• SYNOPSIS FIRE • IMDB (USA) :
• In New Delhi Sita, a beautiful and intelligent young woman embarks on an arranged, loveless marriage to a faithless husband, Jatin.
• The extended family, owners of a video store, live together according to custom. Family tensions escalate.
• Radha, Sita's sister-in-law, is unable to conceive; her disappointed husband Ashok (Sita's husband's brother) has taken a vow of celibacy, acquired a swami and is often gone.
• Eventually Jita and Radha develop a physical relationship which is far more emotionally sustaining than they have found with their husbands.
FIRE : This is not a story about lesbianism
- User Comments Mausam Seattle (IMDB USA) :
• It is more a subtle story of the fact that in Indian household how most decisions are taken by the man, how no attention is paid to the desires of the lady, for example how even when the husband and wife sleep together it would be a test for the husband whether he can control his desires, not to give the woman pleasure.
• And in such a type of scenario, women invariably have two choices, either to accept all this and take it into their own life, which is usually the case or not accept this and try to mould things to satisfy themselves, which makes a movie!
Fire is a brilliantly directed story of the second option, which women choose for themselves, no sacrifice, not to serve anybody else, rather a decision for their own good. Somehow the whole idea of justifying lesbianism didn't find an acceptance in the Indian audience but if one looks the whole movie from an angle of self-expression, then the whole debate doesn't even arise.


FIRE - An Interview with Director DEEPA MEHTA • by Jayne Margetts - Celluloid (USA)
Deepa Mehta :: FIRE
• Critical acclaim aside, Mehta has proven herself to be one of India's most controversial and taboo-breaking film makers of the last two decades; women salute her and men often revile her. " 'I am going to shoot you, madam' is a line one doesn't hear every day, especially when it's delivered by an incensed gentleman on the verge of going ballistic. This threat, along with a few others, was received after the first screening of Fire at the International Film Festival of India in Trivandrum this past January," she remembers.
• "I had never seen so many explosive males and so many jubilant women in one place, all ready to have a fist fight in order to support their particular view of Fire. Finally, the police appeared, tempers cooled, and I was escorted to the safety of my hotel. It was amazing that a film which explores choices, desires and the psyche of people who are victims of people who are victims of tradition, would cause such an uproar. But perhaps I was naive."
• The exploration of lesbianism is virtually unheard of within Indian cinema, and because of this, Fire continues to draw venom and praise.


FIRE • CELLULOID REVIEW by Jayne Margetts (USA)
Deepa Mehta :: FIRE
Fire : incandescent, gripping and organic. One of the best Indian movies of all time!
STORY : Sita (Nandita Das) is a rebellious, unique and sensuous young woman who, having recently been sold into an arranged marriage, faces life with her preoccupied Indian husband.
• For Director Deepa Mehta, Fire sees a departure from the usual idiosyncratic Asian wife who exists only a level of servitude.
• Beautiful, adventurous and exotic beyond her years it is obvious - in the early scenes of Fire - that Sita will not tolerate the lot of screen heroines before her.
• Her husband Jatin (Jaaved Jaaferi) is an egotistical man who is more concerned with kowtowing to his Chinese mistress and escaping into the realms of Western pop music than paying close attention to his new spouse.
• This is not the case however for Radha (Shabana Azmi), the long-suffering wife of Jatin's brother Ashok. Radha, the wife (or domestic slave whichever way you want to look at it) has been at the beck and call of her husband Ashok, who in his advancing years, has found great comfort in the company of a spiritual leader who peddles the manifesto that any thoughts of desire are sinful and impure.
• Thus she remains barren and devoid of any affection.
• The cramped household also comprises Jatin's invalided grandmother and the crafty Mundu (Ranjit Chowdhry), a voyeur and man who thinks nothing of popping on an X-rated video in front of the grandmother and masturbating.
• Mundu is the eyes and ears of the New Delhi household that makes its living hiring videos. The advent of time sees subtle changes taking place in the house and in the emotions of the two women. A clash of modern and traditional ideals leads the women away from the heartache and inadequacies of their husbands and into each others arms. From snatched erotic moments blossoms the dawn of love and rebellion which change the family forever.
• Atmospheric, tumultuous and sumptuous in its visual delivery, Fire, the first of a trilogy (Earth is currently being written, with Water to follow) whips you up into its volatile arms and takes you to the chasm where taboo and desire entwine.
• Slowly it builds to pressure-cooker proportions and ignites fury from certain quarters of the lair. Shabana Azmi - who portrays the tormented and hypnotic Radha - fills the screen with her dusky beauty and her longings.
• She steals not only your heart but each scene she commands. Nandita Das as Sita is refreshing and revels in the revolutionary stance of a woman perched upon the wings of change. Also worthy of comment is the sly Mundi performed by Ranjit Chowdhry who juggles humour, sleaze and voyeurism admirably.
• One of the greatest pleasures of immersing yourself in the caverns of Deepa Mehta's work is that it is a shared experience. Viewing Fire at the recent Melbourne International Film Festival, in a cinema that seemed to be splitting at the seams with expectant viewers, was a liberating experience. It was impossible to escape the sighs, expectations and gasps emanating from fellow movie goers. When the final credits slid down the screen the entire theatre erupted into deafening applause and whistles. This is the kind of effect Mehta has, and to be a witness is to realise that she is one of the most important film makers of Indian and contemporary history.

FIRE • Queer View (Version in Deutsch) FIRE • Queer View (Version in English):
• STORY FIRE :
• A young woman, in an arranged marriage, throws the traditions of an extended Indian family into confusion and develops a passion for her sister-in-law.
• REVIEW FIRE :
• A country's first feature film about a homosexual couple, and it is about women, not men (after a 35-minute documentary Khush about Indian lesbians and some gay men, and the 11-minute video production BOMgAY).
• This is because Fire deals more with women's roles in mainly Indian society, rather than with any lesbian subculture.
• The same old story of a lesbian film, which is disputed as being such by the film makers? Certainly director Deepa Mehta and star of the film Shabana Azmi are opposed to this categorisation.
• Fire advocates tolerance etc., the usual stuff, and so is to be understood in a "humanistic" sense. When considering the potential audience, film makers are often more conservative than their product, as Philadelphia, which tried to distance itself from the North American gay scene, demonstrated.
• In this light it is understandable and forgivable for Nandita Das as Sita, in comparison to Shabana Azmi as Radha, not to come across totally convincingly as a lesbian, if she is not supposed to be one.
• In its social critique, Fire is laden with symbols, although this is a society steeped in symbols. Also the dreamy satire on the gender roles in an old fairy-tale is good for a few laughs. Apart from that, the socio-critical film fulfils all the expectations of its (western) audiences, except that it was filmed in English, or rather "Hinglish". Not, we are assured by the director who emigrated to Canada in 1973, for any commercial reasons, but because her mother tongue, like that of millions of other middle-class children, happens to be English as a result of British colonialism. A butch-femme dance scene with Sita and Radha shines in innovative radiance, as the women not only slip into the relevant roles, but into the relevant Chinese roles.
An encouraging women's film from a society which suppresses more than the West knows from experience.

The Rebecca Review FIRE • Indian Bollywood Movies Review (USA)
Forbidden Fire By TheRebeccaReview.com • Amazon Review TOP 10 (USA) :
• "It was amazing that a film which explores choices, desires and the people who are victims of people who are victims of tradition, would cause such an uproar." - Deepa Mehta, the director of FIRE
• The beauty of this movie is more in the questions it asks than the erotic relationship between two women who resort to a lesbian relationship due to their husbands finding satisfaction everywhere else besides their marriage bed.
• Are all sins equal? Is adultery not seen in the same light by religious people as desiring a person of the same sex? Why are people who desire love in the way these two women do seen as more sinful than those in society who commit adultery? Does God turn his eyes and not see one and see the other?
• This movie asks questions that are difficult to answer because all of us possess desire. We all want to be loved, understood and feel the compassion of others.
• We don't want to live our lives feeling lonely, unloved, rejected sexually. Radha (Shabana Azmi) and Sita (Nandita Das) are forced to choose between a loveless life with their husbands or a caring and compassionate life with one another.

Bollywood: Karan Razdan’s new movie GIRLFRIEND • Yahoo Movies (USA) :
• His next film, Girlfriend, is being shot in Mauritius and is already creating ripples in the market for its tantalising theme.
• The film deals with the taboo topic of lesbianism. It is about how a couple's love life is affected by the girl's over-possessive best friend.
• Ashish Chowdhary, Razdan's leading man in Girlfriend, jumps to his director's defence.
• "I don't think Karan is capable of anything sleazy. I'm proud to be doing Girlfriend. It's turning out to be a truly sensitive study of human relationships.
• "I love my confrontation scenes with the over-possessive girlfriend, Amrita Arora. She even tries her kickboxing on me to intimidate me," chuckles Chowdhary.

Karan Razdan GIRLFRIEND • Mid-Day News (USA)
Girlfriend: shockingly true? By Chaitanya Padukone • Mid-Day News (USA) :
• Believe it or not, the lesbian-theme movie Girlfriend is based on actor-turned-writer-turned-director Karan Razdan’s real life experience. “There was this scheming babe who became over-friendly with my girlfriend and tried to drive us apart, until I aborted her devious plans.
• This sparked off the inspiration to make Girlfriend which is the most unusual love triangle, or ‘wreck-tangle’, ever attempted in Bollywood cinema,” claims Razdan whose previous erotic thriller Hawas faded into oblivion from the third week.
• Was it true that the Censors objected to some of the steamy sequences between the two female lovers in Girlfriend ? “That’s right, we were asked to tone down certain passionate scenes. Ultimately the movie was okayed because there is a thought-provoking psychoanalytical theme justifying Ishaa Koppikar’s character’s kinky behavior,” says the director.
• Although, Ishaa’s character is supposed to be a lesbian, how come she has sensuous lovemaking scenes, with the hero played by Aashish Chowdhry, being highlighted in the promos? Wasn’t that confusing for audiences? “No, Ishaa’s character is a victim of child-abuse and turns into a staunch man-hater.
• Since she is possessive about her bosom-pal (Amrita Arora), she merely seduces Aashish trying to prove to Amrita that he is an unfaithful lover. But she is not deriving physical pleasure from it,” explains Razdan who is ‘re-launching’ late actor Raj Kumar’s daughter Vastavikta Pandit in his next movie Eight which also heralds the comeback of Padmini Kolhapure.

Girlfriend Hindi Film Songs • ApunKaChoice CD Album Songs Review :
• Considering that director Karan Razdan’s ‘Girlfriend’ is based on the theme of a girl’s obsession for another girl, the movie’s music, full of love duets and seductive numbers, comes as a bit of a surprise.
• The selling point of the film’s songs, composed by Daboo Malik, is its soft and lilting music and its ear catching melodies. The lyrics by Praveen Bhardwaj are a mix of poetic innovations and trite verses.
• The album begins with a seductive number Thodi Tumse Shararat, sung together by sweet voiced Sonu Nigam and Shreya Ghosal. The light mood of the song and its mellifluous music makes for a good listening. A sad version of the same song appears later in the album.
• The album then nudges into a romantic mood with Kumar Sanu showing his vocal skills for the solo number Tere Chehre Se Nazar. Although the lyrics and music of this song is quite average, it still carries an overall appeal. Later, Shreya Ghosal sings another version of this song.
• Then comes another love song Hamara Dil that has lyrics by Anwar Sagar. This song is probably the best of the lot with simple music and good singing by Sunidhi Chauhan and Abhijit. Perhaps that is why it is repeated again in the album. However, one oddity that sticks out in this track is Abhijit’s portion when he breaks the flow and the tempo of the song.
• Then comes a peppy number Suno To Jaana Jaana which is a typical hip-hop number with a heavy use of beats. The song, sung together by Sunidhi Chauhan and Vaishali Samant, has a good doze of techno sounds and foot tapping beats. This song makes for a good dancing number.
Bheegi Bheegi is another erotic number filled with various moods. The song starts slowly and then the two singers – Shaan and Sowmya Raoh – lift up the tempo after few lines. Music director Daboo Malik also chips in this song by narrating a line or two in the middle.
• On the whole, Girlfriend’s music will appeal to the listeners chiefly due to its lilting sounds and melodious musical arrangements.


Girlfriend • ApunKaChoice Movie Review :
• SYNOPSIS Girlfriend :
• Written and directed by Karan Razdan, ‘Girlfriend’ is a movie that defies the Bollywood stereotype of a boy-meets-girl kind of stories. It is a story about the possessiveness of one woman towards another.
Tanya (Isha Koppikar) and Sapna (Amrita Arora) are best of friends. They have been that way since college and they live together, enjoying life and making fun of guys who keep drooling over them.
• So life goes on with fun and frolic for the two girls until Tanya has to go out of town on some official work. During these days Sapna meets Rahul (Ashish Choudhary) who pursues her and succeeds in winning her love. By the time Tanya returns, Sapna is head over heels in love with Rahul.
• Her friend’s sudden falling in love with a stranger makes Tanya feel very insecure. She reacts very strongly to the coming of Rahul in Sapna’s life.
• Suddenly Tanya finds herself feeling jealous and possessive for Sapna. She can’t stand the idea of losing her friend to some one else. Her emotions find a release in the very first meeting with Sapna’s lover. She even goes to the extent of breaking their relationship.
• But what name should be given to Tanya’s feelings for Sapna. Is it the mere friendliness towards a companion or is there something deeper?
• REVIEW Girlfriend :
• In the garb of novelty, Karan Razdan has tried to woo the audience by picking up an ‘attention-grabbing’ subject of lesbianism and sprinkling it with ‘eye-popping’ skin show by the two saucy belles Isha Koppikar and Amrita Arora.
• Indian masses, starved of sex-related subjects on silver screen, will obviously care not a fig to spend a few dimes worth a ticket to quench their curiosity of seeing the two girls ‘making it out’ before the camera. And they will not be disappointed. The disappointment is in store for those who care for depth in the subject and not merely the skin exposure.
• Hardly any attempt has been made to explore the subtleties of a homosexual relation. One girl is shown as too insecure to get into any male relationship, because of an incident of childhood abuse in her life, while the other girl appears to lose her orientation of whom she is getting physical with after swigging down just a few drinks. Therefore, a lesbian relationship.
• In itself, any subject can be worth making into a film if the maker knows what he wants to tell and tells it efficaciously. And Karan fails on both the grounds. Girlfriend has neither the spine of a convincing story nor the muscle of believable performances by the star cast.
• Of the three main performers in the movie, the one who stands out is Isha Koppikar. At least she is not as superficial in her acting as Amrita and Aashish. There are a few moments in the movie when Isha is able to bring intensity to her character and portray her jealousy and obsession.
• Amrita Arora hardly knows a little more than just to giggle or to give a voluptuous expression while Aashish Choudhary looks confused playing a role he could not identify with.
Girlfriend might have been made into a gripping film. But it goes by with a thud because of the absence of a moving story. Yet it certainly has the money’s worth for those who care for sexually explicit scenes, the steamiest of which comes just before the interval, much to the ‘convenience’ of such viewers.

Karan Razdan GIRLFRIEND • Teenstation Movies - Bollywood Reviews (USA)
Girl Friend By Indu Mirani • Teenstation Review (USA) :
• One doesn’t know whether to celebrate or mourn.
• Celebrate because one more taboo subject, lesbianism, has been brought out of the closet or mourn at the sleazy opportunistic way it has been done.
• Girlfriend is about a couple of girlfriends who have lived together ever since college. They share the same bed but though one of them, Isha Koppikar, lusts for the other, Amrita Arora, Amrita is unaware of it. Isha is the manly one about the house, providing the rent and taking care of the odd jobs. She also beats up all guys who dare ogle at Amrita while she herself drools outside the door every time Amrita takes a bath.
• Amrita is an airhead who knows nothing about anything and even though the two girls shared a sexual encounter once, she puts it down to their being drunk and not knowing what she was doing. Very convenient.
• When Amrita falls in love with Aashish Choudhary, Isha is up in arms and tries her best to break things up between them. Aashish has begun to suspect the friendship but though he confronts Amrita the girl refuses to believe anything is amiss. She is one dumb blonde.
• Isha gets all butch by cutting her hair and saying she hates men because she was a victim of child abuse. She gets onto her motorcycle and attacks Aashish. And so on and so forth till one of them must vacate the scene.
• A film about lesbianism and what drives alternate sexuality required a mature handling of characters, which writer director Karan Razdan has not been able to do. Instead he serves up a variant of the obsession theme with every opportunity taken to add steamy scenes. So all three characters, at one time or another are involved in a seduction scene.
• No acting is called for and none is given. T and A is on glorious display. But even in a film in which the acting levels are so low, Amrita Arora plumbs new depths. She is painful to watch as is the whole film.
• Chalk this up as one for titillation only.
