The film traces the relationship between two young men who do fall in love but fail to find a conducive atmosphere to freely express it. On the one hand, there is family pressure and on the other there is social derision which forces this gay couple to remain in the closet and hope for a new, more liberal world order.
The film has had its fair share of trouble, both with the Censor Board and then with the self-appointed moral police which has threatened the lead actors with dire consequences for portraying a homosexual relationship. Sure does speak poorly of our prudish society....
Dunno Y definitely isn't India's answer to Brokeback Mountain, even though the film makers have tried to be bold and adventurous while portraying the passion between the protagonists: a sleaze club dancer and a sedate married man with middle class bearings (read morality). But the film perks up more because of the veteran women -- Helen and Zeenat Aman -- who are fresh and vibrant as the quarrelsome saas-bahu jodi. If Zeenat still looks glamorous as the single mother who tries to provide for her family after being abandoned by husband, Kabir Bedi, then Helen oozes charm as the vitriolic mother-in-law who breathes venom, yet stands by her daughter-in-law in times of stress. Between them, the seasoned actors create enough moments to make the film watchable in places.
