When a film is titled Love Sex Aur Dhoka, it spells trouble from the word go…or does it? That’s not what director Dibakar Banerjee seemed to believe. He went ahead and exposed himself to any and every kind of comment or criticism that could possibly come his way. He screened the 20 min edit of his film for youngsters at SIES College, Nerul at their film festival called ‘Frames’, and led them on to a very healthy discussion on the film and their views on every topic under the sun ranging from voyeurism, caste-ism, love and sex.
This hundred and fifty minute session between the students and the director revealed that a lot of the stereotypes harnessed for so long are farce and need to be abandoned. The discussion revealed that to a lot of the youngsters ‘it was ok’ to sleep your way up the corporate ladder. Where such a forum was an eye opener for the director it was also a moment for him to celebrate as midway into the session, Dibakar was congratulated for winning the National Award for his last film Oye Lucky Lucky Oye.
