Review: India’s Daughter – Is Ban justified?

British filmmaker Leslee Udwin’s India’s Daughter was due to be shown on BBC in many countries across the world including India itself to mark International Women’s Day on Sunday.

But after the Indian government obtained a court order banning the screening – and wrote to the BBC calling for the film not to be broadcast or posted online anywhere in the world – the BBC went ahead and televised it few days earlier in other countries except India.

Though Modi govt tried a range of measures to suppress an embarrassing documentary   about the gang-rape and murder of a young girl in Delhi popularly known as Nirbhaya rape case.

Ban usually helps create more attention and curiosity.I think had Indian media simply ignored the hype and Govt of India ignored the documentary, it sure would have not been noticed much.

I like lakh of other Indians managed to see the documentary well in time before it was taken off by you tube.

India’s Daughter Documentary starts with shots of white bus moving on Delhi road on evening. It stops to pick a boy and a girl and moves on and next morning Delhi wakes up to hear the chilling story of brutal rape.

Nirbhaya’s mother, father and friends speak about the brave girl and how ambitious she was.The film seems to have been made with full knowledge and permission of Nirbhaya’s parents.

There is a controversial interview with the main rapist who seems to have no pain and remorse on his face.All hue and cry in India is about his statement and statement of Defence Lawyer who too so shamelessly degenerates women and finds faults with women for wearing short dresses, roaming in late evening that too with boy.

I don’t see reason in giving so much importance to what Mukesh Singh, main criminal accused for instigating the rape said who is waiting for being hanged.

The mindset of my countrymen can’t be seen from the prism of mind of a criminal, at all.However statement of lawyer is certainly upsetting.

Additionally, the film raise the concern about Modi Govt’s recent proposal to reduce earlier proposed 660 rape crises centre across the country to just 36.

I also think that we Indians continue to give lot of attention to white people and taking advantage of this , this lady managed to shoot in jail premises that too with criminal not in jail dress( must for all jailed persons).

Having said that, I think the film should have been allowed to be televised as it sure does touch upon few issues relevant to the society and a debate on such issues would have been much better than focusing all attention on what criminal or his stupid lawyer said.

However, what ever it be, rape crimes would come to stop only if rapists are hanged within one year of the crime.That would ensure fear in minds of such sick people. Else public would take up law in their own hands as in Nagaland today.
