Bollywood is the biggest film industry on the planet as far as number of motion pictures created each year. Be that as it may, aside from all the hits, flops and the normal, there exists another brand of Indian film which is intentionally kept out of our range. Movies that enjoy solid (read striking) dialect, suggestive (read disgusting) scenes, sex taboos, Kashmir issues, religion and essentially films which are route relatively revolutionary.
Here’s a rundown of motion pictures which the Censor Board banned, not that the viewers missed any of it!
- Bandit Queen (1994)
Marauder Queen was straight up ‘hostile’, ‘revolting’, “obscene” and nearly chuckled at the true to life conservatism of the Indian blue pencil board. The subject was such. Taking into account the life of Phoolan Devi, this Shekhar Kapur motion picture was banned due its express sexual substance, nakedness and damaging dialect, which the Censor Board proved unable (clearly) process.
- Fire (1996)
Deepa Mehta’s work is perceived for its worldwide substance and request. Be that as it may, nearer home, that means contention. Among others, one such motion picture was “Flame” which earned a considerable measure of basic praise worldwide however neglected to inspire Hindu gatherings (like Shiv Sena) in India because of its subject, which managed lesbian relationship between two sisters-in-laws in a Hindu family. The debate finished with the main performers, Shabana Azmi and Nandita Das alongside their executive Deepa Mehta getting demise dangers and Censor Board at last banning the motion picture in the nation.
- Kama Sutra – A Tale Of Love (1996)
In a fairly misleading move, Kama Sutra – A Tale Of Love excessively confronted the fierceness of Censor Board which termed it ‘unequivocal’, “dishonest” and “indecent” for the groups of onlookers of the country which thought of the idea of Kama Sutra! This Mira Nair motion picture, which portrayed the lives of four darlings in the sixteenth century in India, was a hit with the commentators yet a noteworthy lemon with the Censor Board and eventually got banned. We saw it coming.
- Urf Professor (2000)
Another motion picture to keep running into issue with the Censor Board was Pankaj Advani’s Urf Professor featuring Manoj Pahwa, Antara Mali and Sharman Joshi. The motion picture follows the voyage of the hero after a hit-man’s auto and a triumphant lottery ticket disappears and the mayhem that takes after. In any case, what rankled the Censor Board were the ‘disgusting scenes’ and ‘striking dialect’ utilized as a part of this dark parody, which at last prompted a prohibition on the motion picture.
- The Pink Mirror (2003)
While exploratory films turned into the standard, sexual orientation issues was still an unstable theme to investigate. The Pink Mirror by Sridhar Rangayan is one such motion picture which conveyed the idea of trans-sexuality to the front line. The story managed the mission of two transsexuals and a gay young person to lure a straight man. No prizes for speculating that the Censor board got annoyed by the “profanity” in the motion picture and banned it even after the film collected rave surveys at film celebrations around the globe.
