This movie is downright booooooooooring. Its basically an anthology movie of 4 stories which revolve around sex and lust, as the name suggests. If you are looking for "hot scenes", then you are watching the wrong movie. Movie 1: by Anurag Kashyap This story is about a sexual relationship between a college teacher and her student. The teacher soon gets obsessed about that student. This, like all other Anurag Kashyap movies, is a little bit dark. This movie is 35 minutes long, which is a bit too long for this. Overall, this one gets a 2.5/5. Movie 2: by Zoya Akhtar This story is about a sexual relationship between a man and his housemaid, who comes everyday. This one is 25 minutes long, but these 25 minutes feel like eternity. It is so looooooooooooooooooooooong and slooooooow. This story doesn't make any sense and it is disappointing that a fine director like Zoya Akhtar worked on such a movie. This story gets a 0.5/5. Movie 3: by Dibaker Bannerjee This movie is about an extramarital affair of a woman with her husband's best friend. Nothing else to say about this story. This story gets a 1/5. Movie 4: by Karan Johar This story is about a married woman who is not happy with her marriage as her mother-in-law only wants her to have children. This the only good story in this whole movie. This is the only story in which I didn't yawn. This one is a little funny too. I give this this story a 4/5. This movie is boring and pointless. Throughout the movie I yawned at an average of 7 yawns per story (except story 4). The only people who will love this whole anthology are pretentious critics, feminazis and fake feminists.
