In a RARE instance, Bombay High Court orders Hamare Baarah makers to delete controversial dialogues even though the Annu Kapoor-starrer has been passed by CBFC

The Annu Kapoor-starrer Hamare Baarah has faced several controversies, even before the trailer was out. The Annu Kapoor-starrer was all set to release on June 7 but on June 5, the Bombay High Court put a stay order on its release until June 14. But on June 7, the High Court agreed to clear the release after the makers agreed to delete dialogues that were deemed objectionable by the petitioner.

An industry insider commented, “This is unprecedented or maybe it's a rare instance wherein a film passed by the Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC) has been asked by the Court for more cuts. Usually, when anyone went to Court to stall the release of the film, the petition usually was not entertained, citing that the film has been cleared by the Censor Board.”

The Court, however, as per Live Law, did maintain that “We are of the view that if an individual such as in this Petition is permitted to stall the release of movies which have been duly certified by the CBFC it would encourage holding film producers to ransom.”

Bollywood Hungama has got hold of the cut lists approved by the CBFC on June 7. It mentions three cuts in the film. At the very beginning of the film, the slogan 'Allah hu Akbar' was muted. The other dialogues that were censored were 'Shauhar mazaaz-e-khuda hota hai aur mazaaz-e-khuda ke khilaaf jaana kufra hai; kufra ki sahaaa maut hai' and 'Aurat salwar ke naade ki tarah honi chahiye; jab tak andar rahegi, behtar rahegi'.

The petition, filed by Azhar Basha Tamboli, claimed that the film was in complete contravention of the provisions of the Cinematograph Act, 1952. It further stated that the film depicts that the lives of married Muslim women have no independent rights as individuals in society owing to a verse in the Quran. According to the petitioner, the makers have indulged in a misreading of the said verse.

Hamare Baarah was earlier titled Hum Do Hamare Baarah and the film's Revising Committee (RC) suggested that the title should be changed and that it should be 'women-centric'. They were told to insert a disclaimer and to give references to CBFC about dialogues on 'women marriage' in the Quran and Islamic Culture.

Further, the CBFC asked to replace the words 'Bazaaru Aurat' and to replace 'Islam' with 'mazhab'. The dialogue uttered by a Maulana in the film, 'Apni Kheti Karo .... Jyada Se Jyada Musalmaan Paida Karo', was deleted. Another controversial dialogue that was deleted was 'Gaay Ka Moot Pilayenge Aur Hindu Banayenge'. The word 'f***ing' was muted and in the dialogue 'Maa ko Allah se upar darja diya dai', 'Allah' was muted.
