Fifty Shades Darker trailer has released and it is sexier, darker and more dangerous than Fifty Shades of Grey. The romance between Ana (Dakota Johnson) and Christian (Jamie Dornan) which began in Fifty Shades of Grey is getting crowded, for there are three people in it.
Apparently, not just Ana but multiple women have tried to save Christian from himself and they are making the marriage crowded. However, before the intrigue, there is a masquerade ball, which will not end well for this is the mommy porn Fifty Shades we are talking about.
It is a sequel to the film nobody watched in India for India’s Central Board of Film Certification, fondly called censor board for we all believe that you should be named on the basis of your karma, deemed it too racy for us. Hell, the Pahlaj Nihalani-led board is scared that a long kiss between Daniel Craig and Monica Bellucci in Spectre can destroy our sanskriti and we are talking about a film on BDSM here.
So, Fifty Shades of Grey trailer came to India with all the sex safely snipped out of it. And what about the film itself? I am sure censor board decided they wanted the sex scenes out and got to work with their scissors. Given the amount of sex the film had, there is a room in a basement somewhere where a conscientious censor board member is still busy making the film sanskaari. The film never came, a statement on the film never came either. In the meanwhile, Fifty Shades Darker’s trailer has landed.
We saw the trailer and there is no sex, again! For a film based on a perverted man who forces an innocent to bend to his wishes out of love, of course, Fifty Shades series is strangely devoid of sex when viewed in India. Oh wait, there is a shot of a bare back, bare legs and a lot of kissing. May be the censor board was fooled by all the masked men and women at the beginning of the trailer and let the trailer go.
Anyway, if you are a fan of the series, enjoy the trailer for there is no way you are going to get the Fifty Shades Darker releasing in India. And in case you are not a fan, thank the censor board because they just saved you from a Razzie-winning performance. You will have to think of another way to celebrate Valentine’s Day next year, though.
