Director Statement

Making homosexuality legal is not enough.

Even though the Supreme Court has finally ruled that homosexual acts are now legal, there has been an uncertain period in the Country recent past when a lower Court overruled the Government’s Bill initially legalising it. During that time so many people came out of the closet as gay publically only then to discover that they later faced the real possibility of criminal charges. Besides the facts of the Law itself, there were also the attitudes of society to deal with, notable the police and other authorities charged with enforcing laws. Reading so many similar stories in newspapers made think about it and then I decide to take these stories to the audience through my medium of expression. Vilom is an outcome of this journey.
