7 Bollywood Movies that Went Below the Belt

Bollywood has evolved with time and has been exploring genres of cinema other than romance and masala. While there have been many female oriented movies, art cinema and the typical masala entertainers, the last few years have seen a significant increase in movies that revolve around issues..ahem..below the belt. Be it constipation or sperm donation, the lower half of the body is where these issues come from, even IRL. Let’s have a look at the most famous ones:

Toilet – Ek Prem Katha
With a name similar to Gadar – Ek Prem Katha, Toilet – Ek Prem Katha is also about a separated pair, but not because of religion or partition, because of a toilet…or the lack of it. A very important message spread across through a movie, Toilet makes it to the top of this list.

Guddu Ki Gun
An out-of-this-world idea, Guddu Ki Gun is about a womanizer. He is cursed with a gold penis by the father of one of the girls he has an affair with. The curse will break only if he marries his soulmate and stays loyal to her. The twist being his soulmate is an average looking girl, unlike the ones he has affairs with.

These movies were fun, especially because of their storyline. Bollywood must keep them coming (pun intended, obviously).
