Fair or unfair?

Fair or unfair?

Different strokes for different folks seems to be the Censor Board’s mantra. How else would you explain one rule applying for Sanjay Gupta’s film The Great Indian Butterfly (TGIB), but the same one not applying for Dibaker Banerjee’s Love Sex Aur Dhokha?

White Feather Films’ TGIB, directed by Sarthak Dasgupta, has a scene in the film where Sandhya Mridul says to her on screen husband, “I have told our parents that we stopped having sex.” The Censor Board thinks the use of the word sex is inappropriate in the film. So, they have beeped it.

This at a time when a film called Love Sex Aur Dhokha has got a clearance in spite of the word sex in the title.

So, what would be more noticeable?

Huge hoardings, promos and incessant ads with ‘sex’ in the title or a simple word in the entire film? If this is not whim, what is!
