We all call ‘emergency’ a period, but we forget that it isn’t related to some year or any time, it can happen anytime as per the wishes of those who have power.

And believe this, it can even happen for a source of awareness and entertainment i.e. a film. A film maker can’t choose his subject and the recent film to suffer is Madhur Bhandarkar’s Indu Sarkar. The film has been facing a lot of turmoil ever since its trailer release.

Congress in Maharashtra has opposed the film; Sanjay Nirupam, the President of the Mumbai Regional Congress Committee has expressed concerns over the portrayal of Indira Gandhi and other Congress leaders in the film and wants to watch the film before it goes for censorship.

There are threatening posters in Allahabad offering reward to blacken Madhur Bhandarkar’s face, the film maker is receiving threat calls, his effigy was burned in Lucknow on Sunday, and now the congress is asking cinema owners not to exhibit Indu Sarkar in Madhya Pradesh’s Indore.

All this is just a part of the list full of oppositions. The director of the film is being targeted for no good reason, the film maker has quoted on several occasions that he has used ‘emergency’ as only the background of the film and it has no political agenda. He has also insisted multiple times that the film should not be judged by what is shown in a mere 3-minute trailer.

But the wave of hindrance continues to flow and it seems like it’s ‘emergency’ all over again for Madhur Bhandarkar.
