Time Out: Film Review – Being Gay is Not a Crime

Time Out started as a 12-minute short film that was showcased at the Cannes film festival in 2012. As the film received a lot of appreciation globally, it was made into a feature film. First-time director Rikhil Bahadur’s movie Time Out is the heart-wrenching story of two brothers Mihir and Gaurav Aggarwal. 

The film is a high school drama that revolves around a group of students and their priorities that include friendship, music and love. The twist in the story happens when the secret of the older brother- who’s homosexual- is revealed to the family.
What would you do if you found out your kid is gay? How would you react? Would you be calm? Would you be able to take the pressure and embrace all of it with love? Well, Time Out is about just that. The peace of the Aggarwal family is disturbed, once they find out that their older son Mihir is gay. Mihir on the other hand is the college stud who every girl fancies. He even has a younger brother who looks up to him. The film is not only about Mihir and his parents’ aggression, but also his brother Gaurav who is traumatized when he finds Mihir in bed with a guy. He is unable to cope with that, and the film then takes you on an emotional roller-coaster ride that deals with the problems faced by homosexuals in society and even in their own family.
Despite having a cast so fresh and inexperienced, the movie manages to keep you entertained throughout. The casting is actually brilliant, and every character has played their role with elan. Brimming over with fun and catchy music, Time Out is refreshing and an important film for today’s world. It will definitely keep you enthralled, and help you sort out your own views about homosexuality. The message of the film is simple- no matter what, you must learn to accept yourself just the way you are. Being gay is not a crime nor is it against nature.
Why You Should Watch This Movie: 
Rikhil Bahadur’s film is a gem that you rarely get to see these days. It is a family film for all age groups, that tackles the sensitive issue of homosexuality with maturity. A film that you must take some "time out" and watch with your family and friends.

    A new director Rikhil Bahadur’s take on the complex gay issue. He looks at it from a totally new perspective. The performances by the actors are natural. The music by Sandesh is catchy and peppy. Overall a movie worth watching and you will come out rethinking the issue from an angle not discussed before.

    Excellent movie. ” Time Out” is an award winning movie. Very well directed by Rikhil Bahadur. The movie kept us involved with the issues of today’s younger generation.
    Yes, the mysterious emotion “LOVE”, is been handled with great maturity, taking care of all the emotions of the relations attached to it. How the people connected takes and how it should be taken is so well directed throughout. “FEELING” that I am no more a kid, it’s my life, girls no more at back stage, siblings love and respect, parents being liberal yet been blamed for it, parents tough attitude and its impact, responsibility of principal, handling life game by coach, rocking music, beautiful and meaningful lyrics and what not, GREAT WORK (y)
    A must see movie for all generation to understand the running speed of this younger generation.
    “LIVE & LET LIVE” is all time proverb.
    Congratulation Rikhil Bahadur , Pranay Pachauri, Chirag Malhotra and all the team of “Time Out” for the marvellous work.
    My best wishes are with you all 🙂
