Mississippi Masala Analysis

Good Essays
The scene in Mississippi Masala between Demetrius and Mina’s father demonstrates the controversy over interracial relationships in this world. A major point outlined in hooks’ essay is the idea of relations with the “Other” and how this can meet a desire for change and open up a world of difference. This applies to the scene as Mina’s father states he once tried to be different also, but the world isn’t so accepting of this change, implying the world doesn’t always accept interracial relations willingly. Additionally, when including a lens from Berger’s essay, the viewer can expand upon the idea of relations with the “Other” and how these bring change by studying the unequal relationship between men and women, as discussed in Berger’s essay.
