A teenage boy is hired along with the music group of his father by a Zamidar (landlord) for entertaining him until the annual flood is over in the Haor region of East Bengal. But the boy finds out that he has to do something more than the rest of the members of the group are required- he has to satisfy the landlord sensually as well. The wife of the landlord cannot stand this new 'rival' of hers and conspires to kill the boy. Written by
Rituparno Ghosh seems to have had a counterpart in Dhaka, Humayun Ahmed. They looked alike, according to the one photo I have of Ahmed, and after an extremely distinguished literary career, extensive television work and ten films, Ahmed directed GHETUPUTRA KAMOLA (PLEASURE BOY KOMOLA), on a dancing boy in drag in rivalry with a (real) queen.
Komola belongs to a poor music group hired by a king to help pass the rainy months, when the king's mahal will be inaccessible. But he's more interested in the dancing boy, an interest that is quite obvious -- the king instructs the boy to dance more with his hips, and their first intimate encounter is made explicit by, in another room, other people overhearing the boy's scream. The poverty of the music group is suggested by the line, as they enter the mahal for the first time and they look toward the ceiling, "That is a chandelier." KOMOLA was entered for the Oscars last year (it didn't make the final cut) and was at both the Chennai and Bangalore festivals this year. Ahmed died of colorectal cancer in New York in 2012.
