Movie Review: Miss Lovely (2014)
Miss Lovely’, unfolds with this premise, set in the Mumbai of 1980’s where sleazy, sex-horror films are mass-churned by the thriving C-grade movie industry, with depraved delight and unchaste ambitions. The strategy is simple. Vicky Duggal (Anil) and his production team (starlets need spot boys too!) shoots x-rated films in dozens, and then pimps the reels. His inglorious clientele (read: sexual predators) demand just one thing – besharam beauties that bare all. And Vicky promises to deliver ‘wholesome’ masterpieces with “Doh ghanto mein doh hazaar thrills!”
His younger bro, Sonu (Nawazuddin), one with a conscience, is unwillingly sucked into Vicky’s filthy world of ‘sex, lies and videotapes’. Sonu meets wannabe actress Pinky (Niharika) and falls in love; vowing to launch her in a romantic film called ‘Miss Lovely’ and make her a big star. Sweet love! But hereon, the story gets darker and murkier. Sonu pines for his sweetheart and Vicky plots for millions. And beneath the dirty sheets they both find a body of lies, deceit and disclosure. And their dreams blur into the ‘blueprint’ of their own shady designs.
