Critic Reviews for Touch of Pink
There are two crucial bits of miscasting, one bad, one good, both distracting.
Its plot is hackneyed and banal.
An uncomfortable jumble of Harvey, Bend It Like Beckham and The Birdcage.
Much of the problem with Touch of Pink rests with Mistry, whose nice guy appeal registers even less than it did in his previous starring vehicles, The Guru and The Mystic Masseur.
MacLachlan's strong jaw line and his valiant attempt to act so very Cary aren't enough to save this film.
Audience Reviews for Touch of Pink
A BEAUTIFUL MOVIE!!! My sister was watching this, and I stopped and sat down to watch. LOVED IT!!
Enjoyable time filler, Sue Mathew is great fun as the mother.
What do you get when you're gay AND you come from a culture that ABSOLUTELY DOES NOT ALLOW IT?!?!? You create an imaginary friend who's a lot like a classic movie star from Hollywood's golden age so that he may give you advice as to what to do. This movie is soooo cute. It's basically the same storyline as Bend It Like Beckham, except there's no soccer and the main character in this movie is a gay man who likes playing with a different sort of balls. Alim must hide the fact that he's gay to his mother, a stereotypically conservative Indian woman who is coming to visit him. The comedy that ensues is somewhat predictable but also very funny and endearing. Kyle MacLachlan is superb as the Spirit of Cary Grant and is probably one of his better performances in recent memory! Except for his role in Showgirls, of course! Kidding. Watch this movie. It'll make you laugh-- or at least chuckle and relax.
