As soon as the posters and trailer of Udta Punjab was out, it was pretty obvious that the movie would have a lot of swear words as it involves drug abuse and other provocative stuffs. The trailer showcased the dark side of things which no other Bollywood film could dare to show.
The Censor Board, has ended up grounding Udta Punjab on the
basis of excessive swear words and it's quite amusing that the
board have not understood the concept of the movie in the first
place. A movie like Udta Punjab, needs to have provocative things
as the main intention is to shock people by how drugs can ruin
However, as soon as the news started doing the rounds that the
Censor Board has grounded Udta Punjab for excessive swear words,
Twitteratis didn't take it lightly and vented their anger on the
board with the hashtag in bold, #SHAME ON CENSOR BOARD.
Twitteratis, are questioning the Censor Board's decision for
letting a few films pass through censor, when a few cuts were
really required in the scenes, and grounding a film which has cuss
words which rightfully revolves around its storyline. People are
finding it quite amusing that the board is completely missing the
poing on the films story.
The hashtag #SHAME ON CENSOR BOARD is going viral and a lot of
people on Twitter are joinging the bandwagon as you're reading
this. People vented their anger against the Censor Board by
"You can release over rated movies but You can't release a movie
which has a good lesson in it. SHAME ON CENSOR BOARD". Another girl
tweeted her disappointment as,
"Movies which have a strong message for the youth are a
problem,but movies about cheap comedy aren't a problem at all SHAME
ON CENSOR BOARD."
