From Ragini MMS 2 to Zid, we take you on a quickie through some of the sexiest films this year
Remember the times when films like Murder and Jism rocked the big screen, and names like Mallika Sherawat and Bipasha Basu where in tip of everyone’s tongue. Can you recall the infamous quote of Neha Dhupia ‘Only SRK and sex sell in Bollywood’? Not long ago Bollywood was plagued by films which relied heavily on sex and erotic scenes to sell the film. In 2014, we saw a unique mix of sex interspersed with different genres as erotic content turned out to be the gold dust for many films.
Looking back at 2014, here is a list of 6 films which relied on sex to grab some eyeballs:
Ragini MMS 2
If any actress who seemed to have made an impact with her bold avatar after Mallika Sherawat did it in Murder, it has to be ex-adult star Sunny Leone through her horrex film Ragini MMS 2. The sequel to 2011 flick, Ragini MMS, the film heavily relied on Sunny’s oomph factor as she twinkled toed around a ghost house in skimpy clothes and revealing outfits. Ms Leone’s sex appeal worked wonders for the film, as her erotic scenes as well as the Baby Doll song turned out to be a rage among the masses.
Hate Story 2
Little did anyone expect that a film starring two TV stars debuting in Bollywood, would make people sit up and take notice. Hate Story 2, starring Surveen Chawla and Jay Bhanushali, surprised everyone with it’s incredible run at box office, just when critics had written off the film. With plenty of bold scenes and Surveen Chawla’s sexy bare back exposure, Hate Story 2 rode on Surveen’s hotness quotient to make merry at box office. The song Aaj Phir Tum Pe picturised titillatingly on the lead pair was one of the most sought after numbers of 2014.
Mastram, which was about an author who wrote erotica, didn’t even bother to use sex in disguise as the film showcased the sexy encounters of the writer in form of short erotic stories. With innovative posters and exciting trailers, Mastram created a curiousity among audiences drawing them to theatres despite being driven by unknown cast. With the writer’s titillating narration to back the erotic visuals, Mastram played with sexual fantasies of masses, proving that sex still sells in Bollywood.
Zid starring Priyanka Chopra’s sister Mannara along with Karanvir Sharma and Shraddha Das, was one of the widely publicised erotic thrillers of the year. The film which marked debut of Mannara, was famous for it’s bold kissing scenes, skin show and of course the incessant cat fights between two actresses Shraddha and Mannara. The debutant sister of Priyanka Chopra shocked every one by appearing topless in posters and in few scenes of the film, giving the audience enough reason to warrant a visit to the theatres.
The remake of 1981 classic, Shaukeen, this Akshay Kumar starrer was quite popular thanks to it’s bold theme about three oldies in search for some sexual adventure. Though many may argue that, the film also starring Lisa Haydon, Anupam Kher, Annu Kapoor and Piyush Mishra, worked because of small cameo from Khiladi Kumar, one can’t take away the fact that the film’s main premise of three sixty plus men trying to seduce a young chick was exciting. With a bit of skin show and plenty of comedy, The Shaukeens successfully disguised it’s bold theme attracting audience to the cinema halls.
Based on the life of famous painter Raja Ravi Varma, Rang Rasiya starring Randeep Hooda and Nandana Sen, was one of the more aesthetically shot bold films of the year. The film comprises of a collage of nude, erotic scenes, which if marketed properly could have worked largely in favour of film’s box office fate. The famous topless scene of the film where Nandana Sen’s bare body is covered with layers of colour, is one of the most sought after videos of the year.
