Queer love tales are few and much between, and even when they’re made, they’re drowning in stereotypes. However, the third season of Cube Media’s one-minute episodic Instagram sequence Firsts is an exception. It’s a shining instance of showcase a same-sex relationship sans stereotypes.
The lives of Ritu Chatterjee and Lavanya Vijaya, performed by Shreya Gupto and Himika Bose, respectively, just isn’t dominated by their sexuality. Their sexual orientation just isn’t their foremost character trait. As a substitute, they’re like every other couple, having fun with each ‘first’ of their relationship – the primary hug, first kiss, first battle, first date, first ‘I like you’ and many others.
Firsts 3 begins with Ritu swiping proper on Lavanya after altering her sexual orientation as bisexual on a relationship app. The 2 quickly transfer in collectively to discover and perceive love and life collectively. The writers don’t fall into the ‘Log Kya Kahenge’ or ‘how will they get household’s acceptance’ melodrama. They maintain it straightforward going by displaying two impartial ladies coping with life because it comes. At one level, Ritu comes out to her brother who, as a substitute of judging his sister or making her sexuality a household status challenge, asks for a while to course of what he has simply learnt. Thus, making the sequence human.
Coming to performances, each Shreya Gupto and Himika Bose, with their easy performing, make the body look much more stunning every time they share display area.
What is available in the way in which of Firsts 3 being good is its rushed plot. Simply once you begin to join with the characters, you’re taken to the subsequent episode. It could have been great if I had gotten to know the 2 leads higher. What this internet sequence wanted was just a little extra depth and acuity.
