The debate about whether joint families are better for couples than nuclear families has been going on for decades now. Ultimately, it’s a matter of personal choice, isn’t it? After the release of the film Tu Jhoothi Main Makkaar by the famous filmmaker Luv Ranjan (Pyar Ka Punchnama), the debate has been reignited.
One woman accused the film starring Shraddha Kapoor, Ranbir Kapoor and Anubhav Singh Bassi of glorifying joint family systems.
She said it was disturbing to watch the film.
On Twitter, she wrote: “I saw tu jhooti main makkar and realised it’s about glorifying the joint family system… they especially took a strong, independent woman and made her believe that she will be happy in a joint family system once she gives up her hopes of having her own house and independent life…”
“Some women do not have a problem with the joint family system and that’s fine, but to take a character who was ANTI-JOINT FAMILY SYSTEM and change her mind and put her in that situation and show that she’s happier now was sooooo upsetting”
“Bollywood has never been perfect, but I didn’t expect to see anything like this from a film that supposedly explores how modern relationships work.”
“It gives men the false idea that they can take an independent woman and mold her to their own liking. This is not the case in reality.”
In response, one Twitter user cited examples of other films that glorify the sacrifice of women.
“The entire entertainment industry is like this. From “Sasural Genda Phool,” in which a rich girl eventually learns to fit in with a middle-class family, to Anjali being forced to marry Ram in “Dhadkan,” the plot is based on women’s sacrifice and transformation.
Some of the people think filmmaker Luv Ranjan hates women.
“It’s taken a long time, but I’m glad people are seeing this. But as I said, what did we expect from Luv Ranjan?
“Luv Ranjan HATES women lmao”
“I thought Luv Runjan always portrays the heroine’s choices as crimes”
