Ayogya Sails Through The Censor Board, In Spite Of Hardhitting Content

 Tamil star  Vishal Krishna  who is  known  to be anti-establishment in his  real and reel roles, was  surprised  to sail  through the  censor board with a ‘UA’  and  no cut in  his  new release Ayogya.
The film deals  with  one cop’s  conversion from  callous corruption to conscientious  vigilantism  after a  rape incident.

Confesses Vishal, “We  expected some  hardhitting scenes  would be  objected to. And we were  prepared  to  put  up a fight,  although our release  was just three days away. We got our censor certificate  on  Tuesday evening  and if there was delay we  would have been forced to  postpone  our release.”

To Vishal’s surprise the  censorboard took an unconditionally liberal  view of the film’s intense  drama and violence.

“The censorboard gave us a ‘UA’ with no cuts at all, not even a token beep,” says  Visha happily, confessing that his  fans  would have been very disappointed  if  the  film got  an  ‘A’ certificate.

 Opines  Vishal, “The wrongs in our society must be seen by the  young.It’s time we  took a liberal stand against over-conservative attitudes to censorship.Simply by shutting our eyes we can’t  get rid of  the  problems  that plague society.Cinema  must reflect all the malaise  in our society.And for cinema  to portray reality honestly, there should be  no attempt to muzzle the creative process as long as it’s honest and within  the  limits of decency and  decorum.”
