The sensitively handled film, directed by award-winning Indian filmmaker and gay activist Sridhar Rangayan, underlines the challenges gay men continue to face in India to come out to their family, as well as question the dominant patriarchal social mores. The film has won 24 international awards and has become a success on the international film festival circuit with selection in 72 international film festivals
Plus interview with director Sridhar Rangayan and lead actors Devansh Doshi and Mona Ambegaonkar with film critic Ashanti Omkar.
