Creators in other languages are searching for innovative ideas every time and they have shown the boldness to execute it onscreen; their viewers are also happy to welcome something which is new and the best. Though we are not ready to inspire such an idea in malayalam, we also like watching a different film that comes from outside the state. We can't blame our directors, as the viewers are also responsible for such an ou
tcome. Films like 'Kerala Cafe', 'Paleri Manikyam Oru Paathira Kolapathakathinte Katha', 'Pakal Nakshathrangal', 'Thirakkadha', 'Danny' etc were different and good, but the question is that how many of us have watched these films in theaters and made it a commercial success ?!

Anyway, the new bollywood film, 'Love Sex Aur Dhokha' is different in the way in which it is presented. After giving hit films like 'Khosla Ka Ghosla' and 'Oye Lucky ! Lucky Oye !', director Dibakar Banerjee is back with a new film named 'LSD'. The specialty is that the film is divided into three stories and each of them is linked with each other at a certain point. The main attraction lies in the story telling technique where hidden cameras plays a major character here. Handycam, CCTV cameras and a hidden spy camera are used in these three different stories.

The first
story is about a film institute student (Anshuman Jha) who is directing his debut film. He gets in love with the rich girl (Shruthi) who did the heroine role in the movie. The incidents are captured through the handy cam own by the director here. At one stage they got married without informing her relatives. What happens to the couple is shown later.

The second story is about the happenings inside a super market. Adarsh (Rajkumar Yadav) is working there, he is having some financial problems. His friend asks him to make a porn clip from the security cameras installed there, to make money. Reshmi (Neha Chauhan), who is a co-worker, became the victim of such a fraud play.

The third story is about a struggling journalist Prabhat (Amit Sial). He meets Naina (Arya Devdutta), an ambitious singer who decides to commit suicide after a notable pop star, who is also a womanizer, refuses to give her a chance to sing a song. Using a hidden cam, Naina decided to take revenge on the pop star with the help of Prabhat. The first and third stories are linked with the super market related to the second story at one stage.

Cinematographer Nikos Andritsakis did an extra ordinary job here; he is the person who gav
e the film an unconventional look. Certainly you will feel that the whole film might have been shot using a hidden cam. Editing by Namrata Rao also helped a lot to convey the plot. The boldness of director Dibakar Banerjee should be appreciated for doing such a product which will break all the rules of the filmi-language. Kanu Behl (co-writer of the movie with the director) had also done a good job. The second story is so much relevant and looks realistic in the current period. All the artists in the film are non-popular faces, they all have performed well.

Each and every frame of 'Love Sex Aur Dhokha' will be like an output looking through a digital camera, you will be having battery backup emblem on the top left, current time on the top right, cam name and film running duration on the bottom left, 'rec' em
blem on the bottom right parts. This is one such film where you don't have any background music used (i am not forgetting such an experiment done by director Jayaraj in the film 'Gulmohar').

If you are ready to face the new and rare experimental method in the film making, then you should watch 'Love Sex Aur Dhokha' (if you don't have time to spare for this film now, then don't forget to watch it when you get a good dvd of the same).

Rating : 8 / 10
