Super Deluxe

Top of the list definitely has to be Super Deluxe. A collection of 4 different stories linked to each other is all we can tell you about the movie as we do not want to give away the plot.

Evening Shadows

Directed by our very own and extremely talented director Sridhar Rangayan, who is also an openly gay man, this movie perfectly shows the struggles of a religious south Indian mother to accept her son’s sexuality. Mona Ambegaonkar’s powerful performance makes this movie definitely worth a watch.

My Brother Nikhil

Directed by the super talented openly gay bollywood director Onir, My Brother Nikhil was and still remains one of the few mainstream movies in India to talk about HIV. The movie shows the trauma of this closeted gay man who contracts HIV very well.

Ek Ladki Ko Dekha To Aisa Laga

A romantic comedy drama which after a very long time in India showed a lesbian relationship in a mainstream film portrayed by Sonam Kapoor. Written by the beautiful Ghazal Dhaliwal who is an openly transgender woman, we definitely found the movie cute!

I am

Directed by Onir again, this movie consists of 4 short films which are all based of real life instances.Talking about taboo topics such as child abuse, homosexuality and sperm donation, this movie was far ahead of it’s time.
