Love Sex Aur Dhokha Movie Review

Love Sex Aur Dhokha (Hindi)

Release Date:
March 19, 2010

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 ALT Entertainment, 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.

Dibakar Banerjee pulls off a courageous experiment, even if that’s not quite the same as a satisfying movie experience

The New Indian Express

The film, with three inter-connected stories on love, sex and betrayal, is a grim, deeply unsettling and yet compelling portrait of urban India.

LSD is a good try with new storytelling and camera techniques. But it does not have mass appeal or repeat value. Strictly for multiplexes

It's one of those films that grab your attention the moment you've settled into your seat, and it doesn't let go till the very end. It's provocative, it's unsettling and occasionally disturbing too

The film however effectively exposes the fat, sexual underbelly that sags out of the middles of this disturbingly prejudiced middle India

Hindustan Times

It holds up an unflinching mirror to the primal screws that the world turns on, and shows us the way we are

Indian Express

LSD is raw and courageous; it is not pretty, but it has beauty. It’s a disturbing world, one that you can’t help being stung by.

It's bleak, bittersweet, funny and markedly unglamorous, and yet you come out humming the theme tune, your head blown clear off your shoulders


The film is bold, bare, intense, stark and dark but Bannerjee’s storytelling is so superlative that it stimulates your senses without having to resort to tawdry elements


Banerjee weaves three inspired-by-life stories in his endeavour to entertain and shock and make a larger point about the voyeuristic nature of our society, all at the same time. LSD is edgy, provocative, and honest

A historic piece of cinema guaranteed to revolutionise independent filmmaking in the country

The Hindu

Dibakar Banerjee's film is meant to be seen -- and savoured -- by shedding all your moth-balled beliefs about how commercial cinema must or must not be
