Review of YE in Fire Island Q News

Bruce-Michael Gelbert review of Yours Emotionally! in Fire Island Q News:

"Two seasons ago, Indian filmmaker Sridhar Rangayan’s “The Pink Mirror” was the sensation of the festival. A new work of his, “Yours Emotionally,” shot in England and India, was shown this year and a hauntingly beautiful film it is, demonstrating what East and West, young and old, and straight and gay can learn from each other. Ravi and Paul leave Leiscester, England to investigate Ravi’s ancient ancestral homeland, India, where families still expect their gay sons to marry women and the caste system retains much of its rigidity. They find themselves at an exotic, erotic gay gathering, right out of the Kama Sutra... Emotions unexpectedly run high when Ravi falls for Mani---and then meets Mani’s wife-to-be. The encounters between the men here are steamy and the older gay male couple, Murthy and Anna, is strikingly portrayed."

Yours Emotionally! screened at the Fire Island Film & Video Festival (September 13 -16, 2006) on September 14, 2006 @ 11pm.

The film marked the return of the director to Fire Island where his earlier film 'The Pink Mirror (Gulabi Aaina)' screened as the Closing Night film and won the Jury Award for Best Feature.
