Why is Karanam Malliswari biopic is as important as Mahanati?

Karanam Malliswari, Olympic Champion from Telugu states made history in 2000 Olympics by winning bronze medal in Women Weightlifting. She did it with all odds against her due to her pure belief and determination.

In a day and age, when feminism is misconstrued as speaking senselessly and trying to shout at the top of their lungs, her story will be a great example for women empowerment. She might get a film like Dangal to celebrate her career or something half-baked like Mary Kom, but her story is needed to be heard and seen.

She is almost forgotten like Ashwini Nachappa and weightlifting lost its merit in Indian sports as wrestling, badminton, shooting took central stage. It is important to take these three fields forward along with track & field events, weightlifting too.

The stories of such women will not just inspire women but men too. It is important for India to look at China, Australia who use those available resources well enough to come up with best athletes to win medals for their countries.

Mahanati is a gripping story about how women can achieve everything under the sun and still feel vulnerable. The story asks women to not fall prey for false prestiges, fake relationships while seeking for what they want from life.

Story of Karanam Malliswari should be able to deliver the same with much positive hope and as the Telugu legend did it even though she was under the clutches of poverty, it should encourage many more to look at life in a positive way, especially under the circumstances, we are living in.
