Soni Razdan and girl gang Gauahar Khan, Sayani Gupta, Maanvi Gagroo are coming together for ‘Kaali Peeli Tales’. The show will also feature Vinay Pathak, Sharib Hashmi, Hussain Dalal, Priyanshu Painyuli, Sadia Siddiqui, and Tanmay Dhananya among others.

The series captures the essence of love, relationships, and life in Mumbai and cover complex themes from infidelity, open marriage, homosexuality, commitment phobia, divorce to many others. All films are written and helmed by Adeeb Rais, formerly known for award-winning short films – ‘Aunty Ji starring Shabana Azmi, Baatein starring Supriya Pilgaonkar, a web series ‘Yeh Crazy Dil’ starring Zoa Morani, Lilette Dubey.

Talking about Kaali Peeli Tales, Adeeb says—

Each film has come from a very special place in my heart and has something unique to say. We haven’t shied away from bringing few important topics and showcasing some rather complex relationships through the films. Each of the films ends in an iconic Mumbai black and yellow (kaali peeli) taxi and that is a metaphor for the journey of life, which works as a common thread between each of the six films. Within the anthology, we’ve covered a gamut of emotions and showcased a mix of both relatable and slightly off-beat characters. There’s something for everyone to take home from this series.

When asked about the impressive line of up actors, Adeeb further adds—

Honestly, each of them are actors I personally love and admire and wished to work with. The fact that they have a huge following is just an add on. I have a personal equation with each of them and what connected them to the project was the purity in my intention behind telling each of the stories. They have all been very kind, supportive and I couldn’t feel more grateful. I can also vouch each of their fans are going to be very happy and satisfied with their performances. Figuring dates and logistics were a bit tricky at times, but eventually, things fell into place and it all feels really worth it. I’m currently enjoying my last leg of post-production and really excited to share our baby with the rest of the world. It’s purely all heart.

I am super excited about this one and sure can’t wait to see what the actors have in store for us!

The measure of any society is how it treats its women and girls” – Michelle Obama #boyslockerroom

The question is ‘How did we get here?’ Is it the systemic normalization of violence against women in our pop culture? Casual rape jokes? Dated yet a deeply internalized idea of ‘giving the daughter away in marriage’ or the widely accepted assertion of patriarchal ownership our rituals are ridden with?! Yes, misogyny begins at home. It seeps through our words. It’s reinstated through our actions & it is enabled through our gender-based morality. No, we cannot absolve ourselves of responsibility by blaming it all on bad parenting because this is not the first or the only time a ‘boys locker room’ has existed. And it sure as hell won’t be the last. We are all complicit. Every time you laugh at a sexist joke( sexism: noun; discrimination, prejudice or stereotyping on the basis of gender), every time you decide to save for your
daughter’s wedding but your son’s education, every time you ask a rape victim what she was
wearing and why she was out… every action of yours is potentially rewarding or punishing a
young mind for their words and actions.
Why do we continually keep linking a woman’s character to her body and what SHE decides to do
with it? And why don’t we see our men through that same lens of skewed rationality? Why have
we placed a woman’s ‘izzat’ in her vagina but no such yardstick for her male counterpart exists?!
We live in a society that accepts the assertion of patriarchy in more ways than we care to realize.
Male privilege is real and male entitlement, a real threat. We need to do better than this. We need
to bring our children up better. We need to adopt a Skinnerian model of punishing toxicity and
rewarding empathy. We are shaping minds with our thoughts, words, and actions. Every single
moment.
We have to do better. And ‘boys will be boys’ is just not gonna cut it anymore.
