Storyline

Based on the gay poetry of R. Raj Rao, "BOMGaY" is a collection of six vignettes that depict the underground and twisted nature of the gay identity in urban India. Part Genet, part Bollywood this film combines acidic verse and insightful imagery to reveal the emerging gay community in post-liberalized India of the 1990's. Written by Monish Bandodkar <riyad@giasbm01.vsnl.net.in>
