Bollywood always bold and sensuous. Romance has been the most popular part in a Bollywood movie but with time handling of romance has changed.It has turned from bold to coy and back to racy and bold.
According to the movie makers "movies are the reflection of society". As society is becoming more fast and bold movies are also, as it is for the people.
We always think kissing on screen and bold scenes are a part of 2000's movie, but to aware you it was there in 1929 also.
See, how sensuality has changed in Bollywood.
In the silent film, 'A Throw of Dice' actor Seeta Devi kissed actor Charu Roy.
In the movie,"Karma" actor Devika Rani lip locked for 4 continuous mins.
Zubeida stole the thunder on-screen with her scanty attire and kissing scenes in the film "Zarina".
The Cinematograph Act in 1952, banned kissing on screen.
The romance was staring into each other's eyes and holding hands. Kissing was shown with two flowers coming together.
This was the time of sexy ladies Zeenat Aman, Parveen babby, Sharmila Tagore etc. They changed the look of women in the industry.
It was the time of actresses like Helen, Rekha, Sri Devi, Mandakini and of kissing and bold scenes.
Who can forget rekha in this movie.
Film like Kamasutra, Fire, Water set a new edge to sexuality.
Love between same sex was too excepted.
We feel now comfortable with everything, from premarital sex, kisses, sex scenes to bold item numbers(that at times carry suggestive lyrics) without a cut.
Bollywood films became sensuous and on certain occasions vulgar.
