Ratna Pathak on the rise in action films releasing

During a recent chat with The Lallantop, Ratna Pathak Shah got candid about the rise of high-octane action films like SS Rajamouli’s RRR and Sandeep Reddy Vanga’s Animal. Talking about the increase in aggressive action films making their way to the big screen in recent years, the ‘Sarabhai vs Sarabhai’ said, “You remember the impact Zanjeer or Deewar had? They reflected the anger that the social disruptions of the era caused in the 70s and 80s. It was a tough time for our country. Once again, the youth is unhappy and angry, and this is how art is showcasing it.”

Ratna Pathak Shah on watching RRR and Animal

Talking about the Ram Charan-Allu Arjun starrer period drama and the Ranbir Kapoor action drama, Ratna said, “Frankly, I have not seen RRR and Animal. I tried watching RRR but I didn’t watch the entire film. I can accept that many people have liked and appreciated RRR but it is not to my taste.” She continued, “However, I didn’t feel the need to watch Animal. I saw its poster and its mood and I got scared, felt distanced. Then I heard such things about it… so I didn’t watch it. I can imagine the sort of film it is.”

Ratna on s*x, violence in South Indian films

The veteran actress also got candid about the portrayal of s*x and violence in South Indian films. She said, “S*x and violence are portrayed in a strange way in South Indian films. In their songs, s*xuality is of a different level. It is an interesting contradiction — a very civilised, controlled society is shown at one level in their films and then there is this… violence is especially incredible.” Ratna Pathak Shah added, “Even in more serious films — Vetrimaran films are disturbingly violent. I agree with the portrayal where you show violence to disturb you, to change things, but at the same time, violence is very seductive, and people get used to it. I feel there is a responsibility producers of art have.”
