Only one word sums up Chaarfutiya Chhokare‘s trailer: Disturbing. In every sense of word, the trailer is heart breaking. Watching on screen the fate of young lives, being smashed and shattered might be depressing but these are the bare realities unleashed. Veteran actress Seema Biswas brings to the trailer, a conspicuous rawness as she tells Soha Ali Khan that she had not given birth to ‘gunda’ kids. But as the trailer advances, the harsh realities of Bihar dawns on Soha.
The film tells the story of a young NRI woman who comes back to her native village. Surrounded by miscreants, she witnesses social hierarchies which leads to grotesque exploitation eventually. The lower fragments of the society falls prey easily to sexual exploitation and child trafficking. While Soha decides on putting an end to all of it alone, her job isn’t even remotely easy. In a rough scene towards the end, a bunch of men are seen ripping off her shirt.
But that doesn’t take away that the trailer has its tender moments. One of the kids tell her how he would have married her if she were younger, is sweet! India in the last few years has been faced with persistent violence against women and children and this trailer brings out the chauvinistic thinking in its most ascent form. The trailer might end on a hopeful note of Soha pointing a gun but the picture painted is a rather grim one with no solace!
