Well, this is a two horse race. I’m not even gonna pretend that anything else is in the running. The cool thing is, these two films represent two different and equally valid ways of bringing queer content to the screen. And we get to pick which one is “gayest” (in the best possible way)!
Ek Ladki Ko Dekha To Aisa Laga
This movie is explicitly specifically about the experience of being gay in India, from childhood to adulthood. That’s the whole plot. And we get a love story in there, and a coming out story, and all these beautiful wonderful things. Just, SO GAY.
This movie is explicitly specifically NOT about being gay. It’s about action and fight scenes and spy versus spy and stuff. But at the same time, the chemistry between the two male leads is so vibrant and powerful that the audience is swept away with their emotions. Just, SO GAY.
So, which is your pick? The movie that builds a whole narrative around coming out and so on, or the movie that just has a lot of love scenes between two men without ever explicitly calling them “gay”?
