CENTRAL BOARD OF FILM CERTIFICATION BANNED RAVEENA TANDON STARRER ‘MAATR’ :

Raveena Tandon-starrer Maatr has run into trouble with the Central Board of Film Certification over the use of expletives in the film.  The board members walked out of a screening of the film earlier this week and after watching the film on Saturday, they have rejected the film – practically banning it for the time.  A report in Quint quoted a source as saying, Maatr has graphic and gruesome violence against women. The film is carpeted with maa-bahen expletives. We cant even recommend that the abuses be beeped as they run through the course of the film in an ongoing rush of profanity.  Rape sequences are always tricky. We never know when they stop becoming shocking and get into the voyeuristic/titillating zone. In Maatr, the womens violation is subject to allegations of excessive elaboration. Though the film is well-intended and hard-hitting, we cannot take the risk of incurring the wrath of organizations devoted to prevention of violation against women, the source further said.  Raveena Tandon plays the titular role in Maatr. Written by Michael Pellico and directed by Ashtar Sayed, Maatr is scheduled to hit theatres on April 21. The Rediff.com : 16th. Apr,17
