Subhash K Jha, Journalist and Film Critic
Loev is by far the most mature depiction of a gay relationship by an Indian filmmaker.I forgot the gender of the lovers,such is the maturity of the performances by Shiv Pandit and Dhruv Ganesh..this is a clutter-breaker of a film,our own Brokeback Mountain.4 stars'.
Jitesh Pillai, Filmfare Editor
Nice nuanced film this LOEV. Complex,fine use of silences. Delineates the intense nature of alternate sexuality. Fine acting by leads. Kudos
And contrary to expectations it isn't a coming out or tortured soul film.The angst comes because LOEV is messy,complex&ultimately uplifting
