  • Closing ceremony of IFFI 2017

The film that was earlier titled Sexy Durga was granted U/A certificate after the CBFC asked for several modifications and deletions.

After an evening of high drama and uncertainty hidden under a shroud of secrecy, the fate of S Durga, Sanal Kumar Sasidharan's Malayalam film is finally known.

This means the film, cleared twice by Kerala High Court and twice by the festival jury - whose latest approval came on Monday night - can not be screened anywhere in India till the board re-examines it. The letter further accuses the producer of deliberately violating the rules of the Cinematograph Act.

In a letter dated November 28, the CBFC board said that the certification of the film directed by Sanal Kumar Sasidharan will be re-examined, citing issues regarding the title of the film. To this Sanal responds, "If IFFI is sitting around waiting for the Festival to be over without showing my film, then it would amount to contempt of court and I'll take legal action against the I & B ministry and the Government accordingly". The jury that deliberated till late last night, voted 7:4 in favour of the film to be screened on the last day. From the exclusion of S Durga and Nude from the Indian Panorama section, Sujoy Ghosh's resignation as the jury chief to Pakistani film Saawan being dropped and 20 people getting sacked by Information and Broadcasting (I&B) Minister Smriti Irani, the film festival was the focal point of a lot of tension.

Just three months before the film festival, Smriti Irani and her office removed 20 people from the film festival review committee. "S### Durga (where the # means rectangular white boxes) has totally different implications and are effectively undermining and attempting to defeat the very basis of the title registration and changes effected thereby", says the letter written to Shaji Mathew of NIV Art Movies, the producer of S Durga. Our film is not Sexy Durga now, it is Sexy Democracy. But Sanal is not convinced about the Festival's intention of actually screening the film. But days before the festival began, the I&B ministry, without informing the then jury chairman - filmmaker Sujoy Ghosh - made a decision to remove the movie from the final list.
