The Quick Explanation
Qala is a story about mental wellness in our current society. Qala is stuck in a culture where sexism runs rampant. She is in a position to fight that culture as a famous person, but she can’t seem to get past earning her mother’s approval—which feeds right back into that sexist culture. Her mother, Urmila, constantly holds Qala to that culture’s stodgy views, never allowing Qala’s to chase her dreams. Because of this, Qala feels cornered and commits a heinous act. This leads to Qala becoming mentally unwell and eventually taking her own life.
Thus, the entire movie superposes that societal struggle over the Manjushree family. Qala becomes symbolic of what can happen to young people when society won’t move forward or cooperate with succeeding generations. This everlasting tug-and-pull battle leads to mental casualties, as young people are unable to cope with a society that is actively working against them.
