Because homosexuality is still a crime in many parts of the world, people are afraid of taking a stand for their individuality. There has been a number of movements and protests for the freedom of homosexuality, but no thought has been given to those girls who have married to homosexuals because they are afraid of exposing the truth in our bitter society.
Nandini is one such girl who got married to Rohit, who is a homosexual. Zoel, Rohit’s partner, is an artist and aware of Nandini’s suffocation. The story takes a turn when Rohit tells Zoel that he is planning to have a kid through IVF, so that Nandini will get busy in her life and it may release him of his guilt too. Opposite to Rohit’s expectations, Zoel felt disgusted with this thought and discards Rohit’s intention of managing his life between him and Nandini.
If it was a sacrifice for Rohit to get married against his gender’s choice for the sake of social integrity, it was a crime to Nandini also whose dreams of a married life devastated.
The protagonist’s insight towards his wife’s sacrifice becomes a prime point to reconsider his ideas of love and marriage. “Gray” not just touches upon the homosexual aspects of human beings but also take us beyond our gender choices to understand and connect to a human being.
