Abstract

Film is an influential medium to catalyze the social change. Like other fine arts film is both a piece of social reality and a vehicle of depicting the True-reality rather than idealizing and stereotyping it. Films have unpretentious effect on society’s perspective. Film has without a doubt contributed a great deal to the strange development in India. Sexual minority comprises of that multitude of individuals who fall under the classifications of Lesbians, Gays, Bisexuals and Transsexuals. Projection of orientation generalizations in films shapes society’s view of orientation jobs. The over-immersion of the sexual orientation generalizations in the movie, KA Bodyscapes directed by Jayan K.Cherian, brings about the deception of orientation which gets implanted in the human psyche and is given from one age to another as an adequate view.
