Recently, a Marathi picture has been in the news

ZENDA (i hope I have spelt it right)
It seems it was cleared by the censor board.

Narain Ran’s son had some objections to some of the content.
After Rane watched the picture, he gave the clearance after certain amendments, and media reported;

Are the constitutional institutions dead?

What authority has Rane got to stop the release?

Why did he not go to the Court for relief?

Why do we need one Rane’s clearance?

Why is the CM quiet?

Why is the court not taking suo-moto notice?

Why hasn’t the censor board objected to interference?

Why are SS and MNS quiet?

Is there any rule of law in the country?

I guess the censor board action is fairly random. See This

From what i understand about this episode, Chowlaji, the film makers wanted the political leaders to see the movie before they release it to avoid inconvenience to the public in the form of violence/protests. Not only Narayan Rane, even Raj Thakare is believed to have seen and cleared it. So when there was trouble at a Thane movie theatre, MNS explained that some supporters did not like the manner in which Raj T was portrayed. Apparently their intentions seem to be good but one cannot rule out the film-makers wanting publicity either! This is what i hear from the Marathi folks who seem to know....

Maharashtra is heading for a name-change, it seems. Since things are getting darker, how about "Maharatri"?

Ugich Konitari, then is the CB an institution to accommodate the favourite? Is it?

Gopinath,what you are saying ,makes it worse.I remmember,in olden days in Bombay ,people used to go to the BHAI LOG to get speedy justice.
Are we now at a stage when we have to to go a minister to get his ok to release a film? Then what is the censor board for ? Where is the ruile of law?

With more and more films being made where the language contains words you dont even spell here out of sense of decency, more and more films showing lesser and lesser and sometimes no clothes on peoples backs, all for the sake of "authenticity", the censor Board seems to be taking random decisions a la Rakhi, while appearing seemingly blind otherwise. It alone knows whether it is playing favourites or these are favours given for a consideration.

BKC Forget filmmakers, even MNCs like Enron had to go to Balasaheb for getting his project going! It is nothing new that the goons can cause damages in the garb of protests and their leaders "offer protection" from their own followers! So it doesnt make sense blaming KJo or Avdhoot for going to take their blessings!
