Why Do TV Shows And Movies Always Go To The Sexy Part When My Mom Walks In?
So as Indians, a lot of us live with our parents right? Which means kabhi na kabhi, kahin na kahin, our parents will catch us watching something “sexy”.
Very often, these sexy things are inappropriate. We tend to watch pornography after a certain age. But most of us have the good sense to lock the door when we indulge in these ashuddh activities. If you don’t…HI! We’re glad you now know how locks work.
But many times, we aren’t watching anything particularly shady.
We’re just watching a 2-hour movie or a 1 hour TV show with two minutes of sexiness in it.
But these are the 2 minutes in which your mother will insist on walking into your room.
Take Game Of Thrones for example – a show that has a lot of political intrigue, deep conversations about the meaning of power and leader, epic sets, costumes and production design and infinitely quotable dialogues. But does your mom walk in when any of this is happening? No.
She’ll walk in exactly when boobs are on the screen and characters are doing the shadiest things possible. Did she wait for Danaerys Targaryen to make her big speech about how she intends to conquer Westeros? No. Did she walk in as soon her clothes came off?
Or a Madhur Bhandarkar movie like Fashion, that explores what it means to be a woman in a ruthless industry. Calling out both models and the people around them for being absolute dicks. Insisting that we look beyond beauty to what is underneath.
Did she walk in when Priyanka Chopra was confronting Kangana Ranaut in an ominous exchange in the bathroom? No.
Did she walk in as soon as Priyanka Chopra is naked? Hell yes.
The worst culprit being Rangeela. A family friendly romp about ditching an established, rich and kind actor who loves you for your childhood friend who loves dressing in yellow. But does that stop the movie from having an unnecessarily long and sensual song?
Does it stop my mother from showing up once again?
Movies aren’t even the worst at this…for anybody who has played video games in their living room, there is so much fresh hell they have to push through. Because even though the game you’re playing might be about people kicking the shit out of each other, the women have decided to dress like very awkwardly –
Or anime…Jesus Christ…Let’s just agree, watching anime in India is way more trouble than it’s worth. Seriously, WTF is wrong with you Japan?
Honestly, anime might just not be worth it in Indian homes…
