Fifty shades is an American erotic film series. The stars, Dakota Johnson and Jamie Dornan, are playing the lead roles of Anastasia Steele and Christian Grey.
The film starts with Anastasia “Ana” Steele, a literature student, who goes to interview the wealthy Christian Grey. She is the perfect innocent and naive girl, who finds Christian Grey very intimidating. Christian Grey likes the innocence in her and wants to meet her more. They start going out. Christian gifts her a phone and a laptop so that he can constantly be in contact with her. When Ana is about to get happy about everything going on amongst her and Christian, he comes up with paper work for relationship. Ana is shocked about the same. She is unable to understand the need of a contract for a relationship. That is when Christian comes up with his obsession on being a dominant.
Ana finds it funny. But, Christian is serious about his contract. It is a detailed contract. It specifies every detail about the type of relationship they will have, and what are the limits to which the relationship could go. The contract is on BDSM(submission, dominance, and so on). Grey is open to negotiate on the terms. He also shows her his play room. It is his own private place. The room remains locked all the time. It is the place where he keeps all the tools(Anal hook, Bondage cuffs, and so on).
The story continues and Christian comes to know that Ana had never had a sexual relationship. Christian and Ana make love. The contract has yet not been signed and Christian wants Ana to make the decision as he is unable to let her go. Ana finally agrees to take a look at the contract. She wants to negotiate the terms and conditions. Ana was not happy at first but she treats the relationship as a business. They hold the meeting in his office. They exchange their notes. As per the contract, Ana was supposed to be with Christian from Friday to Sunday. Christian was happy that Ana had taken this seriously and being a dominant, he gave her a day of the week where they can go on date like a normal couple. He wanted to make love with her, but Ana just kept him that way.
Ana starts coming to his home. They make love. But, he never lets her touch him. He has a past, which has made him a demon that he is now. Ana wishes to know. They sleep in separate rooms. There are moments when Ana is not happy with the kind of relationship. She is not feeling loved. She gets a call from her mother and she breaks down. Christian comes to know about her plans of visiting her mother in a family dinner and gets angry. Ana calms him down.
When she boards the plane, she is informed that her seat has been upgraded to business class. Christian had done the same. She reaches there and meets her mother. She was out with her mother and was going to have her drink, when he gets a message from Christian not to. She comes to know that he is nearby. He takes her on an outing where they fly a glider. Christian constantly says that he is not a romantic, but these things make things romantic for Ana.
Till now Ana has not signed the contract. Christian wants her to sign it as they have discussed every detail of the contract. But Ana wants more. She wants Christian to open up. She wants to know more about Christian. Christian admits that he has never felt the way he feels for her, but he can not fall in love. It is the way he is. He likes to punish and reward his subs. Ana wants to know how bad he can get. She asks him to show her. He takes her to his play room. Asks her to bend and tells her that he whip her on her butt for 6 times and she has to count. She prepares herself for the same and he starts whipping. He whips so hard that tears start flowing from her eyes. She is hurt and she never wants Christian to touch her again. She is hurt that it pleases Christian to hurt her like that. She leaves.
My opinion about this movie is that you can watch it once but not more than that. It is a normal love story with lot of erotica. In some countries these scenes have been censored. So in those countries there is no point watching the movie. I was discussing the story with my friend, and our reaction was that it is a complete impossible kind of fiction. But the movie is nice to watch. It has some good soft porn. Ana has a nice body and Christian is awesome too. Girls can ask their boy friends to see the movie for tips. BUT, how can such a wealthy guy be into BDSM and stay wealthy? Is it possible? Also, if we come across such a guy, who owns a play room for BDSM, the first thing we would do is complaint to the police. I would be horrified if my boy friend comes out to be a freak. I would start to think of him as a serial killer. This movie is a complete fantasy. Many bloggers have said that it is like the story of Twilight except for that they are not vampires. I am waiting to watch the uncut version of the second part, fifty shades darker.
