Man-Woman EquationWith Jodhaa-Akbar making waves for the on-screen chemistry between Hrithik Roshan and Aishwarya Rai, its worth taking a look at the factors that go into a strong woman’s surrender to the man whom she recognizes as her partner or soul mate. The film has been criticized for being too long and drawn the usual protests from interested parties for its alleged historical inaccuracies, but at least it makes us think once again about the union of two proud and independent spirits.

For a strong woman, the almost lifelong dilemma is not to find the ideal man, but the man strong enough to take her as his partner, without feeling threatened or insecure. In many women’s lives, such a man is never found, and they have to settle for a compromise, losing some of their vitality, and becoming bitter and brittle in the process. For other women who have stayed true to their own natures in spite of the many hurdles in their path, the rewards may come in a surprising form, but they do arrive. Sometimes, the efforts for such self-determination may be so difficult to sustain that they require being single long after one’s friends and classmates are all married. Such women acquire the respect and admiration of peers and colleagues, and may have to make do with this till they find true companions. Total integrity in one’s dealings with others, and most of all, in the visible manifestation of one’s own nature, will draw similar spirits – even though this seems to be taking forever.

Preity Zinta in advertisementThe woeful effects of Team India’s dismal performance at the cricket World Cup, and the shenanigans of the BCCI in their search for a coach have begun to show results. Whichever product you turn to these days, a film star is endorsing it. Hrithik Roshan dances to the Sony Ericsson tune and learns to bake Milano biscuits just so (clever story line to match his near-Italian looks!). Amitabh Bachchan does a hilarious oily UP peon act for Navratna hair oil. Shah Rukh and Saif, Preity Zinta and Rani Mukherjee – everyone is more in evidence on TV these days, and the Dhonis, Harbahajans, Dravids and Tendulkars are getting rarer and rarer.

Hrithik in Dhoom 2My seventy-three year old mother’s reaction after seeing ‘Dhoom 2’ was the best of all. ‘Poor Abhishek!’ she said in a compassionate vein. ‘He didn’t even have good shirts to wear!’ While my daughter and I laughed uproariously at this pithy summary of the great Abhishek Bachchan – Hrithik Roshan rivalry that has currently taken Bollywood by storm, I was also struck by another fact – even Amma is not immune to the particular brand of cool charm that Hrithik oozes in practically every frame of ‘Dhoom 2’. 

Justin Timberlake may have swept the music world and won a great many awards with his song ‘I’m bringing Sexy Back’, but today in India it is definitely Hrithik who’s riding the wave of a fresh burst of popularity after the heady days of his debut in ‘Kaho Na Pyaar Hai’. What has really contributed to this phenomenon? 

Well, of course, Hrithik’s perfect proportions and amazing dancing talent, plus the awesome stunts he has performed for ‘Dhoom 2’ certainly have something to do with it. But there are a great many smaller factors that are feeding the Hrithik frenzy that deserve mention. First among these is the innate goodness that seems to lurk in Hrithik’s green-brown eyes – a goodness that he showed in his very first film, that was such a refreshing departure from the tired mannerisms and cleverness of the then established Khans. With this endearingly human ‘good’ quality, Hrithik carries off even a villain’s role with the audience’s sympathy solidly with him.
