Hi I'm Nirali and I'm not ashamed to say that I'm hard-core, not-a-day-passes-without-a-reference, rewatches-every-Sunday fan of the cult classic, Kabhi Khushi Kabhie Gham. And my favourite character is obviously Poo.
And I honestly and sincerely believe that if you look past first impressions, you will find that she is an actual feminist icon who took what she wanted and apologised to no one.
And if Poo is the model progressive woman, this halter-top-wearing, father's-money-flaunting, continuously-crying, slut-shaming man-child is the fuckboy that ruins everything.
Look I understand. This boy has had a TRAGIC life growing up overweight and being abandoned by his brother while going to the best schools in the country, living at Hogwarts, commuting via helicopter and being a cricket star. But WHAT'S HIS PROBLEM?
Let's start small with the small annoying things he does, like hijacking a dance performance.
And wiggling his head like that.
WHO HAS ALLOWED YOU TO BE NEAR THESE GENTLE SPEECHLESS BABIES WHO CAN'T DEFEND THEMSELVES?
Even though I might have recently realised how much Rohan sucks, this scene filled me with anger even as a child.
Cut to the first time Rohan meets Poo and pulls the classic fuckboy move of ignoring her so she wants him.
And even though Poo is strong and fabulous, she falls for the trap, like the best of us.
Here he is seen indulging in some pretty heavy "negging". According to Urban Dictionary it means, "Low-grade insults meant to undermine the self-confidence of a woman so she might be more vulnerable to your advances."
It works and he's in. But he's still at it. This girl hasn't eaten all day for him and he dgaf.
He straight up YAWNS at this vision of a woman. How dare you?
He constantly gives out mixed signals and confuses tf out of humari Poo.
And while all these can be classified as harmless love games, this slut-shaming and making her conform to patriarchal society's standards of the "sanskari woman" is properly wrong.
The noble cause of trying to get his family together (and maybe his hotness) might make you feel unreasonable sympathy towards this massive douche-canoe...
But don't forget that when it comes to his thinking and attitude, he isn't far from his mega-regressive villain dad.
