Just when we thought that the Udta Punjab versus CBFC row was the final leg of the filmmakers’ fight for their freedom of speech and expression, CBFC strikes again as it stalls Nawazuddin Siddiqui and Shweta Tripathi starrer Haraamkhor. In the wake of the Bombay High Court’s decision that the CBFC Board should only certify and not censor, filmmakers liked to believe that they will no more have to face issues with the board. Their triumph obviously was short lived. And while we think CBFC is just being unreasonable, here is a list of six recent films that shows CBFC acts more like a moral police than film certification board:
The story revolves around the issues of drug abuse in Punjab, and highlights the state of the youth who have been most affected by it. The film will surely go down history of Indian Hindi cinema, not because of the concept but because of their fight with the CBFC. Days over days, people only heard or read about the film and the 89 cuts the CBFC asked the filmmakers to make. The fight that only recently ended when the Bombay High Court allowed the film to release with only one cut, filmmakers called the decision a revolutionary move in favour of their freedom of expression.
A female buddy film, Angry Indian Goddesses is about the lives of six women who come together to celebrate lives. While the film dealt with the good and bad in their lives, they rightly portrayed the social evils that women face. The film saw itself in a wrath with the Censor Board, as the board suggested 16 cuts in the film and also objected the use of the image of Goddess Kali. The cuts didn’t make much of a difference, but the image was blurred in the film. The cast believed that the film was more for women empowerment and not to disrespect anybody.
Pahlaj Nihlani, the Chief of CBFC was trolled for being the most sanskari person alive. He was trolled after cutting the kissing scenes in the film. Daniel Crag’s kissing scene was shortened in the film, and the film had four cuts that left the Indian viewers unhappy. Soon after that the Censor Board Chief was trolled on Twitter with #SanskariJamesBond. The film though was given the ‘U/A’ certificate by the board, but after it had cut four scenes and shortened kissing scenes.
