Is the movie only about the stuffs mentioned in its title or more than that ? Whatever it is .. who cares as movie comfortably breaks new ground by miles.
Basically the movie is made up of three stories sounding like B-grade movie titles Superhit Pyar(Love), Paap Ki Dukaan(Sex) and Badnaam Shohrat(Dhoka) shot completely using different cameras Handy Cam, CCTV Cam and Spy Cam respectively.
Three stories in a movie ? what’s so ground breaking in that ? There were a few movies like Darna Zaroori Hai and Dus Kahaniya from the factory of RGV which had many stories in a single movie. Well, the major difference is that in LSD, the three stories are interconnected and along with three different perspectives make in movie which has been never seen before in Bollywood.
The success of the movie will be a major relief to Ekta Kapoor’s Balaji Telefilms. The production house whose core business i.e. TV serial production has been in very bad shape in recent times due to changing taste of Indian TV audience.

Dibakar Banerjee's Love, Sex aur Dhoka is the most riveting Hindi film in recent memory. [...] You will be shocked, you will be startled, but walking out of the theatre, you know you have just seen what is possibly the most important Hindi film since Satya and Dil Chahta Hai. Not only does it redefine the concept of "realistic cinema", it opens a world of possibilities in terms of how you can shoot films now.

To my knowledge (and Google's too) this is the first Hindi film with the word 'sex' in its title. And hey, it's not sleazy at all.
