Deo­hans (right) whose de­but film Tea­spoon deals with the com­plex re­la­tion­ship be­tween a daugh­ter-in-law and her fa­ther-in-law, says that she loves mak­ing films with which au­di­ences can feel a con­nect.

“I’m one of those film­mak­ers who love to de­pict the re­al­ism that ex­ists in so­ci­ety. I mean, I want to make films in which the au­di­ence can em­pathise with and re­late to the char­ac­ters,” she says. “As far as this film goes, my friends told me a lot of sto­ries about how new­ly­wed women have it re­ally tough. From those sto­ries rose a com­mon thought about com­plex­i­ties, and that’s how I de­cided to make the film.”

The film star­ring ac­tors Vaquar Sheikh and Sree Swara was also a part of sev­eral film fes­ti­vals around the globe, in­clud­ing the Poppy Jasper Film Fes­ti­val, where it won the Best For­eign Film Award. Aban ad­mits she was sur­prised that peo­ple in the West could re­late to the film. “It’s more of an In­dian thing, you know, the re­la­tion­ship be­tween a fa­ther-in-law and his daugh­ter-in-law. So I was a bit sur­prised, when I saw peo­ple watch­ing and ap­pre­ci­at­ing the film,” she says, adding, “About 60% of mar­ried men stay at home and women whose hus­bands work out­side have ab­so­lutely no idea what goes on in their houses.”

Aban also talks about peo­ple hav­ing liked the con­cept of her film. She says, “I think peo­ple re­lated to it be­cause at the end of the day, it’s about re­la­tion­ships. That is the USP of the film. It talks about re­la­tion­ships.”
