Bollywood's take on the sexual absurdity in India
13 July 2006 | by (India) – See all my reviews

One could reject this movie outright as rubbish or just sit back and enjoy one of the few Indian movies to have ever volunteered to be subtle yet absurd enough to entertain. It's all about the predicament of Debu Chatterjee, a bengali "bhadrolok" (gentleman), who has lived by the rules of decency. Having kept all women at a respectable distance all along, he finds himself in his thirties and still a virgin. Not able to tolerate such a barren existence anymore he decides to take help, with hilarious consequences.

All his exertions don't help him loose his virginity. Instead, he unwittingly becomes a porn star, becomes a repeated sex offender in police records and finds something of a strict ,moral and fatherly police officer admonishing him for being a stain on society and threatening to tell "all" to his parents.

Despite the comical absurdity maintained throughout the movie, it does make a point about how taboo an issue sex is. Marriage for the modern youth is much later than what it used to be a hundred years ago. Yet the social taboos related to premarital sex remain. A 'decent' man under such circumstances can do little but slowly sink onto sexual frustration or indulge in a what he considers immoral.
