Growing up in the Indian house isn’t a breeze. It is probably more like a hurricane, which we can never really learn to tackle. No matter how cool your parents are, they never really lose that over-protective vibe.
If you want to see the epitome of Indian parenthood, then just add the Marathi movie Ti Saddhya Kay Karte starring Abhidnay Berde and Aarya Ambekar to your watchlist. Like us, the main characters of the film, Tanvi and Anurag, are living with this every day. But, what truly makes the movie fun is the traits of parents are common for all of us. It makes the watchers crack up; I mean, I caught myself giving an imaginary high-five to both, Anurag and Tanvi.
Watch Anurag’s parents scold him for his tantrums on Ti Saddhya Kay Karte on ZEE5
1. Compare scores
No one can forget the numerous walks of shame we have done from school to back home after the report card day. I, for one, have lost the count. Speaking about my scores wasn’t my proudest moment, just like in Anurag’s case. Remember when he is inquired by Tanvi’s father about his marks?
2. New things are a blessing
Introducing to them the concept of getting new clothes is equivalent to asking for an exorbitant car. They will ask numerous questions. Only if you pass through this test, you will get the thing of your liking. Poor Anurag isn’t able to persuade his parents for getting him new denim and has to settle for his brother’s hand me downs. Whoops!
3. Lack of privacy
Our parents conveniently choose to ignore ‘privacy’ from their dictionary and our life. In Ti Saddhya Kay Karte, they don’t want to leave Anurag behind when he declares to opt out of their family vacation. Like ours, even Anurag and Tanvi’s household is flooding with over protectiveness and lacks solitude!
4. The older brother is a God-like figure
Your God isn’t the one in the temple but in your house in old sibling’s form. Your folks will grill and push you to follow his example. I feel sorry for Anurag as his requests are denied and his older brother has that evil laughter.
You may be the coolest kid on the block, but for your parents, you will still be their baby. So, tell us in the comments if any of these qualities remind you of your parents?
