Are you aware of the term ‘false advertising’? It’s a way to trick people into buying a product by misrepresenting said product. A more colloquial term for the same is ‘bullsh*tting’. False advertising has been used for eons to lure dumb people aka the majority of a consumer base into parting with their hard-earned cash. Once duped, a consumer has little to do but walk away frustrated and deal with the ignominy of being gullible.
The latest example of false advertising is the new Sunny Leone movie, Ek Paheli Leela. It’s been sold to tongue-wagging consumers as a historical sex drama, with a thrilling reincarnation twist. What Ek Paheli Leela actually is may cause some shock – it is a soft porn, only without the porn.
Sunny looks hot in Ek Paheli Leela, but the same cannot be said about her acting. Throughout the film, she tries hard to act but fails to do so. The former pornstar is great eye candy but it cannot always be just about the looks, can it? Surprisingly, she has performed decently as a desi Rajasthani damsel than a supermodel from Milan.
As for the story of Ek Paheli Leela, it is nothing extraordinary, as we have seen numerous movies based on the theme of reincarnation. However, the incredibly scenic beauty of Rajasthan will make you fall in love with the palaces and deserts!
Going by the trailer and of course with Sunny Leone in the film, most of us thought that the movie will have explicit sexual content to offer. Well, the movie does have steamy, scintillating scenes, but only those that were shown in the trailer! (Much to the disappointment of Sunny fans.)
Ek Paheli Leela travels back and forth in time, and is shot in some of the most exotic locales ranging from Mumbai to London to Jodhpur. That, and no surprises here, Khan’s smitten with one of the most attractive women currently in Hindi films is more than evident in the fact Sunny’s there in almost every frame of the film.
And before we end, a word of appreciation for two men — Jay Bhanushali and Jas Arora — who’ve practically risked going completely unnoticed in this film. In short, yes, they struggle to be noticed, and it is more than evident. Ek Paheli Leela is like a second chance for Bhanushali whose previous films Hate Story 2 and Desi Kattey bombed at the box office. Jas Arora is also on the screen after a long time.
