Indian Gay Love Flick Now on Netflix
Sudhanshu Saria’s debut feature Loev, a gay love story shot on location in India, received an exclusive global launch May 1 on Netflix.
“I didn’t think it would be possible to cast or finance a film like this,” says Saria in a statement. “So to find ourselves on the cusp of a worldwide release is truly spectacular. It speaks to Netflix’s taste and the way in which they empower filmmakers.”
Loev—shot secretly in just a few days due to the filmmaker’s concerns around India’s ant-gay laws, tells the story of a desi Wall Street dealmaker who’s life is upended on a hiking trip with an old friend who’s disenchanted with his boyfriend. Much desi drama ensues. The film has received positive reviews—even in mainstream Indian media like the Indian Standard: “Loev is a tender yet brutal, slender yet sturdy road film strewn with clues to the heartbreak that eventually awaits those who dare not love beyond the prescribed boundaries”
