Sleazy And Classy

Last weekend I happened to watch Badmash Company and Thoda Pyar Thoda Magic. Forget about the quality of the movies or the content. It raised another question in my mind. The banner, Yash Raj Films, which is considered the biggest and best in Bollywood - does it offer any all-family movies now... The reason is simple - the amount of skin show.

When the Bhatt camp release any movie, the media and revieweres will tear them part for the nudity, lip-locks, dipping neckline, 'unethical treatment' of ladies etc,etc. But they all will keep quite about the YRF movies. Why ? I also read actresses claiming they will do a bikini ya lip-lock scene only if it is for a YRF movie, because they do it artistically ! Gimme a break. None of the above mentioned movies did it the art way. It was like a cheap porn trick. The swimming pool number in a so called kids movie had nothing artistic in it. In the gangster movie the girl who tried to seduce the hero at the beach volelyball scene also had nothing artistic. Not even good erotica they were.

Look at their last few releases. If Aiswarya, Rani, Preity, Priyanka Chopra, Kareena, Anushka Sharma shows it for YRF, will it make it artistic. And if 'poor' Mallika Sherawat, Kangana Ranaut or the likes do it for Vishesh Movies ( Bhatt camp ) the same will be porn ??? Think again.

I guess there are only a few instances where it was shoot artistically. Check the song Mayya Mayya from Guru. Mani Ratnam has took it artistic. But for the others, it is more for the sensual thing than the artistic feel.
