Hindi Film 101: Indian Film as Escape and Reality

This came up in a conversation with Niki in the comments a week or so ago, the difficulty of when a fantasy is too real, too close to reality, not the hero part of it that I already discussed, but the situations, the life that the heroine is leading.  And it made me think, is that why Indian films are so consciously unrealistic in certain ways?

Silly Sunday: Shahrukh and Irrfan in a Passionate Late in Life Relationship

Well, MKY pointed out at in the comments on my Friday post that Shahrukh would never play a same-sex romance, or the father of a marriage age daughter, or a polyamorous man in 3 relationships.  To which I said “well, that’s what fanfic is for!”  So if Shahrukh isn’t going to give us these films in real life, I feel I have an obligation to give them to us in fanfic form.

Did you think I didn’t notice Prithviraj’s birthday?  I did!  But I was too tired and overworked to do anything about it.  However, better late than never, and today is a good day for me to start a discussion in the comments since I won’t have time for a big long post until tonight.

Silly Sunday: Fake Marriage Romances, One of the Best Romance Tropes, Featuring Aditya-Anushka, Ranveer-Dips, and SRKajol

Moviemavengal confessed her love for the “fake marriage” romance trope, and it’s one I like quite a bit as well.  And it’s pretty rare in Indian film, replaced by “real arranged marriage becomes love” which isn’t quite the same thing.  So I shall write a few script suggestions just in case anyone needs any! (oh, and if you want to see one that already exists, check out Love By Square Foot on Netflix)
