Indian cinema has witnessed a surge in queer-themed commercial movies since the decriminalization of gay sex in a 2018 Supreme Court decision. The latest addition to this trend is the Malayalam-language drama “Kaathal - The Core.” The film delves into the issue of homophobia in a patriarchal society with sensitivity and intelligence. Set in a South Indian village, the story follows Mathew, who is nominated as a candidate for the City Council election but faces public scrutiny due to his wife’s divorce petition accusing him of having an affair with another man. The film explores complex interconnections of different oppressions and the fight for freedom.
