Smartphones and gadgets have eased the possibilities of viewing despite the ban. Undoubtedly, viewers have become more inquisitive about the film. As a result the string of controversies regarding the same does not seem to end.
Propaganda or reality? Netizens are divided into two provided options. Initially, questions regarding the actual number of women who were converted were doing rounds on the internet. Later director Sudipto Sen in his tweet evaded the confusion by stating that the maximum number was a representation of a larger section of women.
According to Hindustan Times reports, the movie is all set to enter the 150 crore club, already minting 147 crore at the box office.
Critics and general viewers alike are assertive in viewing the film. According to cinema hall owners, "good film" according to them is one which would do great business. However, the entertainment angle is getting behind heavy words like propaganda.
Post the film was banned in West Bengal, the makers went up to the Supreme Court to challenge a plea regarding the same. It was done on the grounds of fear of disrupting communal harmony. However, no incidents of aversion were reported.
