India: On movie reviews and the “straight” taste

typos, gravity and other mishaps doesn't quite take to a movie review in a newspaper. “This is a generalisation. The derogatory tone it takes also implies that homosexual men do not have good taste – well, not Mr. Kamath's taste. With what conviction can Mr. Kamath assert that only women and homosexual men would like a film that he himself has taken great pains to criticize on a public forum? Assuming that the film is, in fact, as poorly made as Mr. Kamath decrees, are we to understand that women and homosexual men do not possess the discernment to make that judgement?”
