Brahma Janen Gopon Kommoti is the latest Bengali movie that's been raking up sales at the box office. The film has been getting a lot of attention as well as good responses from the audience. It happens to be director Aritira Mukherjee's debut film and it looks like she did a pretty good job. The movie highlights gender inequality in society today and it's getting a lot of nods from audiences. But even with the best films, some people still don't think so highly of it and the same goes for this one. In any case, it's good to know that a lot of people seem to support this film rather than oppose it. How can you not support a movie that shows the real face of a male-dominant society where females have to follow unwillingly? Brahma Janen Gopon Kommoti is all about that and more. It's a women-centric film that portrays the daily struggles of women. The movie displays how women have to sacrifice a lot of their dreams and aspirations because of boastful rituals and traditions. On top of that, they even get criticized by a male-driven society because of their profession. It's a good thing that Windows production made this movie possible with the social relevance that it offers. Starring famed actors such as Ritabhari Chakraborty and Soham Majumdar, no wonder it's doing great at the box office. These are just some out of the many other reasons why this film is a must-watch.

Soham Majumder, who plays the male lead in the film, believes that it will ignite dialogues when it comes to the social stigmas that women face to this day. Situations like women needing permission before making a decision or they need to be married before reaching a certain age are just some of the examples of these stigmas. Brahma Janen Gopon Kommoti plays an important role in spreading awareness regarding these issues.
The film's story revolves around Shabari who's both a lecturer and a performing artist. But that isn't her only professions, she also happens to be a woman priest. When Vikramaditya proposed to her, she tells him about the multiple identities that she has. In doing so, she was forced to keep one important part of her life a secret because of the sheer difference of her pre-marriage and post-marriage life. It makes you wonder about the outdated rites and rituals as well as gender inequality in society.
Shiboprosad Mukherjee, the director and co-producer of the film, says that for them every day is 'Women's Day.' The production company Windows celebrates the occasion with a women-oriented film every year. According to them, Brahma Janen Gopon Kommoti offers a very important message and has a unique concept. Along with the film comes a new director, a new screenplay writer, and a new on-screen couple that fans should definitely be excited for.
Unlike other films in the past, this is the first film to feature a female priest as the protagonist. Priests are mostly known for setting up a connection with god and it's unfair that only males get to do this job. Aside from women, males from other castes aren't allowed o perform the rituals. Brahma Janen Gopon Kommoti speaks out against this kind of discrimination. Shabari questions the role of priests in society and she starts by breaking age-old traditions.
Ritabhari Chakraborty who plays Shabari, the lead character of the film, believes in her character's core values. They made the premise of the whole movie so engaging that she was immediately on-board. There are a lot of talks about breaking menstrual taboos as well as the equality of man and woman in a marriage and eve rituals like kanyadaan. But some of them prove to be demeaning are only followed due to tradition. That's why it's bold and ambitious to tackle topics like menstruation, especially in a family film.
