Kuala Lumpur – A controversial gay-themed movie raked in more than 1 million ringgit (322,580 dollars) within its first five days in Muslim Malaysia, surprising the producer and critics alike, the official Bernama news agency reported Wednesday.

Dalam Botol, which translates as ‘In a Bottle,’ opened to packed houses after being cleared by government censors.

The film tells the story of a man who gets a sex change to satisfy his male lover, only to be jilted by that same partner.
