Among the numerous Best categories that do rounds in the final days of
each passing year, and the first few of the new one, here's bringing you
something brand new!
For an industry that (strictly) shunned
the bold acts, lip-locks have long been a no-no thing onscreen. However,
times change, and so do the set of rules. The turn of this century had
seen Bollywood take a leap in defying restraining orthodoxy, or
cultural inhibitions - whichever way one chooses to tag them; and of
recent the trend of intimate scenes has been gaining blood.
The year 2010 alone witnessed its share of (more than) fair liplocks, which we list for you here after.
Situationally the love and wife of
another, Barbara Mori, who plays the female lead of this multi lingual
Roshan venture, ought not to be in love with Hrithik, her male co-star.
So the union of these two, with a kiss that was long coming through the
preceding sequences, shows inevitable traces of guilty hesitance,
mingled with unsuppressed want. For everything about the movie that did
fail at BO, Mori and Roshan did make a watch worthy and very convincing
couple onscreen, even if revolting to the bidden mind. No wonder all
those tongues wagged about inside gossip in their mutual personal lives!
Anushka Sharma and Shahid Kapoor
Movie : BADMAASH COMPANYShedding Shy Covers:
Uncomfortable with shooting for a smooch scene for their movie,
, Anushka SHarma sure took time opening up for a
comfortable onscreen performance for the same. It was heard from sources
on the sets that the lead actors had gone absconding for several hours
after giving a series of unconvincing shots, and when they finally
returned, a single retake did it - seen in the sizzling car space
liplock shared by the two with the cops on their trail. Anushka Sharma and Ranveer Singh
Movie : BAND BAAJA BAARAAT
Drunken Love-foolery: A
typical case of UST between business partners and thick mates Shruti
and Bitto, aka Anushka and Ranveer. It is a celebration evoked
inebriation that finally gets these whose chemistry has been glaring
back at the audience all along to open up with each other, discarding
aside their 'no love in business' policy with a dazedly gentle kiss that
progresses into much more...
Vidya Balan and Arshad Warsi
Movie : ISHQIYARustic Games:
This was one onscreen liplock marked by the ardor of the rustic, and a
passion for physical intimacy that inevitably came across as a
primordial need for man. Vidya playing a gray gaon ki chorri was bold
not in the typical sense, but in the very basic and raw way, a job that
she did with much efficiency. Arshad was a perfectly complementing
onscreen partner. Maria Gomez and Madhavan
Movie : TEEN PATTIThe Lured Amateur:
on his over night riches, Madhvan - playing a character who can walk
int every trap laid out for him under the impression of making it big -
indulges in physical pleasures, liberated and stressed at once. Emraan Hashmi and Shella Allen
Movie : CROOKSerial Kissing:
the pro at his job. Emran Hashmi has to be the kind of path-breaker in
the field of onscreen liplocks, as perhaps Newton was to mechanical
physics! (No offense!) As a Gangster
, or as a Crook
comes about to be showcased into the greater than greatest intimate
scenes time and again, so much, that one doesn't even find it out of the
ordinary any more; or quite the contrary in fact! Priyanka Chopra and Ranbir Kapoor
Movie : ANJAANA ANJAANIAfloat In Love:
sizzling scene between these two very popular actors and leading
costars in the movie Anjaana Anjaani upon their final candid confession
while bubbling over the freezing waters an air tube circling them. Even
as the rescue team engages in a savior act, these give no damn to the
surrounding (dis)comfort in expressing their love(lip)lock! Neil Nitin Mukesh and Deepika Padukone
Movie : LAFANGEY PARINDEY
Dippy and Neil share a kiss - in a gush of relief, building
exhilaration and subtle amusement at their relief and joy! A prefect job
of portraying one feeling possessive and overjoyed in the a single
physical expression of his love for his girl by Neil.
Ranbir Kapoor and Sarah Thompson
Movie : RAAJNEETICrossfire Bond:
A peaceful love across many lands blooms, until it becomes the
politically incorrect deed. In this shared liplock between Ranbir and
Sarah who play eventually ripped apart lovers in the movie, it is the
man assuring his love of his fidelity and intention towards what they
share, and of his character integrity - a single gesture that seals her
questions which are certainly not unfound.
Sizzling chemistry, or offensive boldness?! Whichever way you perceive
these once upon a time forbidden scenes, be sure to speak your mind. And
pick the best/worst liplock of 2010 in your opinion!
