They say the Bollywood box office sizzles only with Shah Rukh Khan and sex. Sex? Has Bollywood ever made a 'sex movie'? Yes, they lock lips, cross marital boundaries to hop into bed... Jism has been followed by the likes of Khwahish, Julie, Hawas, Murder, Tauba Tauba. But there's no storyline. No X factor. Nothing in the league of Last Tango In Paris, Basic Instinct...Kyun?
Filmmakers point fingers at everything from the Censor Board to restrictions in the portrayal of women to the hypocrisy of viewers.
* Sex? Censored! "We have the ideas, the audience is ready, but our censorship laws are ridiculous. How can five people decide parameters for the rest of the country? For the censor certificate of Oops! I had to argue with a gentleman who wasn't willing to accept the woman on top," says director Deepak Tijori. There is a growing demand to make the Censor Board a rating agency that grades films. "Our censor laws are similar to those in Communist regimes like China and Cuba. No one raises a finger against literature or the Net, but since cinema is a commercial medium, there are several watchdogs. If there were kissing scenes in Hindi cinema in the 1920s and 1930s, why be so prudish now?" questions Govind Menon, Khwahish director.
* Not till women are cardboard cutouts: "With the emancipation of women being a reality that isn't limited to select cities, making a sex movie is possible. But this will require roles of substance for women and stories accommodating their perspective... after all, a sex movie will deal with human relations and we can't have cardboard cutouts," says director Ashu Trikha.Hollywood sex films
