Mango Soufflé2002

  • 2.8
The first openly gay male film from India, MANGO SOUFFLE is an eye-opening exploration of gay sexuality and relationships in a culture that is far from accepting. This heartfelt drama begins when gay fashion designer Kamlesh, reeling from a recently ended relationship, invites a group of friends (of all sorts) for dinner for a special announcement. The situation reaches a boiling point when Kamlesh's sister arrives with her new fiancпїЅ, a man with an explosive secret.

Superb film, fully engaging from beginning to end with the out-of-the-blue plot twists and the increasing suspense of a murder mystery -- but no murder. It is a fascinating peek into gay culture and aspirations in India and the long road ahead. Great characters, writing, acting. More, please ;)

It's an entertaining fluff movie, even though the gay male characters are stereotypical and seem like they were lifted out of "Boys in the Band."

Charming but a little bit disorganized plotwise ... still, it's heart's in the right place.

Gave it three stars for its historical treatment of homosexuality in India. Still a touchy subject there. Cinematography was fair, as was the acting. Low budget indie effort, but perhaps worth exploring. Not life changing, as there are many other movies more compelling in this genre, and more insightful in their perspective of what it is and sometimes what it means to be gay.

Story is interesting. Some good directing and acting here and there.
