Comment : Depends on sooooo many things!! On the depth of one's friendship. On your spouse mostly. On how well your friend and spouse get along? And mostly how objective you can be when caught between love and friendship?

Do old friendships break up once one friend gets married? Like it happened with Kajol and Karan Johar? He announced at his book launch yesterday that chapter is closed.

Comment : Sawmya- glad you are on the same page. And yes things are sure getting slightly better with films like Bajirao Mastani and Tanu Weds Manu...but it's a long long way to go. I watched Befikre. Both Ranveer and Vani's characters are promiscuous, have multiple partners. But it's only Vani's character that's attacked. Many times. She is slut shamed. And Ranvir's promiscuity is never called out. You know what's saddest about the film? That they don't even show Vani Kapoor cosing it up with multiple men. It's only hinted, it's only spoken about. Not even once we see Vani sleeping around with anyone but Ranvir. Her character is the kinds who would take a lead in a relationship, to get physical. She doesn't even do it with the other person who shows interest in her. And that's how hypocrite we are as Indian film makers. We might show a million carefree kisses and have the woman comment on someone's ass...but we will never show her sleep around in a film, because then she will actually be seen as a 'slut'. Men can do it. Men always do it. Ranvir Singh's character is seen sleeping around, getting physical with a bunch of women and no one ever even for once calls him a slut in the film. It boils my blood. High time we learnt and admitted- Women. Love. Sex. As much as men do.

Comment : Because in the real world the situation is just the opposite. If not all, then definitely in a lot of cases. Now imagine if we painted men as overbearing, dominating creatures, we all would be uncomfortable, as it would be admitting sad truth of inequality in our marriages. It's like calling a skinny person fat will not be hurtful but calling a fat guy fat might be awkward. (Though by no means I am saying being fat is awkward!!) I guess we do this because we men are an insecure lot. We fear we would lose control if we ever treated our women equally. So to make a joke about it, to come across as henpecked fearful partners in marriage is a wicked humorous way to deal with our fears. Anyway we all get away with humor, don't we all?

Why is there a stereotyping of the husband as a henpecked man with a roving eye and living in fear of the spouse and the wife always as a nagging overbearing woman? I have noticed majority of jokes, cartoons etc shared among married friends revolve around this perception. Infact, if you have noticed the comedy element of most Indian movies, regardless of language, it also is based on the same theme.
