Sex and the Idiot Box

Ever since their marriage a few episodes ago, Gaurav keeps thwarting wife Vidya's attempts to get intimate, both emotionally as well as physically. While he hasn't confessed it yet, Gaurav is a homosexual. As real as this story may sound, surprisingly, the scene is from Maryada: Lekin Kab Tak on Star Plus. Maryada is the story of four women's attempts to keep their family together. Amidst the regular kitchen politics that is central to most of these shows, its homosexuality track is a bold attempt to break away from convention. The move has found mixed reactions from its audience, though mostly favourable. This has left even the show's producer, Tony Singh of DJ's Creative Unit, surprised. "It is an experiment on TV but the fact is that as awareness spreads regarding taboo issues, people tend to get less judgemental. To include a topic like this, is our way of taking it forward," he says. While it remains to be seen whether Gaurav will ever come out of the closet, there are other shows that are pushing the envelope too. Ekta Kapoor's Pyaar Kii Ye Ek Kahaani (Star One), which is cashing in on the popularity of vampire sagas, also has a parallel gay track. The lead couple on Geet... Hui Sabse Parayi (Star Plus) share quite a few Mills & Boons-ish passionate moments. The daughter-in-law on Sapnon Se Bhare Naina (Star Plus) wears an LBD and drinks socially with her in-laws. Angad Hasija hardly hesitates to take off his shirt and show off his six packs on Phulwa (Colors) And the male protagonist on Rang Badalti Odhni (Star One), played by Karan Tacker, did a towel sequence a la Ranbir Kapoor in Saawariya and later even shared a liplock with his on-screen girlfriend ' though the camera angle left much of it to the viewers' imagination.

Gautam Hegde, the screenwriter of Sapnon Se, agrees that the shows are getting bolder but clarifies that the intention isn't to titillate. "Most of the shows on General Entertainment Channels consider youth as their target audience. Hence, the themes as well as treatment have become very contemporary. This, however, would not have been possible a few years ago," he says. According to Yash Patnaik, the producer of Odhni, two factors have been instrumental in bringing about this change ' bold content for movies since the film industry often leads the way, and the exposure to international shows. "Now, if the girl shares a kiss with her lover on a show, she is no more considered characterless."
