Dunno Y - a film being touted as Bollywood's answer to Brokeback Mountain - is released in Indian cinemas on Friday.
It is the first movie in the country to feature a male homosexual kiss.
But the film is being criticised by religious groups who say its subject matter is "against the order of nature". Howard Johnson reports from Mumbai.
