Netflix has released Lust Stories which is an anthology of four short films. All the four stories are focused on women are high on lust – though they are not too sure in the beginning whether it is love or lust. The four stories have women as their central characters who are sexually aware. Each of these women encounters men who love them truly, but the women are not too sure about their love for the men.
What’s WOW? The actors have done a fabulous job in portraying their characters. One person who stands out definitely is Manisha Koirala and Kiara Advani. Watching them onscreen is a delight. Ditto goes for Bhumi Pednekar, as the maid who rarely speaks, she certainly holds your attention and that is commendable.
What’s Blah? Much like the ALTBalaji meme, Lust Stories in a lot of way will remind you of the web series Gandi Baat. Both have lusting women, only difference is that ALTBalaji’s was more rustic; while the Netflix’s is more sophisticated one.
Parting Shot: Lust Stories is a good attempt and must watch.
