Joker movie was re-submitted for censor certification after cutting 58 scenes that contained ban violence for big screens display in India. but were not approved for display.
The name of the movie that made a splash in world cinema in 2019 is Joker. The movie has been the talk of the town throughout the year, with acclaim, criticism, controversy and awards.
How much money can a movie made at a cost of about $5 billion bring to the box office? Leaving the reins of imagination may not be predictable. Joker’s income has exceeded $90 billion.
However, the movie was not allowed to enter several countries, including China, a major market for the movie. This time the Joker was banned on the small screen in India. The movie was not allowed to be shown on television at all.
The movie has been given a ‘U’ certificate for its release on the big screen in India. That means people under the age of 18 are not allowed to see the movie. But it was not allowed to be shown on television.
The movie was re-submitted for censorship after cutting 56 scenes with ‘violence’. But the results have not changed.
Indian journalist Utkarsh Anand shared this on Twitter. It said, “Even after cutting ’56 scenes, this movie can have a negative effect on the child’s mind.”
The way the antihero (Joker) in the movie glorifies violence is a threat to the mental health of people under the age of 18. This movie could push them to bleed. So the decision has remained unchanged. The film cannot be shown on television.
However, many did not like this decision. One joker fans wrote, ‘Why? Isn’t violence shown in Bollywood action movies and South Indian movies? They are running on TV all day.
The Joker is ahead not only commercially, but also internationally. Directed by Todd Phillips, The Joker has won Golden Globe and BAFTA awards.
Besides, it has been nominated in 11 categories including the best movie and best director at the 92nd Oscar. The Oscar for Best Actor went to Joker Phoenix. The movie also won an Oscar for Best Original Score.
