‘Padmavati’ Controversy:The Film v/s Reality


While a huge amount of controversy the movie has already gained before it’s release. Talking,about people and their views about the movie a huge number of people have already protested against the movie and cleared their stand that this movie should not be released.

One of the foremost question arises after having a look at the protest against the movie that “How can anyone say about the content of movie without watching it?.  ” Karni Sena head Lokendra Singh Kalvi has said that “the movie is a full new formatting of history and it has been directed according to the business prospect and the truth and reality of Rani Padmavati has not been shown in this correctly.”

Answering to the question of Karni Sena head, Sanjay Leela  Bhansali said ” If he doesn’t  believe in me then before  releasing the movie they must watch it and give it a NOC or may suggest the scenes which are against their pride”.

There has been also a special screening of the movie done for the news anchors and journalist so that they can watch the movie and have their review on it. Many journalists have already watched the movie and they have also reviewed that there is no such scenes in the movie which are under objection.

According to Rajat Sharma a famous journalist and India TV Chief, says that, “there is not a single scene, dialogue or sequence in the film Padmavati that could hurt Rajasthani or Rajput pride”. He said that after watching the whole movie.

Arnab Goswami  after watching the whole movie quoted that, “Padamavati is greatest ever tribute to the Rajput pride. In context of the raging controversy, every scene of the movie is a fluid cinematic tribute to Rani Padmavati’s greatness”.

Further talking on the matter he said, “Far from the intimate moments, Alauddin and Padmavati don’t even share a single frame in the entire film. So,  those people ravaging the theatres and threatening nose cuts and acid attacks will be laughed at across India”.

People who have already seen the movie are very clear that this movie must be released.But what is going through Karni Sena’s mind knows.Many bollywood actors, directors and producers are against the protest and says that this movie must be released. According to some some bollywood stars this is against their Freedom Of Speech as there are only few directors left who make these sorts of film and having such type of protest is not good for working of bollywood.

Film and TV industry has also started a protest against the protest of Karni Sena an their people.The Indian Films and TV Directors’ Association (IFTDA), along with 20 other bodies of the film and television industry, protested under ‘Main Azaad Hoon’ theme “to protect the right to freedom of expression of creative individuals”.They stopped their work for 15 minutes against the protest of Karni Sena and have made a clear stand that this movie must be released.

There are many polticians and state government have also came up with Karni Sena and banned the movie.The film has already been banned in Madhya Pradesh and Rajasthan. Shivraj Singh Chouhan Chief Minister of MP has clearly said that the movie Padmavati will not be released in his state.In a way it can be said that this movie is taking a political rage and involvement of politics can harm this film a lot.Talking about Lokendra Singh Kalvi he has not been a person who watches many movies and is very far from films.He has seen his last film when he was in class VIII.So before the release of movie he must watch the movie.

The 190 crore budget film has already faced so much protest till now and Sanjay Leela Bhansali will be under a huge pressure on releasing the film.Apart from the protests Sanjay Leela Bhansali has always been a creative director and has directed many hit movies like BajiRao Mastani,Black,Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam and many more.It is very important to see whether this movie releases on 1st December or not.
