“Terrifying kisses” in a Bollywood film

Haven’t done any short, random sort of posts for ages, should get back to that :]

Anyway, Bollywood is still changing very dynamically. The borders of what is accepted in terms of violence, sex and language are constantly being pushed and there’s more experimentation with genres that have been absent in Bollywood before now. One of the genres that has suddenly appeared (and unlike fantasy and science-fiction it’s actually done relatively well in the box office) is horror and there’s an upcoming film entitled Fired, which seems to be pushing the envelope in many ways *grin*
The poster which you can see in this article, is in itself quite a bit more daring than the Bollywood posters I’m used to. The article goes on to say that they’ve had to cut the nudity (it cracks me up that it was there *grin*), but might keep it in for international audiences. The film (and its promos) is still having problems with the Indian censor board, however. Also the director claims that:

The kisses in ‘Fired’ for that matter will terrify audiences

So what does that mean? Is the girl going to be kissing the guy passionately and cutting his head off as she does so? lol I’d probably run the other way if I heard a Hollywood horror film had “terrifying kisses”, but in a Bollywood one that might be… er… very interesting ;) I love Bollywood kisses - they really make a meal of them, which is how I think kisses should be. If you’re going to do them then they should be intense scenes ;-P
Off topic, but I forgot to moan about the kissing in my New Moon review. I thought it sucked that they inserted the kissing all over the place - it works much better if you make people wait for it and tease them etc. But maybe I’m just spoilt by Bollywood in this respect :]
