New Delhi : ‘Chrr tak tak taka daka tak chree… goes the steady printing machine’ begins actor Kalki Koechlin with a monologue that quickly took the social media by storm.
The five-minute long video, showing the 32-year-old narrating a self-written poem titled ‘The Printing Machine’, needs to be heard by all.
The ‘Dev D’ star has always made a pretty clear and bold statement on feminism and the need for equal rights for women. This time with her rhythmic and scathing satire, Kalki takes on the media and its portrayal of violence against women.
In one of her edgiest avatars, the ‘Margarita With a Straw’ actress performed in a way that churns your stomach and makes you think about the times you read about a woman getting brutally raped or harassed and the way you just moved on, to another piece of news.
Kalki’s powerful message has been received well online and the video is already trending on Twitter.
Youtube marked it to be “probably one of the most stirring invective against a culture that maybe going morally numb, one newspaper edition at a time. Kalki Koechlin performs a self written poem titled ‘The Printing Machine’: a rhythmic and scathing satire against daily broadsheets, magazines, social media and textbooks”.
‘The Printing Machine’ has been produced by ‘Blush’, a social media platform that claims to celebrate everything to do with women. The video is part of their #Unblushed series which earlier featured actors like Nimrat Kaur and Sayani Gupta. (ANI)^
