Richa Chadha takes on politics and patriarchy in Madam Chief Minister
Richa Chadha plays Tara Roop Ram, a Dalit girl in Uttar Pradesh who dreams of a career in politics. The trailer of the movie opens with Chadha staring at a statue of BR Ambedkar, known for campaigning against social discrimination. The trailer moves on to show the protagonist’s feistiness, as she engages in fisticuffs with boys. The scenes set the stage for what to expect from the movie and character.
At its core, Madam Chief Minister is about a runaway Dalit girl’s struggle to rise beyond her caste, gender, and the opportunities that a traditional rural life may offer her. Taking on patriarchy not just in society but politics as well, it charts her rise and success, and the struggles and pitfalls that come with it. Caste- and religion-based politics, murky dealings, and personal loss all come together as themes in the movies.
Madam Chief Minister recently came under fire for its first poster, which has now been retracted. The poster showed Chadha’s character holding a broom, with the word ‘untouchable’ featured prominently. The imagery was accused of stereotyping the Dalit community, for which the 34-year-old actress also reportedly received threats of violence.
The film has been directed by Subhash Kapoor, known for Jolly LLB and Phas Gaye Re Obama
