I don’t think anyone has formed a definitive answer to this before? Or, perhaps, even been brave enough to pose the question!!! But I feel like if anyone is qualified to answer such a vital open research topic, it is the DCIB community.
This is of course subjective, what is sexy for one person may not be sexy for another. And on the other hand, the data set is so massively large (including the entire history of film from all languages) that it is a daunting consideration to even begin.
But you have to begin somewhere! And so I shall take a random stab at a beginning giving us a first few scenes to consider, you can jump off from where I started with your own opinions:
JHMS Kiss Scene
Jodha-Akbar “In Lamhon” song
Awara slap scene
Mughal-E-Azam feather scene
“Pavizhampol” from Namukku Parkkan Munthiri Thoppukal
“Roop Tere Mastana” from Aradhana
Dil Se almost-kiss scene
“Kadhal Sadugudu” from Alaipayuthay
Devasena walking on Bahubali
“Aga Bai” from Aiyyaa
As I said, that is just to get us started on this monumental task. Are there any options above that you would immediately reject from the running? What needs to be added to consideration (post link in comment if possible)?
