The gruesome gang rape of a 23-year old physiotherapist in New Delhi, which has kicked up a nation-wide outrage, has stirred the hearts of several poets and authors across the nation. For the last two weeks, there have been a number of poems and blog postings by poets and authors.
The ghastly incident has provided yet another subject for film makers to exploit it commercially. There is a talk going on in the media circles that noted film maker Ram Gopal Varma, known for his maverick themes based on real-life incidents, might have already started preparing a script for producing the film based on the Delhi gang rape incident.
“If at all anybody has the ability to produce a film on this episode, it is Ram Gopal Varma. Only he has the guts to make such a film. Who knows, he can as well come up with some ideas to punish the guilty. And he is not bothered whether such a film will be commercially hit or not,” says a film critic in the media.
Are you listening, Mr Varma?
