This Women’s Day, the Internet was positively bursting with content on all things feminine and angsty. Much of it got together as a collective voice of protest. One such feisty video that went viral was How Much Cleavage Is Good Cleavage?, starring Taapsee Pannu and Swara Bhaskar. There is no plot here that takes you on a spin—just beautifully shot close-ups of the two exceptionally talented actors as they share their take on the many ingenious ways in which women should cover their bodies. Obviously, a satirical slap on the face of all those who insist ‘women ask for it’, the slickly shot video is enjoyable enough. Though one has to admit that there was nothing exceptional in the way the message was driven home—most women have had such sarcastic jabs at the society often enough. One ought to give credit to the makers, however, for the excellent choice of casting. The two actors have the kind of faces that one would find easily more riveting for the intelligence and strength that they exude. Anyone vanilla in the same spot would have had a hard time driving the video to viral proportions.
