Censor - 2001


Censor is a satire on the Indian film censorship system, apparently inspired by Dev Anand's efforts to get his last film 'Main Solah Baras Ki' past the censors. Anand himself sums up the film thus - "Censor, is about a film that gets held up with the censors due to their rigidity.

The message in the film is that one has to move with the times and quit the orthodox way of thinking. With the invasion of satellite television, the whole generation is exposed to a different, more liberal culture.

Things that were taboo yesterday are being openly discussed today. The Censor Board too should change the way they look at films." Despite, or maybe because of it's subject matter, Censor was required to be cut before it made it to Indian screens - UK viewers can expect to see the film uncut.
