What seemed like a tiny blip on the radar has by now completely shaken the entire network of film industry spread across the country. Easily a milestone in Indian cinema this path breaking film is arguably better than most blockbusters released this year, or for that matter any year.
The underlying mood of the film being antiestablishmentarianism, LOVE, SEX aur DHOKHA is a raw and uncompromising take on life. Deliciously entertaining, intensely honest and fiery in its mission, LSD is a riveting ride you won’t forget. Showcasing the pitiable plight of hopeless underdogs and their frantic attempts to live up against the misfortunes thrown upon them by the establishment, LSD is a running commentary of social satire at its peak. Epitomizing contemporary social scenario, LSD has an intensity that is disturbingly painful and shockingly shameful leaving you with memorable characters of outcasts, misfits, freaks and geeks. A real gem, this cinema is a challenge on the sensibilities of the Indian movie watching crowd to re-discover their sensitive sides.
Showcasing a disruptive chronological order (la strada, memento, pulp fiction, etc.) this spellbinding mockumentary, a boon for true film lovers, is simply simply not to be missed. The outstanding nonlinear narrative structure with three stories cleverly intertwined is truly refreshing to witness compared to boring social lectures of epic proportions which has become the hallmark of mainstream Indian cinema. Perhaps the most fascinating thing LSD belts out is Life as it is. It serves you a slice of current life on a platter for you to relish. Stand back in awe. This film is the sign of times.
An intense movie about frantic lives, the neoclassic LSD is a dizzying ride from silence that screams from a dead couple, to dreams and desires being annexed and annihilated by the engulfing fire of penury. LSD explores a dystopian world where love, bending knees, gets buried, amid deranged relationships between desperate people. LSD is definitely an entertaining attempt in the guise of black comedy to disembark and expose a self-righteous dysfunctional, hedonistic, dystopian society gone haywire. Go ahead and laugh yourself silly over its dark humor as you’re caught glued to every passing frame of this slick horror drama. Ultimately the joke’s on you (Read : society) as the superlatively captivating tongue in cheek title song embarks with the credits rolling in the end. What a show.
Delivering a sledgehammer impact with a treatment as furious as the message, Dibakar Banerjee is the man on fire burning all those who resist him. Bold. Daring. Dangerous. Dibakar is a force to recon. With dollops of attitude and awards predicted worldwide, this director is here to stay. Open your eyes. The master has arrived. This director has single handedly made the badshahs of this trade redundant with his genius. Uprooting the pundits of this industry as well, with simple plots and unheard actors. This is modern-day cinema at its best.
Having acquired a cult status with a cult following within days of release..
LSD is addictive. For some, it’s an obsession. I say it’s a belter.
LSD - LOVE SEX AUR DHOKHA REVIEW
LSD is a breakthrough in the art of expression. The hand-held camera view is just one part of the whole deal. The other, infinitely weightier, ingredient here is its clever subtext of social commentary. This LSD does while it lays bare a frightening emotional fabric of society - comprising shallowness, volatility and amorality all joining hands to build up to an alarming crescendo.
This digitally shot movie comprises 3 brief stories told one after another, captured by a hand-held camera, a closed-circuit TV camera and a spy cam, respectively. These sub-plots converge at unexpected p....
