Dekh Le (Video)


In director Ketan Rana’s YouTube film “Dekh Le,” he presents four scenarios in which a man is ogling a woman because of her physical appearance — her beauty, body, or clothing. While the women noticeably display their discomfort, the men do not discontinue their obvious leers. However, the story shifts when each man is forced to stare at his own reflection and confront the lascivious manner in which he stares at the woman. Rana’s film emphasizes the way women are sexualized every day just because of their gender, and his incorporation of reflection reminds viewers to think about the effects of their actions before they commit them.
