Love Sex aur Dhoka (LSD)
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. The film would have a fresh cast.
Our world is 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 Paparazzi/ Twitter/ CCTVs, LSD showcases the desire to know more about others and tells people that 'the only privacy left is inside their heads'. 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..
From the National Award Winning Director Dibakar Banerjee (Khosla Ka Ghosla and Oye Lucky Lucky Oye fame), LSD explores the human emotions of Love, Sex and Dhokha (Betrayal) through very candid points of views.
We want to know what's happening behind closed doors, or catch a celeb with his pants down. It's a streak that's spilling over in our relationships, in our entertainment and the news. Even our ideas on love or sex are not our own, but borrowed from what's seen on screen
It was six years back when Dibakar wrote parts of the story, getting influenced from simple insights of real life.
In this age of online videos, Youtube, MMS, it's time we explored these mediums to tell our stories... in a format that has its own grammar.
The film was shot using cameras that were smaller than a lipstick, from inside a purse and also used infra red lights that are mostly used by soldiers in the night during war. It was necessary as the 'camera' plays an important character in the film. Its is a roller coaster ride told through the chaos of the camera that has invaded all our lives with Handy Cams filming home movies, Security cameras shooting every inch of our existence and Sting cameras uncovering uncomfortable truths!
