The trailer of the film ’72 Hoorain’ has recently been released, generating controversy due to the absence of a No Objection Certificate (NOC) from the Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC). Directed by Sanjay Piran Singh Chauhan, the film is set to be released on July 7, 2023. This article provides an overview of the film, the controversy surrounding its trailer, and the response from the filmmakers and industry professionals.
’72 Hoorain’ is a Hindi-language film directed by Sanjay Piran Singh Chauhan. The black and white trailer is centered around the Mumbai Taj Mahal blasts and features Pavan Malhotra as Hakim Ali and Aamir Bashir as Bilal Ahmed, portraying two terrorists involved in the attacks. The trailer explores themes of religious terrorism, raising questions about the underlying ideology of jihad and the promises of martyrdom.
Controversy Over No Objection Certificate
The release of the ’72 Hoorain’ trailer has been marred by controversy due to the absence of a No Objection Certificate from the CBFC. On June 27, the CBFC denied certification to the trailer, prompting objections from the co-producer of the film, Ashoke Pandit. Pandit appealed to Anurag Thakur, the Union Minister of Information and Broadcasting, and Prasoon Joshi, the Chairperson of CBFC, requesting a smooth release of the trailer.
Response from Filmmakers and Industry Professionals
Amid the controversy, film critic and trade analyst Taran Adarsh shared the trailer on Twitter. Directed by National Award winner Sanjay Piran Singh Chauhan, the film is scheduled to arrive in cinemas on July 7, 2023. The film’s production is credited to Gulab Singh Tanwar, Kiran Dagar, and Anirudh Tanwar, with Ashoke Pandit serving as the co-producer.
At the trailer launch event, Ashoke Pandit questioned the CBFC’s decision to withhold the No Objection Certificate on June 27. Pandit emphasized that all the visuals in the trailer were taken from the film itself, raising concerns about the objection raised by the CBFC.
Previous Controversy and Backlash
Prior to the release of the trailer, ’72 Hoorain’ faced controversy over alleged misleading claims made in its teaser, which was released on June 6. The film also garnered criticism from religious groups and political leaders in Kashmir for its negative portrayal of Muslims.
As the release date approaches, the filmmakers and industry professionals are hopeful for a resolution to the certification issue and a smooth release of ’72 Hoorain’ in theaters.
