The Trailer For Amitabh Bachchan's "Pink" Is Here And It Tackles Sexist Victim-Blaming

"What clear indication did you give at the time that 'right now I'm not interested in sex'?"

The trailer for Amitabh Bachchan and Tapsee Pannu-starrer Pink just dropped.

Rising Sun Films

It follows the lives of three women who are on trial for the attempted murder of a group of influential men. Bachchan plays their lawyer.

The trailer shows how these men have mentally and physically assaulted Pannu's character and have tried to "teach her and her friends a lesson" for lodging a police complaint against them.

And it is uncomfortable to watch.

The film seems to address how sometimes, even the judicial system can have a messed up attitude towards women who have been victims of sexual assault. Hopefully, Pink would nudge the conversation about ending the trend of victim-blaming and character assassinations in the right direction.
