Yep, you heard it right!
One of the first Bollywood flicks to address alternative lifestyles - homosexual relationships, in particular - has already won an award at the Trikone International Film Festival in Sydney!
The festival allowed viewers to vote for their favorites from among the nominees for Best Film category, and it is hence that the response to Sanjay Sharma's film was so overwhelming that the festival had to screen the film again.
This film, apart from this recent recognition, has other accolades to its credit. It has previously won an award at the Mumbai International Queer Festival, and the two lead actors, Kapil Sharma and Yuvraaj Parashar, received awards from the government of Maharashtra for their outstanding performance.
The movie has done extremely well in the more liberal audience markets worldwide, including London and New York, but we wonder if the film, which also has a liplock shared between the male protagonists, will be as successful in its more conservative home ground!

this shouldn't even have become a movie...this movie is portraying something that i morally wrong and unnatural. i don't hold anything against or discriminate against homosexuals but i do oppose to homo relationships being publicized in such a way.
