My Family as Movie Stars

Courtesy: Googles.
Muti Thrishing is a Bhutanese movie.  As you can see on the cover, it has its English equivalent title, "Perfect Girl". Its relatively an old movie. I don't remember when it got released, but I liked the movie for many reasons. In the movie, the lead female actress, Sonam Choki, I think out did, lead male actor, Tshering Gyeltshen by miles. Her acting was superb. Somehow the role suited her looks and the accent.

 I will not write more about the movie here. But if you want to find out more then read this link

Coming back to the reasons for liking the movies, Firstly it was shot in my native place. Shingkhar. Honestly there are not many sights that pleases me more than the sight of my own beautiful birth place. The sereneness and the radiance of my village are always breathtakingly beautiful. I have already seen good number of movies being made in my village. No doubt, many more Bhutanese film makers now fancy making movies in my village. Perhaps this explains how beautiful my village is.

Secondly, it conveys a very important social message. Although little exaggerated, it shows how unfavorable situation and circumstances forces an ordinary village girl into prostitution. More than that it shows how men have created this social disease called prostitution. The Movie shows how weak men are at controlling their desire for coital pleasures!

Under the shadow of some affluent and upper strata people, the movie also shows the difficulties faced by those innocent and weaker section of society. The way they are abused by people with money and power are startlingly shocking and way too disgusting. Many people, while watching the movie must have cursed "Bumthap Gaari SIngye" for his infamous role in the movie as a rich man of the village.

Third and the most important reason for liking the movie is that my family, back home played a very big role in  the making of this super hit movie. I don't know how TG media wooed all my family members into acting. But I was thoroughly touched to see all my beloved people in tears.

To me, I found  their acting way above Hollywood standard. At first I went wordless. Later it brought some sense. I came to know that they were not acting! As far as the a facts go, I heard that film crew got my family when they were observing one of the rituals honoring my dead uncle. I don't know which one but some people say it was on my late uncle's 21st day ritual. My uncle died a sad death away from his loved ones. When I Think of him. it still aches my heart. I feel bitter. 

But knowing that people have used those sad moments of my family for their economic gains is still more painful and aching. As a family member, the only solace I get by watching these scenes is that, people have at least used my late uncle's special moments to convey a very important social message. All I can say is that, my family played their social roles so well and so I hope they have also availed economic benefit consumerate to their contributions.

As you said, although your are unhappy with the film crew for utilising family moments of genuine grievance for economic purpose, u have every reason to b happy as the movie conveys a very important social message. Nice post sir as always. Keep writing and happy weekend la! :)

  3. Love to hear that your family too was the part of Mutithrishing. It is an awesome movie the way back in 2006. It was first of its kind and some more followed its trend. I feel that our Tshering Gyeltshen is a bhutanese Amir Khan because his production is unique among the Bhutanese.
