After the pressure from the media, the Censor Board was forced to change it’s decision on censor certificate to the movie ‘Dhuwani’. The censor board had objected to a dialogue in the movie citing the dialogue to create problem with the neighboring countries. Now, the Board has allowed the movie to be screened in theaters with PG certificate. The certificate allows children to watch the movie with adults.
After this incident, it is proved that the Board doesn’t have a clear guideline on censoring movies and they act on personal preferences and intuition. This is not the first time such incident had happened. The movie banned by the Board, ‘ATM‘ was released on July 26 without change after the court found it suitable for the public. With these problems, the Board doesn’t hold any credibility to censor movies.
‘Dhuwani’ is releasing on Bhadra 28 and is made on the story of human trafficking in Nepal. A NGO working on the human trafficking, Maiti Nepal, has purchase the rights in Nepal to use the movie in creating awareness of human trafficking in all over Nepal. The movie is directed by Pitambar Pandey and is produced by Kabita Shrestha. The movie features Kishor Khatiwada, Prabin Khatiwada, Dhirenraj Thapa, Anuja Gayak etc. in main roles.
