How many times one has to think an alternative for the word sex? A bit too many times. Or till what age did you think that kissing can impregnate a female? Probably till junior college. These are a few of the questions that every person can relate to. In a country where discussing sex is a taboo, it shouldn't come across as a surprise. However, there are some people who have always known about the importance of sex education and Ask The Sexpert is the story of one man who plays a rather large role in educating the country, Dr. Mahindra Watsa.
The Background and Story:
If the name of the movie doesn't make you recall something then you are not reading your share of the newspaper. Yes, this movie follows the writer of one of the most famous columns of the country – Ask The Sexpert, in Mirror. Dr. Mahindra Watsa has been answering the strangest of questions with dry wit and advising and helping as many as he could since decades of his career as a doctor. However, his answers have led him to be charged with obscenity by an activist named Pratibha Naitthani as she believes he is corrupting young minds.
Educating the population about something as natural as sex is considered absurd by many. With no comprehensive sex education available to one-third of the states in the country, there are very few resources to reach out for the right knowledge. Dr. Watsa is one name who has given sex education a good name in this country. Directed by Vaishali Sinha who is well known for her documentary Made in India, this one throws light upon Dr. Watsa's non-judgemental approach and contribution so far.
Why You Should Watch:
First of all, for many of us who have always wondered if that column was actually answered by a person, this is the answer. Yes, he exists and is real. He is the genuine most person you could think of to be approached with your query. Watch this film to know how different people have entirely different opinion on the same thing. To know more about the doctor who is no less than a revolution himself. To educate yourself a little and open up about something that is the most basic instinct of a living being. Dr. Mahindra Watsa will assure you that It's Normal.
What You Should Watch Next:
If you liked Ask The Sexpert or have interest in documentaries based on real stories then films like A Very Old Man With Enormous Wings or Returning To The First Beat might interest you.
