Bhansali brings up a big problem in society under the guise of cinema!


Cinema and society have been influencing each other. Whatever happens in society, it is shown many times in the cinema. The cinema shows a new path to society, sometimes it plays a powerful role to generate great changes. That is why cinema is called the mirror of society. What is the status of women in society even today is not hidden from anyone. Especially women from backward, oppressed, exploited and disadvantaged sectors are in poor condition. In the modern era, where women work side by side with men. She is supporting him from earth to space.

On the other hand, heinous incidents such as domestic violence, injustice, atrocities and rape continue to happen to them. Even today they have not received their due. Among them there is also a section of prostitutes, who are forced to feed themselves by exchanging their bodies. By giving her children a good education, she wants to include them in the mainstream of society. These problems of prostitutes have been prominently shown in Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s movie ‘Gangubai Kathiawadi’. Their demands have been forcefully raised through the character of Gangubai, a resident of Kamathipura, Mumbai’s red-light district.

Alia Bhatt played the role of a prostitute in Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s film Gangubai Kathiawadi.

These problems of prostitutes have been discussed in the film.

Why does a girl or a woman enter the business of prostitution? This is a very delicate and serious question. There must be compulsion at the core of every response to this. As we talk about the movie ‘Gangubai Kathiawadi’. In this, most of the girls are thrown into the business of prostitution just like Ganga Bai from Kamathipura, daughter of lawyer Harjivandas from Kathiawar, Gujarat. Ganga wants to be a heroine in movies. Her boyfriend Ramnik takes her away from her house and takes her to Mumbai with a dream of making her a hero. But the red light area goes to a kotha in Kamathipura selling it for only 1000 rupees. Sheela Bai, the owner of the kotha, commits many atrocities with the girls. She forced them to trade meat. Ganga is also thrown into prostitution, after which she becomes Gangubai.

Like the Ganges, thousands of girls in our country are pushed into the swamp of sexism every day. The one that takes them to this point is their own. Sometimes it takes the form of your husband, lover or father, and sometimes a criminal. Along with this, some women get into this business due to their poverty and helplessness. They have to feed themselves and their children. That’s why they don’t see an easier way than this. Sometimes some girls also get into this business to fulfill their great hobbies. But most of the numbers are of forced women and girls. Once one reaches the infamous street, it is difficult to go back. After that, his life becomes hell. These women, the first victims of drug addiction and disease, continue to suffer throughout their lives.

Empowerment of women and the right of prostitution in the cinema

Women’s empowerment has been strongly advocated through the character of Gangubai in the movie ‘Gangubai Kathiawadi’. Along with this, the prostitution law requirements have also been highlighted. It is shown that when a girl is fraudulently sold on the spot, instead of crying over her fate there, she thinks of doing something new and big. She tries to eliminate the plight of girls and women who live in the red zone. she makes movement. She works for the education of the children of prostitutes born there. She takes the smuggled girls out of there and sends them home. Even the Prime Minister of the country meets for the prostitution law. She makes the fight for the rights of prostitutes the goal of her life. When she speaks, her voice is heard throughout the country.

Prostitution is a very old profession. But it has never been recognized in Indian society. It has always been considered immoral. It means selling the body for money for the needs of clients, such as sexual satisfaction. This gives a woman the opportunity to earn a living. Known since ancient times, prostitution means that after having sex with a woman, you pay her money. India has laws related to the control of prostitution, especially those related to the Immoral Traffic in Women and Girls Act 1956, the Immoral Traffic Prevention Act 1956, the Immoral Traffic (Prevention) Act 1956, and the Immoral Traffic (Prevention) Act 1956. ITPA Act of 1956. . In 2006, the then Minister for Women and Child Development, Renuka Choudhary, introduced a bill in Parliament to amend the Immoral Trafficking (Prevention) Act. However, prostitution is still not legally recognized in the country. The Supreme Court has also asked the government to make laws.
