In the name of tampering in political reasons or history in our country, there has been a long history of opposing films, and in the times of British rule, there are examples of this, but according to the experts, ‘Padmavati’ is probably the first film in this episode that has so far been censored It has not even passed through and it has been done till the release. The controversy about ‘Padmavati’ based on the story of Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s history started from the time of shooting, which has not survived till date. Due to allegations of love between Rani Padmavati and Alauddin Khilji in the misrepresentation of dreams and history of the dream, the film has suffered so much that it is not clear whether it will be available on screen.
Many states have banned films ;
The Gujarat government banned the release of ‘Padmavati’ on November 22 before assembly elections in the state. Earlier, the BJP-ruled Uttar Pradesh, Madhya Pradesh and Rajasthan had already sacked the censor board before it was cut off. The film is facing constant opposition to the rajput community organizations and some politicians regarding allegations of molestation of historical facts.
Hemant Pal, senior journalist from film affairs and Indore’s senior journalist, points out that even before ‘Padmavati’ there have been many such films, which have been the political reason behind not getting on screen. Some movies were released after the biting, but some have not seen the cinema yet. He claims that whatever objections raised about these films, all of them have the role of the censor board. If those films were banned then the Central Board of Film Certification Board (CBFC) did the same. Even after the censor certificate, even though they have been banned in different states, ‘Padmavati’ is probably the first movie, which is facing opposition from the moment of shooting and only before the sensor goes Given the protests on the basis of speculation, the ban on the film has already been ruled by some states.
The film has not yet been censored ;
CBFC chairman Prasoon Joshi told two parliamentary committees last week that the film has not got the approval of the censor board so far, and only after showing the experts will decide on its performance. According to sources, it is understood that on the question of one member of the committee, Joshi said that he has not seen the film so far. Clearly, the film has to wait for the release now. Anyway, the application has been made by the filmmakers for certification in CBFC on 11th November and the Board can take up to 68 days to give certificates to the film under cinematography law.
1921 is going to ban movies, history ;
In the history of banning Hindi films, the silent film ‘Bhakta Vidur‘, which was created in 1921, is considered as the first such film that was banned. Vidur was a character of a Hindu mythological character in the film. The British government had banned it because of the great similarities between Mahatma Gandhi and him. ‘Neel Akasher Neeche‘ (1958) is considered the first movie of Azad India which was banned. Directed by Mrinal Sen, the story of the film Mahadevi Verma was based on the ‘chini bhai‘, which was the story of the last days of the British Raj. The film was released after a two month ban.
Some movies have been banned even after the release
Gulzar’s 1975 film ‘Jhani’ was banned 26 weeks after the release. Sanjeev Kumar and Suchitra Sen played a key role in this. Suchitra played the role of Aarti Devi, a leader who was said to be inspired by the life of the then Prime Minister Indira Gandhi. After this there was an emergency. The general election took place in 1977 and the new government was formed, then it was re-released. Apart from its objectionable themes, excessive openness and excessive violence scenes, too many movies could not reach the screen or the viewer could show them only after a long wait. Shekhar Kapur’s Bandit Queen and Mira Nair’s Kama Sutra-A Tale of Love are some of them.
Similarly, in 2005, “Parzania” came into controversy due to the 2002 Gujarat riots. Films have not been made in Gujarat cinemas. Nandita Das, directed in 2008, “Firaaq“, also guided by such a few reasons, was stuck in a dispute. Aamir Khan starrer “Fanaa” (2006), director Shonali Bose’s “Amu” (2005) and many such films have been facing opposition due to such reasons. Deepa Mehta’s ‘Fire’, ‘Water’ Pankaj Advani’s ‘URF Professor’ is also included in this. Permission for release of ‘Mohalla ESSI’ based on Kashinath Singh’s famous novel ‘Kashi ka assi’ has not been allowed yet. There is a long list of such films.
