“Udta Punjab Is The Most Original And Jolting Film Since Rang De Basanti” – Subhash K Jha

18 June 2016 12:32 AM, PDT | Bollyspice | See recent Bollyspice news »

Udta Punjab

Starring Shahid Kapoor, Kareena Kapoor Khan, Alia Bhatt, Diljit Dosanjh

Directed by Abhishek Choubey

Who thinks of such a story to tell?! Only a mind that is either supremely screwed-up or stunningly sorted. In director Abhishek Choubey’s case, I’d go with the latter.

Udta Punjab is a work of contemporary art so audaciously unprecedented in its vision and execution of a subject that is topical and timeless, you wonder if Bollywood, as we love and hate it, is finally growing up.

On the other hand lest we forget, filmmakers in the past like Bimal Roy, Guru Dutt and Gulzar constantly prodded and pushed mainstream Hindi cinema into areas of darkness, not fearful of the unlit interiors of the human heart.

Abhishek Choubey takes this forward to an altogether new high, the politically empowered human drama of Bimal Roy’s Do Bigha Zameen (the migrant’s plight in the city, »

Supreme Court declines stay on Udta Punjabs release

16 June 2016 7:40 AM, PDT | BollywoodHungama | See recent BollywoodHungama news »

After winning the battle against Cbfc, Bombay High Court passed Udta Punjab with one cut earlier this week. The makers of the film were relieved after the verdict until a plea was filed against the film at the Supreme Court. A plea was filed by Punjab-based Ngo Human Rights Awareness Association to stop the screenings of the film as it focuses on the drug menace prevailing in Punjab and will show the state in bad light. Today, Senior Counsel Meenakshi Arora who appeared on behalf of Phantom Films said that the film received the certificate last night from Cbfc and the has already been released overseas. Later, a bench of Justices Adarsh Kumar Goel and L. Nageswara Rao heard plea and declined the stay on the film's release and allowed the Ngo to approach Punjab and Haryana High Court. Similarly, the Punjab and Haryana High Courts have also cleared the film stating that Punjab was not depicted in a bad light by the film. This came after a petition had been filed in both courts seeking a stay on the release of the film. Yesterday, we also reported that the film got leaked on various websites two days before its official release. The cast and crew have been urging the fans to wait for its official release and watch it in theatres instead of watching the pirated copies. Directed by Abhishek Chaubey, Udta Punjab stars Shahid Kapoor, Alia Bhatt, Kareena Kapoor Khan and Diljit Dosanjh and it releases tomorrow June 17. »

Indian Court Lets ‘Punjab’ Fly

13 June 2016 6:47 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

In a landmark judgement that will have ramifications on how films are certified in India, the Bombay High Court has overturned the censorship decisions of the Central Board of Film Certification (Cbfc) and allowed the film “Udta Punjab” (literally Flying Punjab) to release with only one cut.

The Hindi- and Punjabi- language film, directed by Abhishek Chaubey, and starring Shahid Kapoor, Kareena Kapoor, Alia Bhatt and Diljit Dosanjh, looks at drug addiction among youth in the northern Indian state of Punjab.

The Cbfc demanded more than 40 cuts. Production companies Phantom Films and Balaji Motion Pictures then applied to a Revising Committee which increased the number of edits required to more than 80. The committee also required for the removal of all references to Punjab by name. That is when Phantom and Balaji moved the Bombay High Court.

On Friday, the court told the Cbfc that their job was to certify films and not censor them. On Saturday, Cbfc head Pahlaj Nihalani said that the film had been passed with 13 cuts.

On Sunday, India’s minister for information and broadcasting tweeted: “Govt committed to bringing about a perceptible change for better in Cbfc v soon; certification only, not censorship.”

And on Monday, the court said, “We have read the script in its entirety to see if the film encourages drugs. We do not find the film questions sovereignty or integrity of India by the names of cities, reference to state or by a signpost.”

“It is not for anybody to interfere unless and until creative freedom is abused,” the court added.

The only cut the court wants is that of a musician urinating onto a crowd at a concert. Release is now confirmed for June 17.

Missing the release date of Udta Punjab will be a huge financial blow says Balaji team

10 June 2016 7:42 AM, PDT | BollywoodHungama | See recent BollywoodHungama news »

We know that Ekta Kapoor and Anurag Kashyap's production Udta Punjab landed in major trouble when Censor Board of Film Certification (Cbfc) ordered several cuts due to abusive language, drug problems and use of the name 'Punjab' in the film. Even Punjab word from the title was asked to be removed. It just did not end there. Things got ugly between Udta Punjab team and Censor board Chief Pahlaj Nihalani on the grounds of censorship. Anurag Kashyap's production Phantom films is co-producing the film and decided to call out the bullying of censor board and not go through with the ordered 94 cuts. A press conference was also held earlier this week in order to protest against Cbfc. The Udta Punjab team got support from industry filmmakers at the press meet. Though Ekta Kapoor did not address the issue herself on that day, an official statement has been released by her production house. »

There was trepidation regarding the atmospheric pressure on the sets of Vishal Bhardwaj's Rangoon, what with the two leading men Shahid Kapoor and Saif Ali Khan sharing a past. For those who came in late. Shahid was in a relationship with Kareena Kapoor before she fell in love with and married Saif and became a Khan . Understandably one expected sparks to fly between the two....errrr....rivals. Producer Sajid Nadiadwala had warned director Vishal Bhardwaj on the pitfalls of casting Kareena's past and present together. But Vishal who had worked wonders with both actors in the past was adamant. And Vishal's faith proved legitimate. Says a source from location, "There is no rivalry between Saif and Shahid. Initially when they started together they were polite and aloof to one another. As the shooting progressed they discovered many common interests. The two actors began to have earnest conversations between shots. »
