From the nooks and crannies they peek at them. The hidden cameras videotape them romping in bed, in departmental stores, in offices, or where there’re no prying eyes. In his third feature film Love Sex Aur Dhokha, director Dibakar Banerjee takes the viewers to a voyeuristic journey of three distinct but intersecting stories about love, sex and betrayal.
The movie breaks a new barrier in that it takes an unflinching look at sex through a sub-plot about an MMS sex scandal. It features a most eye-popping sex scene showing a totally nude couple romping on the floor.
An image from the scene that’s been leaked on the web has created quite a stir about the explicit sex scene, upsetting Dibakar Banerjee, who says the movie should not be judged from just one scene.
As Dibakar tells a tabloid, “I want the scene to be judged as part of the film. To use the picture out of context will be damaging to the film. The idea is not to draw vicarious pleasure from it.” Supporting the director, producer Ekta Kapoor too goes verbal, “The purpose of the nude scene is not to titillate.”
Dibakar defines LSD as a “gut-wrenching film”. He just hopes that the Censor Board understands the significance of the sex scene and the message film wants to deliver through it.
Here, you can catch a fleeting glimpse of that bold sex scene in the official trailer of the film:
