Check: ‘It is a woman’s body and therefore her choice’, is a line that many still do not understand when it comes to motherhood.
Sara’s, directed by Jude Anthany Joseph, starring Anna Ben and Sunny Wayne at the helm, is a much-needed spokesperson for women who don’t feel maternal and unrepentant. It is for those who do not want to stop chasing their dreams, big or small, no matter how others judge them about their position on motherhood.
From her school days, Sara knew that she never wanted to give birth to a child. And every time you’ve said it, the canned answer ‘You’ll change your mind’ has come your way. But she never did. While she was busy pursuing her dream of being a filmmaker, she met Jeevan, who also doesn’t entertain the kids. The attraction ignites and their connection grows, amidst society and conventional family members. While Sara trusts her dreams and decisions, those around her struggle with that. Later?
Jude Anthany deserves applause for introducing the idea of voluntary childlessness, and the lawsuits, social exclusions, ridiculous expectations of superparents and more that childless couples face, both from immediate and non-immediate families. Anna Ben is quite relatable as Sara, who dreams of seeing the credits with her name at the end of the film she directs. Sara’s struggles, which are largely derived from her gender, are honestly portrayed in the film, which also shows how men in the so-called ‘motherhood years’ can also be deaf to individual choices, through character. from Sunny Wayne, Jeevan. . The movie also has some popular faces like TV personality Dhanya Varma and ‘Collector-Bro’ Prashant Nair doing interesting character roles. The music in Shaan Rahman’s film is soft, but catchy enough, to add a sweet melody to Sara’s adventures and dreams.
Sara struggles with cultural assumptions, but it remains a question of how much potential the film has to lift those who tend to neglect options like ‘feminism’ out of denial. Also, given that her character remains privileged in her battles, with an understanding father, resources to pay for a visibly opulent apartment, and no obvious financial struggles, it is important to understand that women’s struggles with their dreams are manifold, in life. real.
But, in a film industry that has vilified women who don’t want children enormously in the past, at the risk of coming across as cliché, Sara is definitely a breath of fresh air.
