Bollywood has been the biggest film industry in the world in terms of the number of movies produced every year. However, apart from all the ups and downs, the hits and flops, there lives another brand of Indian cinema which is deliberately and predominantly kept out of our reach. Films that are indulged in harsh (bold) language, suggestive (vulgar) scenes, religion issues, are basically included in banned movies in India. Also, there are some Thriller Web Series Hindi that have become the go-to source of entertainment for Indian audiences today. People who are active on social media expect intelligent content and have moved past TV serials to web shows. Here are some electrifying and banned web shows one must watch!
Bandit Queen was straight up banned by the censor board
Whenever we imagine any Bollywood horror movie, what could come to mind better than a Ramsay film with a big old haveli, Ramu kaka, creaking doors, and ugly-as-hell monstrous creatures. The graphics and costumes used to be so bad, that they look funny, not even scary. But while some movies have eradicated the reputation of Bollywood horror flicks but that doesn’t mean that Bollywood has never given any gems. Movies like Bandit Queen was straight up ‘offensive’, ‘vulgar’, ‘insensitive’ and almost laughed at the cinematic conservatism of the Indian censor board. The subject relies on the life of Phoolan Devi, this Shekhar Kapur movie was banned because of its explicit sexual content, nudity and abusive language, which the Censor Board could not digest.
Twisted robs you in so much of twists and is known to be a thriller web series
Filmmakers in our nation have come a long way. From making commercial, short cinemas, documentaries to now thrilling web series, Indian directors are rolling content-rich shows for digital media. Ever since Netflix and Amazon Prime have reached the Indian markets, the preference of web series over cinema got an increment of main-folds. While it was limited to normal actors but now A-listers are being brought in for the digital platform. It seems LGBTQ-themed content is in fashion among Bollywood filmmakers these days. Ekta Kapoor surprised her viewers by offering Gay romance in one of her shows. After that filmmaker, Vikram Bhatt has joined the gang by introducing an unexpected twist in his popular Crime-Suspense thriller web-series Twisted. Series like “Tantra, don’t blink, breathe” also got breath taking attention on their release.
“Kama sutra is explicit and offensive,” says censor board
There are so many movies which censor board is declaring unlawful to release, sell or even own. Certain films have always been a longstanding tradition. And of course, with its outrageous, button-pushing content, horror is the favorite target of overzealous censors for years. In a rather hypocritical move, Kama Sutra also got to face the pressure of the Censor Board which termed it ‘explicit’, ‘unethical’ and ‘bold’ for the audiences of the nation which came up with the concept of Kama Sutra ahead!
Censor board cannot digest these films for their bold scenes
Horror movies are designed to be less productive and more scary, uncomfortable, and downright agitating affairs. And yet, what sort of fascination do we have with them? Not all are literally gruesome, but a few have shaped the boundaries of taste to such an extreme, that they’ve actually been deemed illegal and inappropriate & finally are counted in Banned Movies in India. Fire, black Friday are among those notorious fright films that were found to be so violent, and so depraved upon their release that they were banned-as surely, they must have corrupted the otherwise pure and innocent minds of people who watched them.
