I am Cinderella. Your Majesty, I am no princess. I have no carriage, no parents, no dowry, I do not even know if that beautiful slipper will fit. But, if it does, will you take me as I am? An honest country girl who loves you.
A cold-blooded predatory couple while cruising the streets in search of their next victim, will stumble upon a 17-year-old high school girl, who will be sedated, abducted and chained in the strangers’ guest room.
All those days, chasing down a daydream.
All those years, living in a blur.
All that time, never truly seeing things the way they were.
Now she’s here, shining in the starlight.
Now she’s here, suddenly I know.
If she’s here, it’s crystal clear.
I’m where I’m meant to go.
Tell me I'm not the only one who hates Chennai Express. On top of all the offensive stuff they've used Kerala aesthetics all over a movie set in Tamilnadu. South India is just one big stereotype to bollywood.
You and 95% of all South Indians, my friend- myself included. The internalised racism is strong in Rohit Shi/etty I assure you. As far as Bollywood is concerned everything below the border of Maharashtra is just one big cultural clump. I guess that’s part of the reason (another being the ridiculing of the culture of said clump) as to why so many South Indians seem dissatisfied with mainstream Bollywood nowadays- again, myself included. But we’ll just keep powering on regardless of what they think of us.
