Vishwaroopam - Cultural Terrorism - Does it make sense?

How much freedom should be given to an artist? If we decide upon this once and for all, it would be easier to decide on whether a movie or creation of art should be banned or not.

Interesting fact is that Indian censor board approved the movie. Then, the question to ponder upon was, why did Kamal Hassan chose to have special screening for selected muslims? Well, there can be varied arguments to this.

They may say that it can be publicity stunts. But, do Kamal Hassan need stunts for his movies? I do not think so.

Let's wait and watch!

Bollywood guys must be thinking of a script

Well, this rape case has proved how ruthless a rapist could become and how could media put an order into place. Bollywood has made several movies on real life stories. And, I am sure this could be another one which could inspire some of them to depict this face of society.

This also displays how weird and blind politicians could get and how horribly bad police guys could become. Gosh!!
