Good taste, pop colour Miami locations, high-end costumes, make-up styling and the A-grade Dharma Productions values add up to a zingy entertainer.

It irreverently normalizes a topic that has been virtually absent from screens in India (where gay sex is still technically illegal), and does so using contemporary Bollywood's best not-so-secret weapon: star power.

The best and funniest Bollywood film I've seen in a very long time.

Pic is largely sustained by the trio's screen chemistry, with Bachchan especially good at the louche comic stuff.

Cross I Now Pronounce You Chuck & Larry with the all-but forgotten 1970s farce The Gay Deceivers, then dress it up with elaborate musical sequences: Et voila!

Big, colorful, delightfully dumb Bollywood "gateway" movie could be a perfect crossover vehicle for U.S. audiences.

A pure star vehicle, gliding along on charm and timing -- exactly the sort of comfort cinema Hollywood now seems incapable of making.

By turns exuberant and goofy and mushy and yearning.

Overall, this film is a mixed bag. Although there are comical moments, they're mostly variations on one joke. And that one joke is entirely dependent on caricature.
