When everyone is very excited about the release of the film Udta Punjab, there is a controversy on the movie now. Human Rights Awareness Association, a Punjab-based NGO, on Wednesday sought to put on hold the screening of the film. The primary reason behind their complaint is that they argue Udta Punjab has projected the agrarian State in a bad light. Although the high court has given a clean chit for the film in many ways and has said that the censor board should not curb the creativity of the filmmakers. In this scenario the latest complaint on the film is disappointing.
The High Court had directed the film producer to make one cut and insert three disclaimers. The makers are very much happy about the decision of the high court, but this sudden controversy is something which is like an unnecessary publicity stunt.
