Male and Female Roles In Movie, Slum Dog Millionaire In many movies, the male and female actors play major different roles. The movie I recently watched “The Slumlord Millionaire” had remarkable differences in the male and female actors. “Slumlord Millionaire” is based on a young man being a contender in the show “Who Wants To Be a Millionaire” and is accused of cheating. Showing the audience through out his life, Kamala the main character shows how sexism the Indian culture can be.
In the Psychology book sixth edition defines sexism as “Differential retirement of an individual on the basis of his or her sex” (Palladian, 419). For an example, the movie made noticeable of sexism, how much more dominate the men is. Also, the men constantly control the women in any way they prefer. Looking at the Latvia, the female actress was first a prostitute that was always looked downward on and then later became a slave for one of the biggest criminals. This shows that women do not have any respect and are treated basically like garbage.
In addition, the movie showed how the women are suppose to stay home and take care of the hillier, whereas the men have to go work hard and earn money to keep the household. Furthermore, the movie showed how Lance gave up and accepted the fact that she was never going to find Kamala while Kamala never gave up and gave everything up to find her. This also shows that how much weaker the female are then the male. In conclusion, “Slumlord Millionaire” did a wonderful Job In showing the differences of male roles and women roles and showed how much more dominant the men are in our society today.
