Times are a changin'!

India is releasing its first gay film, titled Dunno Y, which is touted as "Bollywood's answer to Brokeback Mountain."

It is the first Indian movie to feature a male gay kiss.

While we think it's great that director Sanjay Sharma is willing to make such strides in the country, many religious groups are criticizing the movie, saying that it's "against the order of nature."

It's sad that so many groups are against this film, however, we still believe that it's a huge step toward equality in India.

Thoughts??

    Finally something new for those poor primitive people… Hope they can learn something from it…. Life has so many styles and choices for different things. Otherwise the world will be black and white only…..God doesn't make mistakes eve! Hope is a good movie!

    It's a huge step, considering Bollywood films never even show men and women kissing each other. I'm looking forward to seeing it.

    SHAMEFUL!!! What a disgrace to real men!!!!

    It is a huge step, let's hope we can continue in this direction.

    By the way, it's "The the times they are a-changin'". If you're gonna quote a Dylan lyric, please do it right.



  13. 13

    Wow.. They consider a disgrace when a man kisses a woman in a Bollywood movie or an actress gets a handshake or a hug in a show but is OK for to men to do the nasty? Disgraceful to the max…



  14. 14

    Gross …thats sick!



  15. 15

    It remains to be seen if this will truly be embraced on the subcontinent, or if this was made for western consumption.
    Btw, any info on the actual plot of this movie?



  16. 16

    gross

    Re: PatsFan25 – Hahaha you're so right! And it's poorly done!

    the actors, director, or someone will be found murdered soon. You watch. Islamic nations don't usually stand for this on their soil.

    Re: Scatter – Erm..which would make sense if India was a Islamic country but they're not.



  21. 21

    Re: Scatter – god you are so dumb. India is not an islamic nation get your facts straight!!!



  22. 22

    Re: Scatter – Last time I checked India wasn't an "Islamic" country. There is a minority of Islamic people living there, but the majority are Hindus. Get your shit straight please and thank you.



  23. 23

    ummmm
    @DSummerfan - "poor primitive people"? are you serious? sure there are parts of India that are poor, but primitive? seriously? your ignorance is appalling.
    @Scatter - India isn't an islamic country…

    that being said, you would thing for the first gay movie they've even made that they'd at least make the poster a little less risque :P



  24. 24

    Re: Scatter – Bud get your facts straight! India is hindu country not islamic.

    Dunno Y I like the peen in my pooper.



  26. 26

    Bravo!
    Another international baby step.

    I'm Indian myself (born here, raised here, all that great jazz) and I think it's amazing that finally Bollywood is able to take this step. At first when I saw this post I was like "wait, wow, really?", but I'll admit - I'm proud. India's a conservative country, just this past summer a law was passed for equal treatment and acceptance towards homosexuals, so I'm really excited for this. I don't, however, agree with the whole "it's considered a disgrace for a woman to get a handshake / kiss a man" , considering that there are sex scenes in several Bollywood movies…I'm sure handshakes and kissing is considered a-ok ;)



  28. 28

    yea for my fellow Indians being more progressive



  29. 29

    Re: DSummerfan – poor primitive people? could you be less open-minded? That statement is as bad as saying homosexuals don't deserve equality. Open your eyes beyond your backyard and maybe some education will do you good.



  30. 30

    "Against the order of nature"??? Everything we do nowadays is against the order of nature. Wearing clothes. Driving cars. Flying in planes. Religion!

    Find any of those things in the animal world. Sheesh. Get a clue.

    Re: DSummerfan – Poor, primitive people? India´s culture is VERY, very old, to the extent that the English invented that BS story about the Aryan invasions to say that "whites" brought culture to India. You, on the other hand, are just some dumb cocksucker (BTW, I am gay).



  32. 32

    eww yuck



  33. 33

    So, the Libs are fu^king up that country too?

    Actually, there was a very beautiful lesbian film directed by Deepa Mehta called Fire and starring Shabana Azmi and Nandita Das. According to Wikipedia, "It is the first Indian film to explicitly show homosexual relations. After its 1998 release in India, right-wing Hindu groups staged several protests, setting off a flurry of public dialogue around issues such as homosexuality and freedom of speech." Some theatres showing it were even burned down. It is a truly beautiful film. Let's hope this one depicting gay men does not precipitate the same level of protest and violence as Fire did over a decade ago.

    "DSummerfan – Poor, primitive people? India´s culture is VERY, very old, to the extent that the English invented that BS story about the Aryan invasions to say that "whites" brought culture to India. You, on the other hand, are just some dumb cocksucker (BTW, I am gay)."
    Firstly, DSumerfan, thank u soo much for that comment! I'm an Indian and I HATE the way the world thinks of us as a poor nation with illiterate people. Poverty and illiteracy may be a problem in India. But we're soo much more than that. If only Danny Boyle n the rest of u could open your eyes and see, we have more to us than just poverty. And I'm glad we're having our own very first Gay film. I wish it all the best.

    Why do so many say therre ate no kissing even between men and women in bollywood movies? Have anyone of you actually seen one? I have, and I can it ended in a huge kissing scene just as any comedy/drama flick would do ;D Hard to imagine the indian people going to watch a gay movie though… I thinks it´s bound to be some kind of comedy

    WARNING!This is not a joke! Carry on reading! Or you will die, even if you only looked at the word warning! Once there was a little girl called Clarissa, she was ten-years-old and she lived in a mental hospital, because she killed her mom and her dad. She got so bad she went to kill all the staff in the hospital so the government decided that the best idea was to get rid of her so they set up a special room to kill her, as humane as possible but it went wrong the machine they were using went wrong. And she sat there in agony for hours until she finally died. Now every week on the day of her death she returns to the person that reads this letter, on a monday night at 12:00a.m. She creeps into your room and kills you slowly, by cutting you and watching you bleed to death. Now send this to ten other pics on this one site, and she will haunt someone else who doesn't pass this on like you did. And forget about you. Example 1:Jenny didn't believe this and deleted it without even reading the whole thing! A few days later on the monday night, she was woken up by loud footsteps and heavy breathing, there was Clarissa

    Re: Manmohanjit Singh – Dostana's a parody of homosexuality,idiot.

    On the other hand- I am proud India's taking this progressive a step! Hope more happens soon!

    Re: Scatter – India isn't an Islamic nation. It's 80% Hindu! Why not read a book and broaden your mind?
    Re: DSummerfan – Why don't you venture outside of your Western bubble and travel to India - it could do you some good. It's a beautiful country with beautiful people. They're in no way primitive.



  42. 42

    Oh SCATTER, India is not an Islamic nation. It is Hindu
    country. Go back to school.



  43. 43

    Re: Scatter – It's not an Islamic nation.



  44. 44

    Re: Manmohanjit Singh – Dostana was like I Now Pronounce You Chuck and Larry. It was a comedy, it didn't feature a real homosexual couple which is MUCH more controversial.



  45. 45

    P.s– The lead actor of this film has been legally disowned by his parents, for taking up this film.

    @everyone– india is not a 'primitive land'… there are still villages and old customs, but times are indeed changing more and more every year. Also, india is a secular nation, there are sections of every religion, predominantly hindu, but living harmoniously(most of the time) with muslims. There are buddhists, jains and christians all over the country too.

    Homosexuality became a taboo later on, if you read the kamasutra closely, there r depictions of gays and lesbians. It was considered ok back then before the mughal invasion and before brahmanism became a norm (google the history you cannot understand).

    Im from india, hence i thought everyone shud just know these basic facts.

    Re: pinkmafia – only because the scum are taking over, nuke em all starting with you bitch



  47. 47

    p.p.s– i would never look at Mormons and make the same assumptions about every American. Its sad, that educated people still know such little about the world.



  48. 48

    "a step towards equality in India"? Seriously? A country that has a caste system and religious persecution? I'm a little more concerned about the beatings India has taken from Pakistan with bombings and war threats than I am about Indian gay rights at this point in time. Priorities.



  49. 49

    Dostana was a parody, though it did feature a kiss between the two male leads which is unprecedented. For a real bollywood movie that deals with this subject properly, My Brother Nikhil, demonstrates the true struggle that young gay men face. Dunno Y is not the first bollywood movie to deal with the subject Perez, and it is pretty much a joke according to all reviews, my friend who saw it said its completely insensitive and one of the worst movies ever made. "so bad its good" category.



  50. 50

    Another reason to look down on toilet they call India.



  51. 51

    Perez, I know in the celebrity world "no news is good news", but not in the real world. Just because it's about homosexuality doesn't mean it's a step towards equality. You don't seem to understand that yet.



  52. 52

    Just as I assumed before opening the comments. All the stupid anti-gay cun*ts race in with their idiotic posts. Moronic motherfuckers.



  53. 53

    Re: Poindexter-X – A perfect way, I think, to sum up this comment threat. Le sigh.
