I don’t have much idea what kind of posts readers here appreciate, but I am guessing the bits of valuable information I provide is usually welcomed : like the time I told you about the First Gay Scene of Hindi Cinema. I assume such nuggets are hard to find elsewhere.
Keeping your interests in mind, today I present to you what I think is the first lesbian scene of Hindi cinema, from the period movie Razia Sultan. Hema Malini played Razia Sultan and Zeenat Aman (I always confuse the two) Parveen Babi, her maid. I looked around and didn’t find any literature confirming she was gay, but the director of the movie — Kamal Amrohi — was known to be a meticulous researcher. So I’ll trust him to be right. Plus it’s more fun that way.
The song sequence has obvious lesbian overtones, and intimacy is shown to the extent commercial cinema allowed those days — with a stupid hand-fan coming in the way at the worst possible time. I wonder where our beloved right-wingers were then.
Here you go. The money scene is from 1:25 to 2:12. Also, do not miss the reaction of the maids that immediately follows.
While at uncomfortable topics, I also discovered that Namak Ishq Ka from Omkara might be referring to the act of oral sex. Here, take that video too :
The lyrics were by Gulzar. If true, I won’t be surprised that Vishal Bharadwaj is so sly; but I’ll never get how he got Gulzar to write the lyrics.
