F for fat: A documentary and a film about what it means to be a large woman

The movies are clear on the issue of body mass. If men are bulky, they need to be display evidence of treadmill time and protein shakes. Women, of course, must be svelte or, at, best curvy. Fat people can only be bit-part actors, the objects of ridicule, or villainous types who are too busy being criminals to watch the weighing scale.

Two new films challenge this taboo on depicting an unacceptable body types. Saba Rehman’s recent documentary, The F Word, records her attempts to lose weight and regain confidence in her self-image. Sharat Katariya’s movie, Dum Laga Ke Haisha, produced by Yash Raj Films and being released on February 27, is about a thin man who is compelled by economic circumstances to marry a woman several times his size.
