The first Bollywood film to feature a lesbian relationship is a groundbreaking and entertaining romance. Some love stories are not simple, Sweety’s is one such story. She has to contend with her over-enthusiastic family that wants to get her married, a young writer who is completely smitten by her, and a secret that she harbours close to her heart. To be true to herself and follow the path to happiness and love might mean leaving her family and community, but she desperately wants to be accepted by those around her. Resolving these issues proves hilarious, touching and life changing.
