If Islamophobic was not enough now “Homophobic” which is highly sensitive in the Western world has started in India. All these cultural trends and onslaught is led by Bollywood in India. After creating a culture of sex and lust over decades in India which has been growing to highest degree of seduction now after 2018 when Article #377 was abrogated in India legalizing LGBTQ and Gay/Lesbian marriages, Bollywood has got a new theme led by certain producers and corporations behind them who as a part or conspiracy and Pink money business are promoting this culture whereas some have got a new theme to make money.

This movie is the first star cast most explicit movie about Gay relationship produced by T-series a leading old time production house of India. This movie like few others before “Kapoor & Sons” where LGBT relationships were not direct main theme of the movie but presented indirectly or in subliminal way, but here it is direct and explicit. Even in movies like “Aligarh” it was about sympathy towards a Gay teacher.

This story about love between two guys (Gays) Kartik and Aman.  While Aman’s family tries hard to battle his love for Kartik, Kartik isn’t prepared to step back until he marries Aman.

Presenting the life of two gay men who are in love, Shubh Mangal Zyada Saavdhan depicts their struggle to convince their families to accept the relationship who are presented as Homophobic and not accepted this culture as that is something unconventional not a religious or unnatural objection .  As usual Indian movie  love stories whether between boy or girl or between same sex has to reach a happy ending which means parents accept Gay marriage.

Remember the movie is all about Gay and format is comedy. This means there is a high degree of attraction as the most hit movies in India are Comedy. Though the actor is a growing star Ayushman Khurana who has gone up very fast in act and given some big hit movies, so that is another element of attraction. And then the most important reason why it will get viewership is being present on Amazon Prime Video.
