Provocatively titled "Love Sex aur Dhokha" deals with the idea and concepts of sex in small-town India, told from the point of view of different cameras and hitherto unknown actors. Dibakar Banerjee the new age Bollywood filmmaker has a unique sensibility and a keen eye for the idiosyncrasies and problems a new India is facing.
Whether it was the corrupt property dealer in "Khosla ka Ghosla" or the bittersweet tale of a crook in "Oye Lucky Lucky Oye" he pulls off his films with just the right amount of sauciness and dry humour.
The movie deals with love, sex and betrayal in small towns in India shown through handy cams, hidden cameras, CCTVs and mobile cameras. Given the bold subject matter it's not surprising that the movie is generating a lot of buzz.
The film takes into the heart of three contemporary, unusual and real tales of love stories- Love, Sex and Dhokha unfolding across and weaving through each other.
Love Sex aur Dhokha aka LSD takes us into the heart of three stories unfolding across and weaving through each other - contemporary, unusual, real tales of love.
In a second rate film institute somewhere deep in the redneck hinterland of North India, a final year student gears up for his diploma film. In pristine tackiness, with an amateur small town cast, Rahul starts etching out the perennial themes of Great Star Studded Backlit Bollywood Love in his magnum opus...And then he falls in love with his heroine, Shruti.
Somewhere in the same city, Adarsh - the all knowing, tech savvy, never short of words, security camera agency exec - installs four security cameras in a small upcoming 24-hour departmental store franchise. Always floating bizarre scam ideas to get rich, Adarsh hits upon the idea of making a porn clip through the security cameras in the shop. He starts to woo Rashmi - the plain, pimply, dark and quiet salesgirl - almost disinterested in her... when suddenly, a shootout happens in the store! Rashmi hares around, totally in charge, and saves a life. For the first time, Adarsh notices a woman in Rashmi!
In another corner of the city, Prabhat - a misogynist sting journalist - teeters on the brink of total meltdown. Going through a divorce, about to be fired from his job, he attempts a series of failed suicides... On one of them, he meets Naina who is also trying to commit suicide - she had been promised a music video by Loki Local, India's reigning Bhangra Hip Hop star... she slept with him for the same but the video finally went to a Russian blonde. Prabhat can see the sting right in front of his eyes! Prabhat and Naina come closer over a series of attempts to seduce, blackmail, threaten Loki. They plan the final sting where Loki will be caught on tape trying to buy footage of his indiscretions...
The world we live in & LSD:
A world driven by reality TV shows and voyeur cam clips on cell phones, the new media revolution caters to that largely suppressed hunger for 'discovering without being discovered'.
From sting operations to sex scandals to a seemingly innocent home video of a couple making love - Indian youth has seen it all. BUT as a viral. Without necessarily paying for it.
A world that attaches a premium to making personal life public deliberately / accidentally / unintentionally...
