Women in India: A ‘Progressive’ View from Bollywood—Screening and Discussion of QUEEN
Nita Kumar, moderator

A much-awarded Hindi movie of 2014 including best story, actress, script, editing, in National and Filmfare awards, QUEEN is the story about an ordinary girl from New Delhi who, left by her fiancé on the eve of her wedding, decides to console herself by going alone on their planned honeymoon to Paris and Amsterdam. Then we, the audience, gets instruction on how to imagine her future. She holds her own with interesting people and learns a lesson at every step. A familiar-seeming story of the girl-next-door, Rani, played by Kangna Ranaut, charms and entertains in unexpected ways while understating the most important message possible, “Be yourself.” 

Movie screening will begin promptly at 5:30 pm.
