“Now you were preventing me from sitting with your father, now you are preventing me from going to aarti, why is it like this mother?” …in response to this ‘innocent question’, the mother can only say: “This is the fate of woman Is daughter.” Here is another question about the answer to this question, but it is necessary. After all, what is the destiny of women? Has the actual position of women changed in the 21st century, as we seek to settle on Mars after the moon? Even today, does any father sit down with his daughter and talk about those subjects that Orthodox society has considered taboo? The answers to all of these questions are seen in the movie ‘Innocent Question’, which will be released in theaters on August 5th.

In the 2 minute 55 second trailer for the movie ‘Innocent Question’, it is shown that a girl’s relatives are giving her the idol of Shri Krishna as her brother. The innocent girl really begins to love the idol of Shri Krishna as her brother. She carries it with you at all times. Love calls laddus. His age keeps increasing with the cycle of time. One day she suddenly gives voice to her mother in a panic. The mother goes and sees that the child has had menstruation. Does the innocent child not know what menstruation is at all? But after that the discrimination starts with him. He is not allowed to sit with his father. He is not allowed to keep the Laddu Gopal from him. There are restrictions all the time.
“Coming to the temple during the month. Worship. touch the idol. The scriptures are not supported. Her mother explains to her, “Whether a woman or a girl remains impure for 5 or 6 days of the month.” The girl hurt by these things is very sad. Here, the matter goes out of the family and into society. Upset about touching the idol of the girl with menstruation, some people file a case in court. The matter goes to the judge. The story of the movie takes a twist from this. His questions overshadow the accusations against the girl in court. What happens next? We’ll have to wait for the movie to find out.

In all these films the periods have been talked about in different ways. Things related to him have been highlighted. But Santosh Upadhyay’s film ‘Innocent Question’ presents this delicate subject in a unique way. In this, religion has been kept at the center, but the evils and superstitions of society have also been attacked.
How did the idea of making this film come about? In response to this question, director and writer Santosh Upadhyay says, “This is 2014. A girl studying in class 8 came to me. She got separated from her parents and asked me to talk privately. She said sir, why do girls have periods? To be honest, I had no answer to this question. It was only after this that I came up with the idea to make a film on this topic. After that I wrote her story. Even today, in a city metropolitan like Delhi, a 14-year-old girl cries because of this normal and natural thing.There is still a superstition regarding menstruation, which is the disgrace of the country.
Let us tell you that there is a superstition about periods not only in India but all over the world. In our country, during menstruation, women or girls cannot enter the kitchen or touch any food. Going to the temple and worshiping is a long way off. In many places, touching pickles is not allowed during menstruation. People believe that the pickle rots because of this. In Nepal, women are kicked out of the house when they are menstruating. Even in America, women are considered impure during this time. In Israel, when a girl gets her period for the first time, they slap her on the cheeks. This is done so that the girl looks beautiful.
