When hot shot, Wall Street dealmaker Jai thinks of putting some pleasure into his 48 hour business trip to Mumbai, Sahil, his young, music-producer friend, drops everything, including his reckless boyfriend Alex, to help him execute the perfect getaway. Hiking the hills and canyons of Maharashtra, amidst half-attempted conversations and sudden silences, business calls and old jokes, the friends discover there is more than just time-zones keeping them apart. Things take another turn when Alex shows up with a new male-companion at his side, throwing up old conflicts and bringing unanswered questions to the fore.
LOEV is about this weekend between friends where chances are missed, truths evaded and among all the stumbles, the love that unexpectedly prevails. The film was shot in complete secrecy in India, a country where homosexuality is still criminalised and was described as “Quietly Revolutionary” by Screen Daily.

Nolan Mack is sixty. Married to Joy, a charming and intelligent woman and well-regarded in the bank where he works, Noland leads a quiet uneventful life. But is he happy, as his boss at the bank once asks him? One night, as he drives back home, he nearly runs into a gay prostitute. Sorry for what might have happened, Nolan starts a conversation with the young man named Leo and ends up in a hotel room. Not for paid sex as Leo expects and instead he finds Nolan falling in love with him. For, having been gay since the age of twelve, Nolan has never been able to express his sexual orientation and Leo happens to crystallise all his feelings and desires.
But is a prostitute the ideal object of a romantic love? And to what extent will it affect his married life and professional career? Boulevard is a film not to be missed and shows Robin Williams in his final on-screen role.
