PINK Is Social Thriller - Big B

Dear Amitji

“No it is not women empowerment .. no it is not on rape .. it is a social thriller and one that touches upon many aspects of what morals and society norms and practices women in our city and in our country go through .. “
-  (DAY - 3085)

Sir, hats off to you for achieving what no one in the world ever achieved, not even Abhishek Bachchan, who broke the guinness’ world record for maximum public appearances in 12 hours while promoting his film Delhi - 6:

“Abhishek Bachchan breaks Guinness record
IANS, Mumbai |  Updated: Feb 23, 2009 19:52 IST

Abhishek Bachchan broke the Guinness' world record for maximum public appearances in 12 hours while promoting his latest film Delhi 6.
Abhishek Bachchan's whirlwind, record-breaking tour of Delhi and neighbouring cities began two days later than scheduled, but was packed with record breaker chock-a-block post-release flurry of activities.”

If Abhishek’s whirlwind, record-breaking tour for promotion of his film deserved to be recorded in Guinness book of records, surely, your feat of promoting your forthcoming film PINK in the widest possible area with the smallest number of words - Pink is a social thriller - is worthy of being recorded in Guinness Book of Records in the category of using the minimum number of words to achieve maximum promotion for a film. Sir, it is unimaginable how the above quote from your Blog was picked up instantly by every prominent paper and channel and splashed in bold headlines:

And hundreds of more media websites and Press reports published worldwide splashed your words to create renewed biggest buzz for any movie releasing within a week could ever achieve. The media not only gave multi-column headline to your one liner, but also reproduced the full text pertaining to PINK from your post. Not only this, some even opined on the meaning of your message - “Pink is a social thriller”:
“In social thrillers the conflict between the main characters is mental and emotional, rather than physical. Characters, either by accident or their own curiousness, are dragged into a dangerous conflict or situation that they are not prepared to resolve. Characters are not reliant on physical strength to overcome their brutish enemies, but rather are reliant on their mental resources. This sub-genre usually has elements of drama, as there is an in-depth development of realistic characters who must deal with emotional struggles.  Megastar Amitabh Bachchan says his forthcoming film "Pink" is neither about women's empowerment nor on rape but a social thriller and one that touches upon many aspects of what morals and society norms and practices women in India experience.”
Yet some others tried to explain what to expect from a social thriller:
“Nail-biting suspense which does not allow you to rest your mind and keeps you thinking hours after the film is over could be the correct description of a social thriller film.”
“Social thriller is mainly a thriller which emphasizes on the psychology of its characters and their unstable emotional state. They suck the viewer in completely and you go through a roller-coaster of theories while the film is on and pull the rug from under your feet when you least expect it.”
Let me conclude with the report that really is praiseworthy for its truth:
“Amitabh Bachchan is yet proving again he is the ocean of talent when it comes to acting & entertainment. What a mind blowing this man is ! He reiterates very clearly that the proverb is 100 % true i,e. Old Is Gold. He has so much energy at this age that it’s too difficult for the young actors to compete against him in acting. Amitabh Bachchan’s eyes speak it all.
He is coming again in his upcoming movie whose name is PINK. It is a social thriller that reflects on the dubious morals of today’s times. Amitabh Bachchan is playing a role of a lawyer who is interrogating a girl who was victimized & molested by any lustful man. It is made by the makers of PIKU & VICKY DONOR. But in movie it is still a suspense whether the girl was wrong or she was victimized by others. After watching the trailer we are also as much blank as you are. In order to find the complete story, we also will go to watch the complete movie. It is going to release in Theatres on 16th September, 2016.”

With regards and best wishes for PINK
