India putting further grip on film censorship

The Link Paper – 26 October 2013:
India Putting Further Grip On Film Censorship
Not just ascene or song but lyrics, trailers, posters and pretty much any audio-visual content that is associated with a film is likely to come under the scrutiny of the Censor Board, according to the commendations of the Justice Mudgal committee report.

“The report was tasked with suggesting changes in the Cinematography Act 1952. The recommendations – under examination by the Information and Broadcasting Ministry – have argued that definition of film should not be limited to visual content and dialogues but also songs and lyrics of the number and should bewith in the ambit of the Central Board for Film Certification (CBFC) for scrutiny.”

“The level of intolerance today is much higher (…). Today, censorship is happening by private groups – everyone wants to see how one has presented a character or story in the name of religion, history, personality, etc.”
