eye out for the arrangements Anand has made to sell the story this time. Atrangi Re can be a good entertaining love story but true to the old Anand formula. The trailer and some of their songs look beautiful right now. The film will premiere on Disney Plus Hotstar next month over Christmas. Until the movie comes out, keep falling in love by listening to the song “Tum Tak” by Raanjhanaa. Love and be happy.
