A film, which adds a completely new perspective towards the problem of girl foeticide in the country.
22 August 2010 | by (India) – See all my reviews

First of all I would like to mention that this particular film has been added to the "Must See Movies" list here, solely on the basis of its novel story plot which has its own importance and power to change the sick mindsets of families who are only interested in having a boy child from their daughters-in-law.

The film belongs to the HORROR genre and is strictly okay as far as its direction, performances, music and execution is concerned. There are no worth watching special effects nor any great shocking scenes in its narration. But if we look into the hidden potential present in its fresh story idea, then the movie possibly can be used as an important tool against a burning problem in the country dealing with the merciless killing of the girl child before her birth.

Just think of a case where a husband and wife decide to abort their girl child due to their willingness to have a boy instead. Now years later when they do have a boy child, out of a sudden, a spirit starts haunting the kid and the whole family in some peculiar ways which remind the parent couple of their ugly past. Actually it's the spirit of that unborn girl child who has now returned only to make her parents realize their mistake of killing her while she was still developing in her mother's womb. She makes their life miserable and returns only after they ask for her mercy and realize their inhuman mistake from their heart.

Now, I agree that this may strengthen superstition, but when all other means have failed to stop this evil practice in our society, then why shouldn't we try this brilliant idea to scare all those devils who want to kill their daughters' right in the wombs. At least this thought will frighten them of having an insecure future and they would not dare to take this step thinking about its scary consequences.

Though in the present movie, the couple aborts the girl child due to their career prospects but nevertheless it clearly gives out an ultimatum to anyone watching that if they also ever took this kind of deliberate decision in their life, then they should be ready to face the trauma as suffered by the couple in the film.

"Gauri – the Unborn" is also recommended for its final 15 minutes, when the spirit of the unborn girl questions her parents that what was her mistake and then explains her pain of not being given a chance to live. While moving away she asks them for their permission to let her come to meet them whenever she needs their love. The scene is capable of transforming even the coldest heart and will right away bring tears to every male or female watching the movie.

And for the viewers, who would like to argue that how's this possible…, the answer is given by Anupam Kher, who acts as the grandfather of the child in the film. In his words, "If Abhimanyu can listen & learn, the art of entering the Chakravyuh while he was still in his mother's womb then why can't the girl child hear all about your plans of brutally killing her right from the inside".

Do watch and recommend it to all your friends, if you like and support the idea of using the movie against this social evil of our society.
