Reasons why 'Love Sex aur Dhokha' Rocks..

Yes, Dibakar Banerjee's LSD rocks and how !! After outstanding two movies, Khosla ka Ghosla and Oye Lucky Lucky Oye! he has done it again. The movies is almost flawless. After all, nobody's perfect.. Here are the reasons why I loved it -

1. Absolutely real characters. Always seen in Dibakar's movies. Here too, he has got fabulous cast that one can hardly identify that they are 'acting'. Everything is real and works wonders. Especially I loved the first couple in which girl was so real.

2. Real situations. Nothing filmy. Everything, every feeling, every relations are believable. There is a scene in which the girl who is in love, meets her friend, both are so excited for each other. The giggles, the excitement of the two friends, Awesome!

3. The Editing, Screenplay & visuals. That hold you to the edge of seat. Well, not a thriller but there are scenes which shakes you. And the sleek editing complements the brilliant screenplay. Kudos to Namrata Rao the Editor and Kanu Behl/Dibakar for screenplay. How brilliantly all three stories weaved with each other is interesting. And also interesting is movie's look. The 'hand held camera effect'. Perfect !!

4. Cliches avoided. While the storyline is not 'that' unique. Director has avoided almost all cliches which I feared this movie could have.

5. Satire and Humor. Both are already mastered by Dibakar. In this, he assures the same from the opening credits itself. Remember how Oye Lucky... had its title credits on a Truck? This movie has gone far away with hilarious titles. Throughout the movie, there isn't dull moment where one can feel bored.

6. Fresh Talents. Never seen before faces makes the movie a genuine experience. Anshuman Jha, Shruti, Rajkumar Yadav, Neha Chauhan, Arya, Herry and Amit Sial, all are fantastic.

7. Chart busters. Yes, and the music. By Sneha Khanwalkar, is played in background throughout the movie. Never have I heard Kailash Kher in such songs. Applause for Sneha !!

Only concern for me is the language of LSD. Which is explicit at some places. But again, this is not a YRF movie where you can expect mushy things. DB has already warned you abt it, SO take his advice, decide and enjoy the ride.


  1. I've been hearing lots of positives about this movie, i'll have to check out his previous work before watching this

  2. His previous two works were good but this is his masterpiece - superb !!

    I gave it a 4.5/5

  3. I haven't seen his earlier works either, but the buzz on this one is way up there and seems like one not to miss. After such a dismal 2009 it looks like this year we're getting much more interesting films.

  4. yaa....darshit...u r right...i havnt seen title credit lyk dis...n the camera effects rememberd me the hollywood flick "peranormal activities"...really it was awesome movie....

    Yes, you must check out his past works. Both of them are fantastic and so real.

    Hi, welcome to my blog. My choice for best of his work is Oye Lucky... Abhay was fantastic in that. Also, remember the cute lovestory between young lucky and greeting card girl?

    Hilarious the credits are. haven't seen Paranormal... but yes, by the promos, one can see the similarities.

    oh, as I said earlier, both of his earlier works are fantastic.
    Still, I dont think even 2010 has good things in store. While checking out the list of release dates on bollywoodhungama, i doubt if any big firecracker is up in this year. Lets see.

  7. This looks like my kind of film!! I think I will like since we both have similar taste :)

    DVDs are out already on Moser Baer. Cant wait to see what all bloggers have to say about the movie.

    I regret having watched the movie, it was simply too disturbing. Whereas Khosla ka Ghosla and Oye Lucky were really entertaining without being unreal, this one was too stark without being entertaining at all. I wonder why he bothered making it.

    I don't deny that this movie was real brainwork, but there was nothing positive about it. The intentionally shaky camerawork gave me a headache, and some of the scenes and dialogue made me physically sick! It was as if the director was punishing his audience.
