Posters provide the first glimpse into a new film and make first impressions. No wonder then, that they are getting steamier by the day.
The poster of Vikram Bhatt's latest film Hate Story is quite bold, showing off a topless woman with a gun stuffed in the back of her denims, sitting facing a man.
Whether or not the film lives up to its sexy bold first promise, the poster makes you look twice at it.
We decided to look back at recent movies that have had really sexy posters. Take a look.
Bipasha Basu brings in the big guns for her new film that opens in theatres this Friday.
With the actress dressed in her signature bejewelled skimpy top and flaunting her best assets, there's little wonder that she, along with costar R Madhavan, plays professional home-wrecker in the film.
Bold and brazen, this poster pretty much said what the film had to offer.
The Dirty Picture's Silk seductively gazes out of the poster as if to make sure she's doing enough to raise eyebrows as she's flanked by her leading men.
In the Jism 2 poster, we got a glimpse of a voluptuous woman's glorious contours as she lays bare under a white sheet.
Since the film stars adult movie star Sunny Leone, one wonders how bold the film is going to get.
Emraan Hashmi returned for the sequel of the hugely successful Murder. Only this time, he was paired opposite Jacqueline Fernandes.
The poster has the lead pair getting up, close and personal with an eery image for a backdrop.
One of the most underrated films of 2011, Saheb Biwi Aur Gangster had Mahie Gill centrestage in the poster.
Nothing else spells a power-hungry seductress better than Gill dressed in a green sari, striking a sexy pose.
Depicting the Mumbai underbelly that exists in its narrow and stuffy by-lanes, Bhindi Baazaar inc. was announced with a racy poster.
A woman stands in her underpants with a bra dangling from her hand as a man looks on. Seedy and dangerous.
Spanish hottie Barbara Mori set the screen on fire along with her Indian costar Hrithik Roshan in Kites.
While the beautiful couple complemented each other, this overly intimate poster and the stunning locales couldn't save the film.
Mohit Suri's Raaz: The Mystery Continues was a horror film starring Emraan Kashmi, Adhyayan Suman and Kangna Ranaut.
So we have Kangna in a green backless number with the film's title emblazoned on her bare back.
2009's much-awaited movie starring then new love birds Kareena Kapoor and Saif Ali Khan may have met a dismal fate at the box office but this poster was a good invite to the film.
