    Abstract

    With the immediate danger of a possible ban now behind us, it may be useful to look at 'Fire' more carefully and raise certain questions in the context of the recent controversy and acclaim. Shouldn't we go beyond identifying good and bad images of women to investigate the critique of patriarchy that a film like 'Fire' provides, and the characterisation of the feminist self that it makes available?
