导演阐述 Director’s Statement

作为一名早已进入而立之年的男同性恋者,我想讲述一个与出柜、双面生活或一厢情愿的爱情都无关的酷儿故事。我致力于摆脱常见的酷儿刻板印象,所以他们的性取向反倒是次要情节。我一直希望在印度电影中看到积极正面的酷儿关系,既具体又能引起观众的广泛共鸣。《敲敲的爱》正是如此。这是一出生动的浪漫剧,受个人经历影响,呈现出情感复杂,真实可爱,贴近生活,又带有少许离奇色彩的鲜明特征。

As a gay man in my mid-30s, I wanted to tell a queer story that was not about coming out. Or living a double life or unrequited love.

My goal was to move away from the common portrayal of queer characters where their sexuality is secondary to the plot. I have always wanted to see positive representation of queer relationships in Indian cinema that are both specific and relatable to a broad audience. TAPS is that. Inspired by personal experiences, it’s a living, breathing romantic drama that is messy, real, cute, relatable, and bizarre.
