Where did you watch this movie?

In the film, three stages of life have been shown: childhood, youth, and adulthood. The protagonist is Tanmay, a gay man who during childhood adopts feminine behaviours, concerning his parents. They consult a doctor, and apply parental and social pressure to modify their son. During his youth, he is pressured to marry, and derided by his fellow college students as "special". Eventually, he is forced to leave his home. The film then turns to later in his life, when Tanmay and Aniket adopt a child together, naming him "Shlok". The boy grows to become a successful businessman, but his gay parents keep their distance from him to avoid burdening him with social stigma. Shlok meets a woman, Disha, whom he wishes to marry, but his parents' homosexuality becomes an impediment. This movie is a portrayal of the social obstacles against gay people in Indian society, in a format divided into three separate vignettes.

Trivia:
Instead of songs, this movie has used poetry to depict feelings in movie. Its poems are written by Milan Devmani and voiced-over by RJ Dhwanit (Radio Mirchi) and RJ Devki (Red FM).

This film portrays how lesbians and gay men have a part in society, and shows the situations and conditions they experience. Mallika Sarabhai and Onir have also supported this movie's social relevance and the need to create awareness.

Due to the sensitive nature of the subject matter the filmmaker had to seek legal relief to get the same tax incentives of other films. With respect to censorship issues, Gohil notes that even five years ago the film would have been received negatively, but now it has succeeded in receiving an "A" ("Adults Only") rating from the Censor Board of India.

It was chosen as India’s entry to the Oscars.

This is the first Gujarati movie to explore the subject of homosexuality in India.
