Fifty shades is an erotica, based on the 2011 novel by the same name. In fact it is only the first installment of what we could call the Grey Trilogy.
The movie tells us the tale of a successful entrepreneur Christian Grey and a college going teenager Anastasia Steele. Ms. Steele meets Mr. Grey for an interview on behalf of her sick friend Katherine, and let us say her changes drastically. Is the change for good or bad? The answer is best watched on screen.
Fifty shades of Grey had its fair share of controversy in India thanks to its explicit visuals which the extremists found hard to accept. What intrigues me is that these people have no issues with the amount of graphical description on sexual intercourse in novels but hell breaks loose if the same is found in visual media. Irony, huh?
