Something new and revelutionary blockbusting gay movie youll not find that here. its the generic take on gay men that cant step out from the darkness and tell mum and dad, or omma and appa because they are afraid of thems reaction stuff, and a whole lot of walking around the golden nugget not daring to touch it and a lot of rather incosequent dialouges and stuff that weve seen before.

the one exeption is that the main caracters a muslims , a religion not so friendly on sexual ''outsiders''. talking of actors, there are some nice facial acting here and there, and some of the archetypival gay behaviour are done with brilliant moves, but its drowning itself in a bad script and generally bad direction. also the casting crew hasnt chosen the sweetest sugar canes for the small roles, some very uncomfy and amateuristic, and doesnt fill in the environment at all.

so its a film that rolled straight through my eyes and ears, and will be forgotten really soon. the grumpy old man acknowledge the try, but not the execution.
