SATYAMEV JAYATE episode 3: Aamir Khan exposes horror of dowry death

Aamir Khan keeps the shock value down yet makes an impact

Satyamev Jayate dealt with the ill-effects of dowry in its third episode. You may say this topic has been covered innumerable times but Aamir Khan does it in a surprisingly different, more refreshing way. The horrifying images of women burnt over dowry that we expected are not shown. Unlike the first two episodes, he keeps the shock value and tear jerking elements to the minimum and chooses to deal with the topic through a positive approach. He shows that the dowry system is prevalent across the nation (except north eastern states), social strata and religion. The evil of dowry is all-pervasive, yet it is not impossible to fight it. That’s the message he gives through the third episode of Satyamev Jayate.

Aamir focuses on the ways to combat this evil and emphasises that the best way to do this is by empowering women. He doesn’t hold anyone guilty nor does he even mention the laws that have been formulated to end the crime. Dowry is a social evil and can be ended only when the men, women, their families and the members of each and every community come together and take a stand against it. Not once does he condemn the women and their families for giving dowry but he does urge other parents to not do it. It’s a fine line that he walks on and Aamir does it with sympathy and finesse. Kudos once again to the Khan.
