By Jennie GandhiIt is a first of sorts for Bollywood: a film about wife swapping that involves no large-scale shimmering song and dance sequences. Mixed Doubles is, in short, a serious movie about a taboo subject from India’s film capital that has for decades relied on making people laugh or cry rather than think.

Made on a budget of just £85,000 and shot over 25 days, the film is a tongue-in-cheek take on sex and marriage. “It is about what happens when the spark goes in marriage. About what happens when the bedroom is not what it used to be,” said Rajat Kapoor, the film’s director.

In tackling such a subject the film, which opened yesterday, is seen as spearheading a new genre of Indian movies that attempt to tackle issues more subtly than the current crop of blockbusters. “It is not your typical Bollywood movie where everything is completely romanticized and hypocritically suggests that we are not sexual beings. Either that or they try to titillate audiences.”

Set in middle-class Bombay, the film has a bored husband trying out wife swapping to revive his marriage. His frank, comic attempts at finding the right set of partners and eventually recasting his marriage would seem mild fare for western audiences but are refreshing for those in India.

What has struck people who have seen the film is that it shows women with a libido. Konkona Sen Sharma, who plays the frustrated wife in the film, told interviewers she had taken the role in part because it showed “that women also want to have sex. Very few films address themselves to a woman’s sexual appetite.”

Academics say movies like Mixed Doubles, which make little concession to English and deal with urban mores, are an indication of how Indian society is dividing. “What you can see is two kinds of movies. One for the dusty folk who live in the villages and plains of the country, and the other for wealthy urbanites with more cosmopolitan interests,” said Dipanker Gupta, professor of sociology at Jawaharlal Nehru University in Delhi.

Unusually for Bollywood, actors were auditioned, a departure in an environment where studios dictate casts to directors and new starlets are more likely to be beauty contest winners than drama school graduates. “There are plenty of great actors – it is the films they lack,” Kapoor said.

He said his inspiration came from 60s Hollywood film-makers such as Billy Wilder, and he hoped to replicate the artistic respectability achieved by films like Some Like it Hot. “I wanted something a little more erotic and sensuous than your typical Bollywood movie.”A controversial Oscar-nominated Indian movie has finally been released in the country in which the script is set – seven years after a horde of Hindu fundamentalists forced the director to shoot the film in Sri Lanka.

Deepa Mehta’s Water is set in the ferment of pre-independence India and examines the social exclusion of Hindu widows, who are shunned by society after the loss of their husbands.

Hindu fundamentalists in 2000 decided that the movie’s plot and its depiction of the appalling conditions experienced by a child-widow on the burning ghats (pyres)of the river Ganges were an insult to the country’s dominant religion.

A mob destroyed the film set and burned Ms Mehta’s effigy, and the director only managed to get five minutes of reel in the can.

Ms Mehta, speaking to the Guardian at a low-key film preview today, said that the movie was not a “challenge to anyone or any society but a story”.

“I had submitted my script to the ministry [of information and broadcasting] in India for approval. It came back fine and the minister from a Hindu nationalist government said it was fine. Then I went to pre-production work and found a howling mob of 15,000 at the set, saying the script was anti-Hindu. We had to give up the movie in India after that.”

Eventually, the film was shot in neighbouring Sri Lanka with an Indian cast speaking predominately in Hindi, the language of India’s northern cowbelt. Ms Mehta is a Canadian citizen and Water ended up as that country’s official entry to the Oscars.

Shown in more than 50 countries, Water has gone on to become one of the most successful Indian language films of last year, grossing $6m in the US alone.Subash K Jha, one of India’s top film critics, said today “What do you say about a film that hits you hard where it hurts the most; so hard that it takes your breath away? (Water can) re-structure the way we, the audience, look at the motion-picture experience.”The filmmaker is no stranger to controversy. Water completes a trilogy of movies by Ms Mehta. The first episode, Fire, which featured a lesbian love affair, was banned in India.The next instalment, Earth, which centred on the bloody madness that seized Hindus and Muslims when the British retreated from the subcontinent, had sex scenes cut by Indian censors and was banned in Pakistan.”I am a storyteller. I don’t set out to provoke reactions,” Ms Mehta said. <!– From –> <!– google_ad_section_end –>
