Karan Johar's team of KANK are shooting currently in New York at the central park.BOLD THEMES
On the one hand where there has been a flood of cinema showing "liberated" (by Bollywood standards) content, I'm observing that fundamental themes and storylines are getting increasingly bold, and commendably so. Salaam Namaste, releasing today, is about a couple in a live-in relationship. If I'm not mistaken, while the couple lives under the same roof, un-really enough, there isn't much talk of physical intimacy between them. The UDAY CHOPRA-starrer Neil and Nikki goes a step ahead. It shows a couple involved in a serious physical relationship. In the recent Pyaar Mein Twist, DIMPLE KAPADIA and RISHI KAPOOR choose to skirt issues relating to how their kids were born. The point I am making is whether Bollywood will ever come close to making a 'Closer' - a dark, intense and verbally sexual drama about the explosive inter-relationships of four characters. If there is no MALLIKA SHERAWAT to strip or EMRAAN HASHMI to smooch, can Bollywood's filmmakers tackle the sex angle with subtlety, sensuousness and maturity? I am hoping that KARAN JOHAR's Kabhi Alvida Na Kehna will do that.
