Middle East countries ban 'Lamhaa'

lamhaa

Director Rahul Dholakia’s film Lamhaa, which tells us the untold story of Kashmir, has been banned in the Middle East. The movie, which is set to release this Friday, won’t be screened in UAE, Bahrain, Qatar and Kuwait.

The exact reason for the censor board to ban this film in the above mentioned countries is not yet clear.

Bipasha Basu is literally shocked with this news.

She tweeted: “Ban on honest film? What happened to freedom of expression? Sadly, people of Kuwait, Bahrain, Qatar, Oman and UAE won’t be able to watch our film.”

Sanjay Dutt, who plays a sharp shooter in the film, too was disappointed with this development and shared Bipasha’s feelings.

“First, the film could not be premiered in Kashmir and now the Middle East has banned the film,” Dutt wrote on Twitter.

Well, I wonder what went wrong…

  1. Complicated yes,but the movie has received excellent reviews from the public & the critics.I would love to c it.

  2. guys you don’t get it , middle east and india don’t see eye to eye regarding Kashmir , it’s complicated

  3. HYD u don’t make sense!! its the middle eastern countries who have banned the movie not india…
    and yeah the movie is about kashmir, which is located in India(not in any other country)
    so yeah the movie does talk abt india’s culture in kashmir
    now dooo u get it?? or ur still stuck in up there???(in the brain)

  4. INDIAN MOVES ALLWAYS TRY TO SHOW WHATS GOING ON IN DIFFRENT COUNTRYS BUT THEY WILL NOT SHOW WHATS GOING IN THERE HOME …………

  5. not sure what this film is trying to achieve but media has a big influence on the public these days dont believe everything u see and hear!!! but banning the film wont help……….

  6. HYD – no-ones making films against anything… they just want to make people ware of the circumstances n issues that are hidden from the world! thats all! its a shame really! i think this movie will be quite good!

  7. Good Dont Make the films against culture…….

    the what every country u live follows the cultures and law ……..Dont try to make flims against them….

  8. There must be definitely some big secret behind this ban, otherwise why would 4 countries would together ban such a honest film.People know that Srinagar is a beautiful place but very less people are aware of its internal issues which when solved can benifit India to a very large extent.
    This film deserves to be screened all over the world, then why this ban?
