House Husband

“House Husband” depicts struggle of a feminist writer to accept feminine quality in his body and mind. The movie starts with the conversations of a middle class couple; husband (Sanjay) promotes his wife (Khushi) for joining office. The time flows and brings adverse effects in their life. He has to take care of small daughter, old ill mother and all other household affairs. When he goes through these activities and recalls his wife taking everything easy then only he internalize the sense of real “Feminist.”

The title “House Husband” is a symbol and metaphor at the same time. It is a dream of giving respect to co-existence and trying all the effort to household and bread winning struggle. It is an imagination of utopian world - happy and prosperous society with equal respect to all.
