This is available on YouTube with closed captions. It's a first rate neo-noir. No songs. No Bollywood gloss or diversions. This is a straight out dark story, uncomplicated, focusing on a young man who is naive and trying to make his way after his parents are killed in an auto accident. He's poor and has two sisters he's concerned about. He gets seduced by a very sexy married woman and becomes a male prostitute. This movie doesn't let up in its depiction of a rotten society and milieu in the city (Delhi) in which taking advantage of the other guy is endemic, and people are using their positions to do it. The predominant ethic is rotten, the furthest thing from a Jewish or Christian ethic.
This is an award-winning film.
