Storyline

Krishna alias Kris Sahani lives in New York, U.S., but decides to travel to his homeland in order to act in a movie. While Ricardo Fernandes leaves Sydney, Australia to travel to Bombay in search of his missing brother, Roger. And finally, Zeres Mistry, from London, England, also travels to Bombay to find his true love. The paths of all three Non-resident Indians cross in the taxi ride to Colaba, and they decide to stick together in their search for an apartment. They do succeed in finding one, owned by a seemingly gay landlord, Pesi Shroff, who openly and lovingly eyes a visibly uncomfortable Zeres. Things do not go well for Kris as well as he is asked by Filmmaker, Don Mastana, to act in a movie that is slated to be the worst movie in Bollywood history. Ricardo finds himself at the mercy of the local police, who make it clear to him that they have better things to do than look for his missing brother. It is only a matter of time before the hapless trio to realize that their ... Written by rAjOo (gunwanti@hotmail.com)

Finally, a light, positive, realistic view of Bombay life
10 December 1999 | by (Coral Gables, Fl) – See all my reviews

Finally, Bombay (now Mumbai) appears to us as the westernized megalopolis that it is. The film does not dwell on the misery of the slum dwellers, or on mysticism, but rather on the young, artsy, middle-class scene in this great Indian city. The three hip, returning "hyphenated" young Indians explore very real aspects of life in modern India. The film is very bold in its statements about India's huge film industry ("Bollywood"), Western morals and values prevalent among young people, and male homosexuality (still illegal in India). ..............................................................Indian film censorship is so severe, even though the script is pre-approved (as it first must be submitted to a board), a government censor is still present at all shootings. Despite that level of censorship before and during the filming, the movie was cut and the original negative was not even returned to the screenwriter/filmmaker. According to the director at a recent screening, the film suffered over 20 cuts and lost a few minutes of its running time, and not just for illegal sexual acts. Adding to the film's controversy, a couple of cinemas were burned down in protest of the "depravation" shown in the film (allegedly, this is common in India; the situation was worse when FIRE premiered). Undeniably, BOMBAY BOYS makes its statements in stylish, and innovative ways not common in Indian films. A real gem.
