Kalki Koechlin is known as an edgy and unapologetic actress who never fears to speak her mind. This time, she has written and performed an inspiring poem ‘The Printing Machine’ for a web series called Unblushed. Her rhythmic monologue expresses strong view points against sexism and the factory-like mechanism of the Indian media.
The catch phrase ‘tak tak taka daka dak’, symbolizes the monotonous tap taping of typewriters in media houses. The poetry covers almost every aspect of the morally dormant media. Sensationalization, discrimination, and intolerance, it covers it all! Kalki hints towards some of the gory events that shattered the nation, and how beauty endorsements and pitiful gossips swapped some equally scary and brutal events that took place in India.
Kalki looks beautifully flawed in her ‘unblushed’ avatar. She proudly flaunts her freckles in the video to stand by her message. Her poignant poetry is soul-stirring and some parts of the video will surely give you goosebumps.
