  1. Can’t wait for this to appear here in the UK – at least on DVD.

  2. The poster is so hot. Did you know one of the actors has been disowned by his family?

    I tell you what though, this is going to be the biggest under the counter/illicit download film in India that’s for sure.

  3. “They told our distributors that ours is a gay film and their theatres are meant for family audiences.”

    Oh, well of course, that’s makes perfect sense:- I don’t have a family, a mother, a father, a brother, a sister, a partner….. since when did the word “family” become mutually exclusive to being gay? Would it not make more honest sense to say “I’m a bigot and I wont show the film”?

    A ban is the best recommendation.

  5. Oh, look, its Commanderthor back again…. Skinner by any other name, would it still sound as foolish?

  6. Will, I think you may have jumped the gun there. In the world of theatre and cinema, and even in literature, a ban is often a fine recommendation . . . to the cognoscenti, at least. Some of the world’s finest pieces of theatre, and cinema, were banned when they first appeared. That’s not to say that this is the best thing that could have happened for this film. This film needs to be seen widely in India. But hopefully this is the beginning. The Indian mainstream will get slowly used to the idea and one day they’ll be happily accepting gay films in their “family” theatres, I am sure.

  7. I’ve seen parts of it…

    as good as apple pie…

    a blockbuster for sure!
