Movie Reviews

This souffle collapsed!
Jeffery Mingo | Homewood, IL USA | 12/26/2004
(2 out of 5 stars)

"Take a lot of bad, second-rate, low-budget gay American movies, make them Indian, and you have this untasty dish. The film moves sssllooowww. The timing is off. The actors are all stock characters: the flamboyant one, the actor trying to hide, the guy on the down low, the straight female best friend, and the "gay everyman" main character. Surprisingly, the supporting actors are cuter than the main actor, unlike in most Western, gay films. I loved that this film shows that there are gay-identified men in India. However, homophobia on the subcontinent is never brought up. No character critiques this legalized bigotry brought over by the English imperialists. This was disappointingly apolitical, especially coming from characters that are supposed to be sharp, hip, and class-privileged. The one thing I loved about this movie is that many men with sexy, hairy chests are featured."
