It's completely going to affect the outcome of forthcoming election results. All parties are heavily banking their chances on the success of this film. Every Indian is hereby requested to make this path breaking film a must-watch.
Haven't seen the film, but have read Chugtai: Bold for her times, but rather commonplace otherwise. Manto, on the other hand, is a much better writer, with a wider and more universal appeal.
Don't know if this lesbian theme is real in the film, or has just been imagined by the author/blog he refers to. Just a reference to a quilt could be accidental, and these guys might be reading some meaning in it.
