Satyaprem Ki Katha

The Long Take

Aug 26 2023 • 26 mins

Satyaprem Ki Katha, the new Kartik Aaryan and Kiara Advani movie, left us incensed.

We discuss the many ways in which the movie is actively anti-feminist; its horrific treatment of Advani’s character, the obvious perspective problem, and its casual disregard for very real, and very delicate themes.

We also talk about its triggering tone, the film’s last-minute rug-pull, and the potentially dangerous ideas that it propagates about retribution.

But we lose all hope when we consider the mostly positive reactions that the film received upon its theatrical release.
