    It's a known secret that the Bhatt camp doesn't care much about reviews, because it believes that their niche audience base doesn't care about it either. Will it remain the same after Emraan Hashmi's Mr X? Well, it's really very hard to say.

    Court review: Tamhane’s film deals with intolerance and censorship

    A day before Chaitanya Tamhane’s award-winning multilingual film (Marathi, primarily, with Hindi, English and Gujarati), Court, is to release in theatres, there’s news that the censor board asked for two lines to be deleted. One of them concerns a propaganda Marathi play, dealing with the anti-north Indian sentiment; the CBFC has an issue with the term ‘aai-mai’ (mother-sister). Then, on the day of release, a former sheriff of Mumbai has his office vandalised, for putting up a banner criticising the diktat of compulsory regional film screening in the state.

    Talk of a film on the disabled or 'differently-abled', and we all know that it is one subject our industry is never comfortable with. Mostly, our films end up showcasing only their physical constraints and their struggle with a prejudiced world that is out there to humiliate them. Kalki Koechlin's Margarita With A Straw has none of these.
