Watch the trailer of Aparajita Apu here:
Aparajita Apu’s protagonist Apu is a bright young girl, who hails from a patriarchal family background. Growing up, she experiences a lot of discrimination based on her gender, even from her own family. However, Apu’s determination to earn the deserving respect for herself and to work hard for it remains unbeaten. She strives to be the perfect and able daughter to her parents and wants to relieve them of all their stresses. Although she faces countless hurdles in the way of her journey to such dignity, respect and a non-discriminative life, Apu exudes tremendous will-power and courage all throughout.
As a protagonist, Apu stands out in everyone’s eyes when compared to others due to her endless strength to fight through injustice and bias. Unlike most other leading ladies of our all-time favourite television shows, Apu does not give in to any sort of discriminating or partial behaviour in life. She is very outspoken and never fails to take a stand when she faces any unjust behaviour. Apu immediately protests for herself and on the behalf of others at the intimation of any occurrence of gender bias or disrespect.
Apu is a competent and intelligent person who considers herself capable and sufficient enough to take on all sorts of work that other people usually consider to be a ‘man’s job.’ Despite Apu’s confidence and passion for life, her parents do end up not always agreeing to her belief of being a strong & independent girl, but Apu does not give in to these disbeliefs. A young woman, who does not allow peers, family or outsiders to put her down only on the basis of her gender, Apu is going to be an extremely interesting & unique character to watch as she goes about her life.
