First Trailer for Anthology Film 'Lust Stories' About Romance in India
"You always hurt people that you love!" Netflix has unveiled an official trailer for an anthology film titled Lust Stories, telling four different stories about modern romance and love in India. The film is directed by four major directors: Karan Johar, Anurag Kashyap, Zoya Akhtar and Dibakar Banerjee. They previously made the anthology film Bombay Talkies in 2013, and this is the follow-up, giving us a look at the trials and tribulations of love in India. The full cast of Indian actors includes Bhumi Pednekar, Neil Bhoopalam, Kiara Advani, Vicky Kaushal, Neha Dhupia, Manisha Koirala, Sanjay Kapoor, Radhika Apte, Jaideep Ahlawat, and Akash Thosar. This doesn't look that amazing, but I'm curious to see a film about the different sides of love from an entirely different country and culture. Available on Netflix next month.
Here's the first official trailer for India's Lust Stories, direct from Netflix's YouTube:
Lust Stories is an anthology that explores contemporary relationships through four intriguing stories. The anthology, directed by four powerhouse directors -- Karan Johar, Anurag Kashyap, Zoya Akhtar and Dibakar Banerjee - portrays varied dimensions of love, lust, power, status and romance, from the eyes of the women in the stories, and what they want. Lust Stories is directed by acclaimed Indian filmmakers: Karan Johar (My Name Is Khan), Anurag Kashyap (Gangs of Wasseypur), Zoya Akhtar (Life is Precious), and Dibakar Banerjee (Shanghai). The same four filmmakers also made the anthology film Bombay Talkies in 2013, which was meant to celebrate the one hundred years of Hindi cinema. Netflix will debut the film streaming exclusively starting June 15th this summer. How does this look? Want to watch?
I don't know, I'm very cautious about Indian films. I usually have bad experience with them. But I might try this one. Although, the violent way a lot of them treat women really scare me ...

Not for me.

I wonder if this wacky series covers the whole forced marriage thing. You know when brides and grooms are forced to marry people they have never met before. Or if they cover the prepubescent girls forced to marry grown men? Or the stonings many women and girls get as a wedding gift if they ask for a prenuptial. Honor killings. Now that makes a crazy theme for a series on Love in India.

From the looks of it, one of the stories will be about forced marriage. Not sure about violence or anything else... Perhaps the point of the film is to try and encourage and inspire more people to seek true love and go against the traditions.
