Film censorship in India which is being acquired by The Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC), which is a juristic film certification body under the ministry of Information and Broadcasting of the Government of India with the basic duty of control the public showing of films under the provision of the Cinematograph Act 1952.
Censorship as transparent as it should be is never felt individually, it will always have a subject where the forces of religions, community and various groups could be seen.
In today’s world where everyone likes to watch movies and we all read books which is an individual experience whereas a movie can be watched in a group in a theatre with 200-500 people. But all 200-500 people do have 200-500 observations of watching a movie. Then the question arises, as to who considers the observations as obscene, filthy, vulgar or an indecent affair.
There may be no individuals but individuals with groups and communities and religious minorities with an obstruction towards the movie and its certain ideologies or its obscene visuals and interpretations.
By the end of 2014, there was a dispute over Amir khan’s PK, a movie directed by Raj Kumar Hirani and Produced by Vidhu Vinod Chopra. It came into controversy over its religious content. The controversy was whether it should be banned or should it be released to be watched in various cities and states.
Among the various obstructions mostly the ones who were bringing the ban were the group who established that their religious beliefs and sentiments had been mocked or imitated.
In spite all of it, the movie was a huge hit in India. It shows that a common person who wasn’t aware of the controversy went to watch the movie or purchased a CD or downloaded it. These are driven by religious sentiments.
Analysis: If we dive into the history of censorship in India, one can state that a film is banned or censored on the following reasons: Sexuality, Politics, Religion, Communal conflict, incorrect portrayal of someone or something, extreme violence.
