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 â€“ through handy cams filming home movies, security cameras shooting every inch of existence, mobile phones transmitting love messages, sting cameras uncovering uncomfortable truths.

It's bleak, bittersweet, funny and markedly unglamorous, and yet you come out humming the theme tune, your head blown clear off your shouldersRead more
The film is bold, bare, intense, stark and dark but Bannerjeeâ€™s storytelling is so superlative that it stimulates your senses without having to resort to tawdry elementsRead more
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 honestRead more
