LSD showcases India as Voyeur Capital of the Modern World Alt Entertainment, Balaji Telefilms’ initiative, is all set to release its latest entertainer

LSD- Love, Sex aur Dhokha on the 5th of March, 2010. Following the critical and commercial successes of the young film maker Dibakar Banerjee; LSD is an edgy, fast paced, high energy and a uniquely humorous film targeted at the young and young-at-heart.

It’s a film that proves how India has become the voyeur capital of the modern world; how mobile phones and webcams have changed our lives forever. How exhibitionism is an acceptable part of the Indian youth’s life. Set in new India, LSD captures the lives of six characters through the chaos of the camera that has invaded our lives. The film caters to that voyeuristic desire amongst us which constantly pushes the boundaries of curiosity to “excavate’ information about others– candidly. It also uncovers some uncomfortable truths about the media and entertainment industry.

The story begins in a second rate film institute somewhere deep in the redneck hinterland of North India, a final year student gears up for his diploma film. In pristine tackiness, with an amateur small town cast, Rahul starts etching out the perennial themes of Great Star Studded Backlit Bollywood Love in his magnum opus. And then he falls in love with his heroine, Shruti.

Somewhere in the same city, Adarsh– the all knowing, tech savvy, never short of words, security camera agency exec– installs four security cameras in a small upcoming 24-hour departmental store franchise. Always floating bizarre scam ideas to get rich, Adarsh hits upon the idea of making a porn clip through the security cameras in the shop.

In another corner of the city, Prabhat– a misogynist sting journalist– teeters on the brink of total meltdown. Going through a divorce, about to be fired from his job, he attempts a series of failed suicides. On one of them, he meets Naina who is also trying to commit suicides he believes this to be his one final money spinning sting

LSD takes us into the heart of three stories unfolding across and weaving through each other– contemporary, unusual, real tales of love.

Shot with the most unique camera equipment and innovative lighting techniques and aspiring to exploit the digital cinema wave to the fullest; LSD is India’s première digital film. Directed by Dibakar Banerjee and produced by Alt Entertainment; the film boasts of a fresh star cast to showcase its unique visual flavor. The film is in the tone and genre of some extremely successful films such as Blair Witch Project and the recent phenomenon- Paranormal Activity; what makes LSD even more unique is the fact that for the first time such visual treatment has been given to a film in India.

Dibakar’s Filmfare award winning crew is back on LSD- writer Manu Rishi, music composer Sneha Khanwalkar who gave music to much loved and successful films such as Khosla Ka Ghosla and Oye Lucky, Lucky Oye; costume designers Rushi and Manoshi have all added to the “edginess’ factor in the film. Award winning international cinematographer Nikos would provide the visual appeal to the film.

Alt Entertainment plans to release the film in over 400 screens– multiplexes and single screens nationally and in select screens in the US, UK, UAE and other international markets.
