Recently saw the trailer of a movie called The Memsahib and I was intrigued by the creative uses of the saree in the movie to connote different moods!
There is a scene where a white saree is flowing down the window, a scene where the main character turns herself in to “indian” by putting on a saree and the hidden subtext the saree provides is present throughout the trailer.
But the scene that I really liked was the ball room dancing scene where the main character seems to be doing a cha cha steps clad in a gorgeous multicolored saree.
Imagine an opulent hall in the Raj era, ornately appointed room, music playing in the background, women in their best gowns and guys in their sophisticated tux; now replace the western gowns with the sarees and see how visually exciting that scene would be!
Well, this site isn’t called Saree Dreams for nothing!
