Telugu Regional Censor Board Chief Dhanalakshmi is firm while certifying the films. She faced criticism from star heroes, top directors and producers for suggesting major cuts and also giving A certificates for silly reasons. Dhanalakshmi even troubled Mohan Babu by recommending major cuts in Denikaina Ready movie. The film unit later approached Revising Committee and luckily escaped with minor cuts. Filmmaker Ram Gopal Varma went a step forward by filing a case against Dhanalakshmi for delaying censor for Satya 2 movie.
Now it appears like, the same Dhanalakshmi is sleeping while watching the films for certification.
Recently, family audience expressed shock after watching ‘Oka Criminal Prema Katha’. The film which was projected as family entertainer had plenty of vulgar content. Tollywood star actors mentor Satyanand’s character was shown in unethical demeanor. The movie was like S-education for youth and no one knows what was Dhanalakshmi doing then without specifying the cuts.
Agaian, the male police officer Ravi Kale beating Meena and the little kid Esther brutally in police station was an offensive sequence in Venkatesh starrer Drishyam. In fact, this is against law and police even had a choice to file the complaint on film producers.
What was Dhanlakshmi doing while screening of both these films for Censor? Didn’t she find any fault in them? Luckily both the films escaped from Dhanalakshmi but caught in the eye of critics.
