  2.  Possible Homosexuality.

Indian Coming-of-age movies: A 50-50 fare

Hmm, now that I sit back and think about it, there are Indian movies in the Coming-of-age genre. In fact, many of our current top actors and actresses have begun their careers (or at least, shot to fame) after acting in movies related to this genre. While some of these movies are very creative, thought-provoking and nostalgic, most of them are wooden. However, I compiled a list of such movies which were box-office hits and became cult movies.
