The Casting Couch in India | Short Film


What women go through in the film industry. We hear about it, and some of what you see may strike you as offensive, but the sad truth is that this happens in REAL LIFE. Women are judged based on the colour of their skin. Sexism holds talented females back while men continue to abuse their power in a male-dominated industry. We LOVE films and film making. That is why this short was made. It's about time we have equality in the film industry in all parts of the globe. If you liked this message, leave a comment and thumbs up! We'd love to hear your thoughts about the film.

This is a great way to showcase how single minded the film industry is in Tamil Nadu, all hit movies star the same fair skinned women. It's not just the industry but the audience as well, they're part of the problem. It's time for all women to shine regardless of how they look and what they will or will not do to get a part. Great video as usual guys keep it up!

Hopefully the ending will be a reality one day

The amount shit I get in drama auditions for being dark skinned is unbelievable. It’s a good time this is being shown.

This is a great awareness video. Not only is the Indian film industry notorious for these misconducts of choosing fair skinned women as actresses and sexual harassments against women in the film industry, but also nepotism is a very big problem in the Indian film industry as well. Nepotism in the indian film industry results in the rejection of many potential bright and talented aspiring actors and actresses out there and giving it to their mediocre family members roles in the film industry.

kru's tamil has improved so much, i thought palani wouldve went suicidal and tried to hang himself in the end

I love how this content is relatable even if you're not Tamil. Colorism plagues so many cultures... sexism too.

Dark and beautiful 😬

Great video all! I wish more people will talk about these two issues. Casting super light skinned girls for Tamil movies always frustrated me off. Tamil people are brown, they have never been white. They even go far as to cast a white woman as someone who's Tamil lol. I guess it goes back to Indians and Sri Lankan's trying to look like their white colonizers, believing lighter skin was better than darker skin. It's actually pretty sad. Regarding the sexual harassment. I was actually surprised no major star in India has joined the #Metoo movement (please let me know if i'm mistaken). I'm sure there's hundreds of these incidences, even involving actors and directors, and of course producers. Someone has to stand up and say something, but then again even if those victims come forward, i'm not sure if the Indian people will support them. Probably end up blaming the victim. *sigh*

Now days trend is changing. People accept dark actress like ishwarya rajesh, dhanshika, i hope it will change more...

Love this!! Basement Reels, i've been watching your films for as long as I can remember and you never fail to put a smile on my face or get a meaningful message across. Thank you for your short films - in particular this one. Especially from a male director, Krusan, thank you for portraying the reality. It honestly is really sad. People who are my age, i.e. in their 20s, and who are Sri-Lankan still don't see colour discrimination and sexual abuse as a series issue. So from the depths of my heart, thank you so much for making this video!! Really hope you can see this comment all the way from Australia :)

Tamils aren't dravidans we are tamils they can't control ad arya that's why they create some fake dravidan lies causes they wants hide tamils prides by name of dravidan like dravidan architecture (no it's a tamil architecture )

Suhasini, Amala Paul, iniya, Sai Dhansika, Saranya Ponvannan -all are dusky skinned female actors. Still there is a fixation with fair skin when in comes to actresses

Ryan K Velu Yadav
Amazed by your performance especially the Director role. . Superb !!
P Gajaananan
Educating video - In tamil they say "siru thuli peru vellam", this story should gather momentum and reach everyone and issues must be addressed. They have to be addressed with open and fair way. Hats off - Love your videos for showing social injustices and also for entertainment. Best of luck and keep doing what you are doing. ---- Also the issues are not related to one person, as a society we need to change as well.

When Myuri’s character came in, I could easily see what misfortune was about to happen. Then At 3:26, I could feel the cringe and discomfort starting already. Great work here once again, you folks really captured the scenario well here!

But in reality when a woman exposes someone, it is she who is going through all those discrimination done by the film industry associations. Fact : Chinmayi was banned from the dubbing association without any reason.
