Do women have a voice till date: Rituparna Sengupta

Kolkata, July 18 (IBNS) Having affirmed how she has changed over the years from the days of her debut making film "Swet Pathorer Thala", actress Rituparna Sengupta says her portrayal of 1890-era character Kadambi in under production "Teen Anka" shows the situation of women has never changed over centuries.
"I essay a character which shows how from one century to another the situation of women has remained unchanged in the core. I represent the Brahmo Samaj days but do women have a voice till this date," Rituparna says on-location shoot of the film.

“I enact an ordinary woman who is possessed by extraordinary desire. I have the rebellious streak to stand up against the society. I am the figurehead of protest from one century to another,” Rituparna says.

“I mirror the societal mental make-up. I am a rebellious, emancipated woman in the superstition-driven 19th century village while I become the conscience in two other remaining stories set in the 60s and 2015,” she says.

Complimented about her embroiderd saree and long sleeve blouse look for the 1890 era shoot, Rituparna smiles, “The art director has worked out in great details to perfect the look of that period."

Observing independence in real term remained very much important for every woman, Rituparna says: “But while independence was a paradox for the 19th century or even 20th century women, as we keep getting more freedom in the present age, we need to be vigilant against its misuse."

“The three embodiments of me- one in person and two others  through conscience of the other female lead – define that change over in women’s status outwardly and yet again the unchanged situation at the core ”

Coming to her acting career, which had set forth from Sesh Pathorer Thala in 1992,, Rituparna says, “Many things have changed in the film industry. I myself have also changed. There are positive and negative changes in everywhere. And some had been drastic changes,” Rituparna, who had delivered consecutive commercial and arthouse cinema hits,
says.
