Male Gaze/Female Gaze Pop Quiz Post!!!!

I put up a post a few days ago which did NOT get as many views as it deserved (because it was really good! Read it here!), so now I am going to put up a fun version of it.  Can you pick the correct answer?????

Your challenge!  For each of the following examples, identify if they are:

A. Primarily Male Gaze

B. Primarily Female Gaze

C. Primarily Male wish fulfillment of how they want their bodies to look

D. Primarily No “gaze”, both people are real people


First Example!  “Chalo” from Jism!  Which is it?


Next example!  “Dard-E-Disco” from Om Shamti Om


Something a little trickier for you, “Yeh Mera Dil” from the new Don


How about this? (“Ek Garam Chai” from Har Dil Jo Pyar Karege)


What about this? (“Toh Dishoom” from Dishoom)


This one? (“Sheila Ki Jawani” from Tees Maar Khan)


A tricky one! (“Oo La la” from Dirty Picture)


This one? (“Pump It Up” from Chance Pe Dance)


This one? (“Hadippa The Remix” from Dil Bole Hadippa)


This one? (“Rhythms of Mohabbatein” from Mohabbatein)


And finally, this one (“Choli Ke Peeche” from Khalnayak)




If you want my answers (which you can disagree with, this is somewhat subjective), they are:









A and B

A and B





Oh, and you can also feel free to put your own examples in the comments!  My juices are flowing, I want to identify more clips!

    I confess, I find this “gaze” stuff very confusing — although I understand the premise. Just when I decide it’s a male gaze, she looks back it seems to become a female gaze. I give up.
