Here you have the chance to watch on YouTube the trailer of next Sherlyn Chopra’s movie Kamasutra 3D. It’s the first chapter of a trilogy that should be about the story of a child bride who, in the long journey that will take her to meet her husband, will meet a mysterious stranger who will introduce her to the mysteries of sexuality.
Yes, I know. It sounds something like Fitfy Shades of Curry. Maybe. We can’t understand much more from the trailer. I guess it’s a director’s choice.
I think it’s worthwhile to spend a little time talking about the subject. If nothing else for the trouble Rupesh Paul made in order to get this production approved by the Indian Central Board of Film Certification. If nothing else because Rupesh Paul did not choose the protagonist of his movie at random. If nothing else because the film will be presented at the Cannes Film Festival, not after midnight on the Pay tv. And our Rupesh claimed he is sure of winning a prize.
Sherlyn Chopra is probably the most beautiful actress in Bollywood, she’s doubtlessly the most famous one though. No doubt she’s the one who created more scandal. They said she called Hugh Garner to tell him she would become the first Indian girl to pose totally nude on the cover of Playboy.
Essential to understand the scope of these gestures is to contextualize. Sherlyn’s mother is Muslim, Sherlyn lives in a country where rape is a sort of endemic disease and where to solve it they force women to dress more.
Sherlyn, instead, takes her clothes off.
And after being stripped for Americans, becoming the target of public opinion of his country, she decided to undress for her people. She did not escape, she returned.
She didn’t play in Eyes wide shut. This movie is called Kamasutra 3D, it’s a Indian story. It is as if she put sex in front of the eyes of her country and explained that one of the highest cultural pages of their history had been written through it. A book envied by the whole world.
She, with her naked body, is saying that sex could be Art. It could be beautiful, without violence. She’s fighting a cultural revolution, she is changing a country. She is saving some women.
Because it’s useless to make laws against rape if people are not ready to understand them. You can not always impose things from above and expect to be obeyed, sometimes you also have to explain what you mean by your acts. And I’m not the one who discovered that a woman’s ways are better than those of a politician.
Indian people wrote it, about three thousand years ago.
