Started in 2007 to keep a track of gay films that I watched, this blog has come much further than I had planned. There are tons of movies that I need to watch and review here. Through this blog, I want to give you genuine, my personal heart-felt review of the films that I see. These are my personal thoughts and opinions about the films and I would love to hear your thoughts on these films as well. I always reply to comments in a day or two. Please help me make my blog more popular by becoming a member, following it and by recommending it to your friends. As far as I know this is one of the very very few gay movie review blogs where reviews are not linked or copy-paste imdb summary. Enjoy and do keep writing your feedback.

Ya lyublyu tebya (Russian) [You I Love]

I am so glad i saw the movie. I have said time and again that I am a sucker for good romantic movies which slow a real slice of life. And believe me this one could be very true to someone's life.

Tim, an advertising professional and Vera, a news anchor are very much in love. They have been dating for almost a year. On the other side, an illegal immigrant Uloomji is looking for a job and s now working in a zoo. He is a free bird. One fateful night, Uloomji has an accident by Tim's car. Since it is a police case, the hospital folks refuse to look at him and so Tim takes Uloomji to his home. When Vera comes home he tells her the whole story. Next day Uloomji comes to visit again. After a few moments of controlling himself, Tim cannot control any longer and gives into the old rough world charm of Uloomji. They both seem to fall in love with each other. When Vera finds out, she doesn't know what to do. She still loves Tim very much. Tim also cares for her but doesn't love her the way he loves Uloomji. Things start getting confused. Uloomji's parents and uncle find out about him. They take him away from Tim forcefully. But somehow Uloomji escapes. Thats when Tim decides he has had enough and he loves Uloomji very much and they will go out of the country for a vacation. But Uloomji's uncle deceives them saying that his father has died. Tim asks that Uloomji should go and visit his family otherwise he will regret for life. But thats all a lie. His parents forcefully make him join army. Both Tim and Uloomji are devastated. But they promise to be back together. 2 years later, all 3 of them are together and they even have a baby now.

The chemistry between the 2 lead actors is amazing. Tim's transformation from being a complete straight man to suddenly realizing how much he loves Uloomji is amazing. Even the romance between the two is amazing. So much love, care and respect; I would want every person to have that kind of lover or companion in his/her life. Vera's confusion was also very identifiable. A woman torn in love for a man who loves other man. Sound familiar :) I dont know why I am in short of words to write much about this, but please, please watch this movie and you instantly would want to fall in love and say 'You I love.'

No second doubts about it. Definitely worth a watch. (7.5/10)
