Dunno Y Na Jaane Kyun (2010)

    Release date 12 Nov 2010

    Critics Review

    • In an informal chat with me a few months ago, after watching Dunno Y Na Jaane Kyun at a private screening, director Sanjay Sharma enlightened me that his endeavour in making the film is to drive home the fact that there's nothing anomalous about being homosexual. "Through this film, I want to highlight and draw attention to the relationships between gay people. Their sentiments and emotions. The idea is not to poke fun at the gay community. In fact, the intent is to make a film that looks at the issue and the gay community in a very serious perspective," he remarked.

      Very noble intentions, I must pronounce, but do the gracious objectives of the director that he sets out to achieve come across effectively on celluloid? Does the film come across as an emotional, sensitive and a ground-breaking experience? Let me attempt to examine...

      Homosexuality is still taboo in India and Dunno Y Na Jaane Kyun attempts to tell a story that's shades different from Fire and Girlfriend or even Brokeback Mountain. Engaging at times, but amateurish at places, the film has the courage to go where most Hindi films have not dared to enter. The writing [script: Kapil Sharma] holds your interest in most parts.
