‘S Durga’ Film Makers Move Kerala HC

‘S Durga’ Film Makers Move Kerala HC

The producer and director of Malayalam feature film ‘S Durga’ have moved the Kerala High Court challenging the suspension of the certification of the movie by the Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC). In their petition, producer Shaji Mathew and director Sanal Kumar Sasidharan said they were “deeply aggrieved with the illegal, arbitrary, high-handed and mala fide manner” in which the CBFC certification of film has been suspended on November 28. The petitioners alleged that the suspension order was passed solely with malicious intention of thwarting the exhibition of the film in the International Film Festival of India (IFFI) held at Goa. The Censor Board on November 28 had ordered a re- examination of the controversial film, derailing its court-ordered screening at the IFFI. The producer and the director have claimed that it was an independent art film, which deals with paradoxical patriarchal tendency to objectify women.
