Clean Films That Stirred Controversy

 
Clean Films That Stirred Controversy

Many a times, Bollywood had to face the axe for making movies they did not expect would stir a controversy. Often, films were made on controversial themes and were banned or faced problems with the censor board. A few movies that faced controversies were also the blockbusters in the year they were released. One of the reasons films get banned in India are for the bold content, politically sensitive issues and themes dealing with religious sentiments. Here are some movies that not necessarily have the 'bold' content, still they were held in disputes for various reasons.


The Dirty Picture


This movie is based on the story of Silk Smitha, a 'C' rated actress of South Indian film industry. Contrary to the expectation that it would deal with sleazy tidbits of her story, it dealt with details of her story with sensitivity. The movie starts with her life prior to entering movies. She was living in utter penury and was discovered by some director looking for a new face. After little success with b-grade films, it shows her emotions and the sabotage, torture she goes through at every stage in her life. Her never-ending quest for true love finally leads her to take the extreme step and end her life. Ekta Kapoor's brilliance of choosing subjects is displayed through this movie. She's much better with movies than her iconic soap operas.


Oh My God


Not everybody knows this movie is a remake of an Australian film where a man sues God for natural calamity that has created havoc in his life. The name of the Australian film is, 'The Man Who Sued God.' Umesh Shukla Starring Paresh Rawal and Akshay Kumar directed the bollywood version of this movie. For religious reasons this movie was in disputes as a few groups though it hurt the old beliefs of Hindus. This was one of the biggest hits of 2012 and received much critical acclamation for adapting it to suit the Indian audience. This movie is a satirical make on the superstitions and focuses on the broad meaning of spirituality. A movie well received by audience despite its controversy.


Madras Cafe


This movie generated so much uproar that it has not been released worldwide in various Tamil speaking locations across India and the world. Even countries like UK did not play this film as it was related to the LTTE group and Rajiv Gandhi's assassination. Even after more than two decades, this topic is still a sensitive issue. It looks like no matter how old any sensitive political issue is, it still can generate outburst amongst any group. In other countries where it was released like U.S and Australia, this movie fared well at the box office. The movie received wide critical acclaim and director Shoojit Sircar was well appreciated.


There is a huge list of movies that stirred controversy for dealing with sensitive political and religious issues. A few films like Talaash were in controversy because of the dispute between Reema Kagti and Aamir Khan. Still filmmakers take the bold stance and fight against the odds to show us the reality and hard-boiled truth through their movies. Kudos to these audacious filmmakers!
