1. Interrogation By The Entire Family
Indian marriages are unique where the man and woman continue to live as part of a joint family after they are married. The same parents who stop their kids from engaging or even mentioning sex will suddenly start showing more interest in their sex life after marriage. This situation can lead to some funny instances.
Catch some of this madness in the trailer for Shukranu here.
It all begins when all the men in the family will gather in an intimidating circle to interrogate the boy and decide if he is right for their girl. In Shukranu, Aakriti (Sheetal Thakur) and Inder (Divyenndu) like each other but he has to play chess with her father wrestle with her brothers and answer questions in English to get to even be in the same room as her.
2. Checking The Bedsheets After The First Night
Inder ends up getting married to a different girl, Reema (Shweta Basu Prasad). However, he tries to stay away from her in bed because he has undergone a forced sterlization a few days ago. The next morning his bhabhi checks the bedsheets to see if anything happened last night and then advices Reema how to get things going with Inder.
3. Playing Romantic Music To Set The Mood
Music helps set the mood in the bedroom and Inder’s family knows it. While he is in the bedroom with his wife, his brother and sister-in-law play seductive music loudly outside the room without realising that they are making things awkward inside. They force Inder to go back in the bedroom when he tries to leave.
4. Offering Unconventional Sex Tips
When playing romantic music fails, Inder’s family gives him home remedies to improve his his sex drive. They feed his drumsticks and send him up a tree to get a bee’s sting. They also send him to Khajuraho which is full of erotic sculptures in a hope to make happen between Reema and Inder.
5. Giving Moral Support On Secret Trips To The Sex Clinic
When all else fails, Inder goes to the sex clinic to find out a solution for his problem. This visit to the doctor helps him understand that he can have a healthy sex life even after being sterilized. Inder is tricked into going there by his brother who joins him for support. They both cover their faces to meet the doctor.
