I saw teere saang recently, before it was released people used to say it’s the Indian version of juno ( Which is soo not true). Yes the story line is the same about a girl getting pregnant when is she still underage. But the way it is shown is totally different. It showed the real Indian mentality.
One thing they said in the movie and I truly agree to it is this that what really determines whether the girl is mature or not? As they said In the movie, there are different rules and different age limits of when is a girl legally said to be an adult in different countries. If a girl and a boy are mature enough to have sex then I guess they are mature enough to even have a baby and get married. Look, I am not saying everyone in this world should do that, but if by mistake something like this happens then what is wrong with that? Why does society treats it like something bad? Like something evil? As if its something that a human being should not do?
Now you’ll say, that if a girl gets pregnant when is still young she wont be able to take care of the child and all. Well yes, agreed. But then what are her parents for then? anywhich ways these days both parents work and the kids are grown up by their grand parents. So if they can do it then, then why not now?
Parents always want their daughters to get married as soon as they reach 23 or 24, but if their daughter gets pregnant at 20 it’s a crime. I mean WTF???
One other thing I liked about the movie is this that, they didn’t show that they get married and left their studies and settle down and all that crap. But rather showed that she contines her studies and both the families accept their kids.
I guess, Indian people really need to change their way of thinking atleast a bit.
I would say this movie was satish kaushiks best movie ever.
P.S - I don’t know what you all will say to this, but I would love to hear your views on this matter.
