Time Out says

4 out of 5 stars
“I’m gay; he’s my boyfriend,” Kunal (Abraham) lies (?) in order to secure the tenancy of his dream Miami pad with his ‘most special friend’ Sameer (Bachchan). This pretence leads to complications when they both fall for their sexy female flatmate, Neha (Chopra). With homosexuality illegal and a taboo topic in India, this is the first significant step by Bollywood to address the issue in the widest commercial context. With three major gorgeous A-list stars, a saucy Shilpa Shetty dance number and generous shots of hunky Abraham in his underpants, this is huge camp fun. Beneath the frivolity is a non-preachy plea for tolerance and acceptance. The result is a cautious but groundbreaking coming out of the closet comic entertainer. Here’s wishing the boyz a happy life together.
Written by Anil Sinanan
