More about Barbie

Greta Gerwig, the director of Barbie, became the first female director to helm a film that grossed over $1 billion at the global box office. Apart from Margot Robbie as Barbi and Ryan Gosling as Ken, the film boasts an ensemble cast that includes America Ferrera, Simu Liu, Dua Lipa, Emerald Fennell, Issa Rae, Kate McKinnon, Michael Sheen, and Will Ferrell. The movie’s premise revolves around Barbi and Ken getting expelled from Utopian Barbi Land due to not fitting the ideal doll standards and embarking on a journey of self-discovery in the real world.

A part of the Hindustan Times review of the film states, “Pink is an environment of curious mimicry, a curious mimicry for a satire. Greta does not criticise Mattel for its choices in the co-production and marketing of Barbi. Commercial decisions, but in one scene, the production house Warner Brothers also gets a dig for mishandling Zack Snyder’s Justice League. Nevertheless, at a point, satire appears self-defeating. After Barbi, it is Ken’s leadership that vilifies them, stirring them against each other, strengthening the belief that women are the reason men fight each other.”

In an interview with Fandango, star Margot Robbie had doubted they could ever make a Barbie-like film. She said, “When I read the script, I thought, ‘This is brilliant, and they’ll never let us make it.’ It’s so subversive that it’s going to get completely ruined. Just because it’s not that the film is unexpected, but that Greta has pushed it in that direction. I didn’t think they’d let us go inside. A big part of it was accepting what people had a problem with Barbie, and also what people loved about Barbie.
