Of all the actress' of Bollywood's bouffant 70s era Jaya
Bachchan (Bhaduri) would be the one voted; "Most Likely
to be the Girl you Take Home to Meet Mom and Dad". She
has that genuine and sincere quality that the parent's love
There is a fortitude and level-headedness in her gaze and
demeanor. She displays a silent refined non-plussed intelligence.
The plot my be throwing Jaya for a loop through seemingly insurmountable
odds but the quiet gaze of her often downcast eyes presents
us with a mind actively (internally) searching for solutions
as opposed to a spirit victimized and submissive. One could
misinterpret her demeanor as submissive and victimized but there
is decorum in her manner that transcends such stereotypes and
elevates it to a silent dignity backed by integity of spirit.
Jaya Bhaduri from"Kore Kagaz" (1974)
Bhaduri from "Zanjeer" (1973)
Jaya Bhaduri from "Ek Nazar" (1972)
Bhaduri from "Jawani Diwani (1972)
Then Jaya cries and Jaya weeps and Jaya pleads and remonstrates.
Jaya speaks her sensible words to a listening audience and more
often than not the un-hearing ears on the screen itself. The
lover's wish, the daughter's insight, the wife's truth that
fall on seemingly deaf ears. Words that are spun into the violent
wheel of life (and Bollywood plot) and are bounced to the petty
wayside. Until the end when the truth comes out. She is the
particle of reason in a world generated by emotion and desire
that she is also enexticably caught up in. This is the character
of Jaya Bhaduri in Bollywood. One could also say she is the
achetype of the Indian woman.
