Marriage is the flavour
Enkayaar, Bollywood Trade News Netowrk
Coinciding with the marriage season of the country, quite a lot of films have been released during the last one-month or so which have tried to have a relook into the institution of marriage in the country, more so from the perspective from a newly married couple and they all have followed one after the other. It all started with HONEYMOON TRAVELS, and then came JUST MARRIED, before that there was PYAR KE SIDE EFFECTS.
Earlier the Indian films would in general end with the coming together of the hero heroine and a customary family gathering, but not so now. There seems to be a new trend of experimentation that is being under taken by the film makers who are trying to deconstruct the institution of marriage from the evolutionary perspective. What is being attempted here is to have a dekho at the institution of marriage from the eyes of those who are experiencing it, the birth pangs associated with it, and to try to find solutions to it.
In HONEY MOON TRAVELS, it was the issue of Honeymoon that was focused upon, and it was sort of trying to view the marriage from the perspective of those who have undergone the process, and not from those who have arranged the same. So far, marriage has been filmed umpteen numbers of times but the birth pangs of marriage from the eyes of performers are started getting attention just now. It has also somewhat to do with the fact that the evolution of the society, the couples are now having a nuclear existence and so the pangs have to be understood and ways have to b found.
The institution of marriage has been a subject of interest for quite sometime but this angle of studying it through the eyes of husband and wife is a relatively young evolution. PIYA KA GHAR that came about 20 years ago, staring Jaya Bhaduri and Vijay Arora was a movie that talked about adjustments that a couple have to undergo in a city and it had subsequent follow ups. But the follow ups always had a third player as it was in PATI PATNI AUR WOH and other such films.
May be, we are gradually converging to the fact that marriage is not only celebration and song and dance drama as has been conventionally being portrayed but is an entity that has to be seriously looked into. Interestingly enough, this new genre is being looked into more by women Directors, be it a Meghna Gulzaar, or a Reema Kagti. May be, more such interferences of these kind hit the silver screen on a regular basis.
