Befikre’s first song Labon ka Karobaar looks like a mini serial of kissing, capable of giving nightmares to Indian censor board chief Pahlaj Nihalani.
The ageless, genderless, size-less, race-less kissing spree begins with Ranveer Singh and Vaani Kapoor and we have not seen anything like it in Bollywood and I am sure Aditya Chopra will consider this as a message of peace.
Shot in Paris, and backed by catchy music with a hint of Spanish/Latin American touch and a voice as sleepy as Paris after dark, but this is sure to raise conservative eye brows in India, no matter what people think India as the birthplace of Kama Sutra.
Already there are vitriolic comments as well as favourable ones on social media. One says this should be banned while another one questions whether Chopra is going to make a porn film. Some one else says Indian cinema is taking new path. Many seem to have an issue with gay kissing. But the only two Indians kissing here are Ranveer and Vaani. Youtube has notched up half a million hits in 14 hours.
Most of the liplocking in Labon Ka Karobaar is done under the shadow of iconic landmarks in the City of Love and in isolated narrow streets which were awash with blood a few months ago. Not sure whether the shots are candid or done by paid actors.
“Befikre shooting was mind-blowing. Aditya sir is just amazing,” Ranveer Singh had said in a previous interview.
The film has already created quite a stir among the audience as Ranveer and actress Vaani Kapoor are seen lip-locking passionately in every poster released so far.
When the actor was asked about the excessive lip-locking scenes in Befikre, Ranveer quipped: “Yes, there are a lot of kissing scenes. What should I say! They made me kiss so many times!”
The film will see Chopra in the director’s chair after eight years. – CINEWS
