Loev ★★★½

ok, so firstly I haven't seen weekend, to which this film undoubtedly owes much; secondly, it's pretty important to note that this is not as comfortable or unambiguous a film as it sets itself out to be, with a turn I did not anticipate or enjoy, and for that reason I'm struggling a little with my reaction to it. but as the first unapologetically and wholly gay romance I've seen in Indian film – filmed in sixteen days in secret – it's quietly, defiantly important.
