Dibakar Banerjee's Love Sex Aur Dhokha (2010) Hindi Movie

Love Sex Aur Dhokha 2010 Poster Directed by Dibakar Banerjee, Bollywood Hindi film Love Sex Aur Dhoka (loosely translates into Love Sex and Betrayal) promises to be a interesting departure from mainstream Indian commercial cinema, insofar as based on the official synopsis posted at Facebook, the film is perhaps a collage of amateur and professional handy-cam shots, security camera footage and such. This concept has been tried before, most famously in the Hollywood horror blockbuster The Blair Witch Project (1999) that was largely shot with handy-cams in our neighboring Seneca State Park a few miles from Rockville, MD. It remains to be seen how the film performs commercially in a country that is notoriously immature when it comes to expectations from a Bollywood flick - a fact amply demonstrated by a film like Ajab Prem Ki Ghazab Kahani (2009) inexplicably making decent money at the box-office.

LSD has the advantage of having three keywords in the title that will cause it to stick in everybody's mind, expecially if we consider the three-letter acronym, which is perhaps going to compete with Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds in terms of mindshare retention. The poster (left) is craftily done, though the position implied is probably pretty difficult to achieve ... the crew of the LSD doubtless displays a high degree of intelligence, a welcome departure from the cheapo tricks in trailers like those of 2009 disasters like Blue and Kaminey.

The movie is produce by Ekta Kapoor / Balaji Motion Pictures.

Official Synopsis

Love Sex aur Dhokha is a film about voyeurism. It is essentially about how we have become a generation of voyeurs and flashers simultaneously. This film is about keyhole. On one side of the keyhole is a guy who is peeping in and on other side, there is a person who is hoping that someone is peeping in, and then its us, who are seeing all this. And it is adding bizarre subtext to our society. On television, newspapers, other media, we are obsessed with the most meaningless trivia of what other people are doing about their life.

Directed by Dibakar Banerjee (Khosla Ka Ghosla, Oye Lucky, Lucky Oye) & Produced by Balaji Motion Pictures, LSD explores the human emotions of love, sex & betrayal through very candid points of view.

The film is a roller coaster ride told through the chaos of the camera that has invaded all our lives – through handy cams filming home movies, security cameras shooting every inch of existence, mobile phones transmitting love messages, sting cameras uncovering uncomfortable truths.
