Rajesh Mapuskar’s debut directorial Ferrari Ki Sawaari from the Vinod Chopra Camp has a lot of history and culture attached to it. Not only does it bring back memories of the time when scooters like the Chetak used in the movie were more popular, but it also sheds a lot of light in the Parsee culture and society.
Ferrari Ki Sawaari starring Sharman and Boman Irani, is a story showcasing three generations of Parsees. The film brilliantly portrays the lifestyle of the ordinary Parsee family. It also breaks away many stereotypical ideologies based on the Parsee community. The very fact that Sharman is seen donning clothes other than the stereotypical and a ‘whiteband-galla’ kind of coat is the biggest example of Parsees being stereotyped all the time. The movie also broke the myth of Parsees essentially being portrayed as ‘Bawas’ in the society.
The movie will surely be an eye opener for all of us towards the Parsee society. We are waiting for the movie to release to see what other stereotypes the movie breaks.
