Cinema is experimenting with new subjects: Deepti Naval
Veteran actress Deepti Naval, who is known for portraying strong characters onscreen, says Hindi cinema is going through its best phase now where strong content is part of the mainstream.
Deepti, 55, who was one of the prominent faces of parallel cinema in the 70s' and 80s', said now cinema often talks about the social and political issues which were never discussed earlier.
"In our times, cinema used to be innocent and they didn't have a technically sharp language. But now, content is strong in films and they have become mainstream. Cinema is experimenting with subjects. Films like 'Vicky Donor' and 'Inkaar' have discussed those issues which we never thought of bringing on the silver screen.
"The society has opened up now. Issues about a person's sexuality is coming out of the closet. People are ready to acknowledge it and address it. Relevant issues are being talked about in films," Deepti told .
The actress will be seen in a lead role after a long time in the upcoming 'Listen Amaya'. Directed by debut filmmaker Avinash Kumar Singh, the film is about the relationship between a widow and her daughter and what happens when the mother falls in love with a man.
Deepti said she agreed to be a part of the film because the film has explored an untouched subject in Hindi Cinema.
"The premise of the film is very interesting. Since nobody has tackled the subject before, so I decided to be a part of the project. It is a subtle, sensitive film about the bond between a mother and daughter. It's a new area to explore when it comes to Hindi films. Its a day-to-day story of our life and told in an interesting and light vain," she said.

Inkaar is a commendable work of cinema that brings to the fore some serious issues concerning the corporate culture. Through the microcosmic world of an advertisement agency, Mishra presents to us the pitiful tale of human detachment thatís slowly becoming a reality. Inkaar with its slow character development, ambiguous themes, and deceptive direction is ought to disappoint an average viewer whose sole purpose is entertainment, but an intelligent viewer who is patient enough to wait for the different layers to unwrap will be rewarded.
