Case studies across the globe have chronicled cases of “Corrective Rape” on women who’ve been discovered to be lesbians and as heinous as it may sound – the immediate kith and kin of the girl permit strangers to let the girl get raped, foolishly assuming that that is the only corrective measure for their girl to be cured from lesbianism and she will start thinking “normally”.
This film has no intention of disrespecting any culture or tradition of any clan or belief, however if the film manages to open a debate about the tragic realities it speaks about and changes the mindset of at least a few individuals, it could be termed a success.
“Satyavati” will stand a story of example of why we need to understand each other on levels of “Humanity” more, than inclining our existence on misconstrued and judgmental rules of some traditional influence or preaching of pre-historic literary references.
