Bollywood films enter a brave, gay world


With giddily risky films like Dostana, South Asian film enters a brave, gay world.

Yes, there’s a full man-on-man kiss in the Bollywood buddy comedy Dostana by metrosexual director Tarun Mansukhani. And amidst the cheese (flaming queens, effeminate affectations), there’s a huge side of beef (John Abraham of Water) who flaunts his physique at the drop of a hat. Or his shirt. Heterosexual male gaze be damned—oye hoye hoye!

Homosexuality is still illegal in India so it will be very interesting to see how this movie does.
