In Lust Stories, directors Anurag Kashyap, Zoya Akhtar, Dibakar Banerjee and Karan Johar deconstruct the splendor, complexity and chaos of lust.
Perhaps the most fascinating aspect of this short-film anthology is that four Indian directors - Anurag Kashyap, Zoya Akhtar, Dibakar Banerjee and Karan Johar - have accurately interpreted lust as the forbidden emotion.
Hopefully Lust Stories will educate and force discussion in the still-maturing public sphere of India and its diaspora around the world. But if nothing else, it showcases Indian filmmaking at its best.
Lust Stories flies by in a blur of character and emotion, but the stories are out there, and the conversations will continue.
It's a refreshingly honest view of the ways that women think and behave that are not always shown so freely on screen.
Four women shine in four short flicks. Each one reveals desires and picks. Acting and directing? First rate. You might enjoy it with your mate.
[Lust Stories'] four directors center intelligent and amusing narratives around the thoughts and desires of real women, without specific service to masculine ideals.
Manisha is excellent throughout and comes across as a real woman wanting a meaningful, fulfilling relationship.
There are enough reasons for us to be at odds with each other - certainly these days, when antagonism is almost encouraged - but there's room for everyone, Lust Stories seems to say; for all kinds of people, and above all, all kinds of movies.
