Mr. Perfectionist Aamir Khan is back with another dose of hard hitting realities of the divided Indian Society, with the second season of his reality show – ‘Satyamev Jayate’. Whether you are a nationalist or not, social activist or not, this series aims to hit you where it matters. Conceived with the sole agenda of creating awareness on various social and political issues that have plagued the country, the show also gives some valuable incites on remedial actions.
Aamir Khan had created high expectations among the people with the first series highlighting various issues like domestic violence, inefficiency of medicine industry, etc. With the first episode premiering recently and centering around the issue of rapes and social degradation of women, Satyamev Jayate turns out to be a real tear-jerker yet again.
The first episode takes the cue from the shameful spectacle of 16th December 2012 that brought people out on streets to protest for Nirbhaya who was brutally raped by four men in a moving bus on the streets of Delhi . The movement shook the whole nation and Aamir Khan poignantly portrays the agony of raped women in India in the series premiere. The episode reflected how a victim of a rape is treated as a criminal in our society and numerous discrepancies haunting our judicial system, law and order and the medical industry that often delays the dispensation of justice for several decades after a girl is raped.
It is advised to sit with a box of tissues while hearing the narratives of victims featured on the show, they will truly compel you to revise your beliefs about the progressive Indian society.
While the first episode deserves all the praise and approval of the people to know all the facts of various problems of one facet of the problems that have infected the country, the series definitely appears promising to lift the curtain off people’s eyes to know the present real situation. However, there is a school of thought that believes, the show puts more effort and energy in showcasing the problems in a grandly sensitive manner, while doing less to provide concrete solutions.
Make a watch, take a stand!
