If our mothers would have raised all their children as equals, today Afghan women could have had the freedom to go outside without an escort. The violent nature of the Taliban is heavily present in the film Osama. The girl reluctantly agrees, despite being afraid that the Taliban will kill her if they discover her masquerade.
She is forced to live with his former wives. But as much as the name is internationally known, the emotions that the film explores are thoroughly for the sake of an internal dialogue.
Throughout the movie I found myself very shocked but also not surprised at the same time.
The women under Taliban control cannot work, wear what they please, or come and go as they please. In many different ways, we both were helpless, where she chose her culture, and I choose my freedom.

He already has three wives, all of whom hate him and say he has destroyed their lives. One of the biggest weaknesses of this movie were the subtitles.
