Called the woman of every Indian man’s dreams, porn icon Sunny Leone’s fame extends quite a bit farther afield for fans of her triple X-rated, U.S.-shot body of work. Now reinvented as a singer-dancer and would-be actor in Bollywood, she comes across in Dilip Mehta’s feature documnetary Mostly Sunny as an outgoing, fun-loving, vapid businesswoman for whom the bottom line outweighs any other consideration. Mehta, an accomplished photojournalist and the director of Cooking With Stella (2009), fleshes out his subject in an intelligent, highly watchable celebrity portrait that skips the titillation while it ably captures the cold heart of the adult entertainment industry. Its uncompromising approach may disappoint the star’s usual fan base, but in compensation it can be watched without embarrassment by any broad-minded and curious adult audience. The film made its Indian bow at the Mumbai Jio MAMI festival after premiering in Toronto and should continue to gain momentum in the fest and art house community.Mostly Sunny 2017 Movie Download.
At 35, Sunny (real name Karenjit Kaur Vohra) still combines the supernatural beauty of an Indian movie star with the clean-faced innocence of a girl from rural Canada. Mehta’s screenplay, written with Canadian filmmaker Deepa Mehta (Water) and producer J. Craig Thompson, views her in her various habitats. We meet her bundled up for the snow and cold on a nostalgic visit to her home town of Sarnia, Ontario, with her husband, co-star and manager Daniel Weber. She is surprisingly open and childish talking to the camera, swinging emotional whenever family is brought up. As a communications guru later suggests, this may be a calculated image-making tactic.
Though her chatter is chipper, tears seem to be close at hand as she remembers the deaths of her mother and father, who never fully accepted her choice to embrace adult entertainment, where she began appearing exclusively in lesbian roles around the age of 19.
