Raveena Tandon‘s Maatr, which tells the story of a mother seeking to avenge her daughter’s wrongdoers, is now close to release. The film’s trailer has garnered a lot of positive feedback and is one of the reasons we can’t wait to watch the film. But it turns out, that wasn’t exactly the case for the Censor Board. If reports are to be believed, Pankaj Nahlani and his team walked out of the movie, just ten minutes into the screening.
Why? Because they felt they weren’t given the right idea about the film’s content from its makers. A source told DNA,
We were given a copy of the screenplay prior to the screening, so we know what to expect and which areas in the storytelling need our intervention. In this case, we realised in ten minutes that we were being shown a different film from what we had been given at the script level. So the screening had to be stopped.
Okay. Just makes me wonder how the Censor Board has that much time to go over the script of every movie they’re about to watch. They surely have a gazillion films to get through.
Interestingly, the producer, Anjum Rizvi, had something else to say.
The censor screening had to be stopped due to technical reasons. We are showing the film to the Board again.
We hope this gets resolved soon.
