Bollywood’s Definition Of All Things “Saxy”

Here’s looking back at Bollywood’s valiant, albeit rather disturbing, attempts at being titillating and well, “saxy”.

There was all manner of inappropriate touching going on, and for some reason, one or both people could be seen slithering on something — some poor unsuspecting wall, the floor, stacks of hay, or even each other. The Censor Board sure didn’t seem to give a shit about impressionable young minds back then.

Oi! Wait a minute! We grew up with scandalous shit like this, and we didn’t turn out half bad. Maybe, just maybe, censorship is counter-productive. I mean, look at the kids these days. What possible reason could they have for being so sexed up and violent, when they haven’t seen half the things we did?!! Down with censorship, I say chaps!

Anyway, without further ado, here’s what Bollywood thinks “steamy” looks like:

1. Julie (1975)

2. Julie (1975)

3. Betaab (1983)

4. Saagar (1985)

5. Mr. India (1987)

6. Dayavan (1988)

7. Phool Aur Kaante (1991)

8. Hum (1991)

9. Khiladi (1992)

10. Baazigar (1993)

11. Mohra (1994)

12. Yeh Dillagi (1994)

13. Sabse Bada Khiladi (1995)

14. Baazi (1995)

15. Khiladiyon Ka Khiladi (1996)


If Hindi movies are to be believed, it’s all about wet sarees, mud wrestling, and weirdest of all — lustful kisses planted on chins. Yikes!
