Gulaab Gang is based on Matriachal Society
‘Gulaab Gang’ director Soumik Sen says his upcoming women-centric film is set in a matriarchal society.The filmmaker said the Madhuri Dixit-starrer “Gulaab Gang” is a story where both the protagonist and antagonist are women,Madhuri plays a firebrand leader in “Gulaab Gang” while Juhi Chawla, who plays a power-hungry politician, is cast in a negative role,whereas men are only playing supporting roles.He further added that women had long been relegated to side roles in Bollywood like that of mothers, sisters and daughters, but in this film men are doing those jobs.
According to sources,Soumik said, “You can say that it is a matriarchal society. I wanted to reverse the trend where men are either hero or villain, or both. It is sort of a Utopian idea in Bollywood where women are the hero as well as the villain. The story, however, remains about the classical conflict between good and evil. The film is full of action scenes and ‘naach-gaana’ like any other commercial film. I have tried to make it a believable world where women are at the centre of everything happening”
Well its great to see women getting their dues after a long time .
