Verna: The Movie They Don’t Want You To Watch

We may have come far as a nation but we are still reluctant to discuss issues such as rape and sexual harassment openly. We think that by talking about them we will make them real but they already are real. In the absence of detailed discussion on the topic, the culprits have gotten stronger. They think they can get away with anything and they have. Especially if they belong to that group of the society who considers themselves above the law.

Shoaib Mansoor’s new film, Verna, revolves around the above mentioned two topics. If you have seen the trailer, you may have gotten the idea about the subject matter. The protagonist of the movie, played by Mahira Khan, has become a victim of a powerful politician’s son. It looks like he’ll get away with it. The cast and the director were busy in the promotion of the movie, which is set to release today. There is also news arrived that the Central Board of Film Censors has banned the movie. According to the CBFC, the film shows scenes of harassment and portrays the wrong image of political institutions.

After the announcement of the ban, the internet was outraged. From celebrities to common people, everyone expressed their strong disapproval of CBFC’s decision. Question is why are we so reluctant to discuss things that are damaging our society every day. Banning a movie about rape will not end rape. Stopping people from watching a movie that shows how the powerful exploit the common people will not hide the truth.

CBFC demanded that the objectionable scenes be eliminated from the movie, which the production company has already done. The film will be released across the country today. Despite the elimination of a few scenes, the message of the movie remains the same: rape and sexual harassment need to end and nobody should be above the law, no matter which office they hold.

    Well written post, Ambreen. I strongly agree with you that we often shy away from discussing issues such as sexual harassment and rape thinking our girls/boys will be mature before time but the truth is they are already witnessing a lot of content on the internet that’s not age appropriate and leaving its mark on their curious minds. Instead of hiding stuff from them we need to educate them and provide them with the right information and we should be the first one to provide them with the first-hand knowledge rather than their mates. ANd yes we do need to produce movies as Verna to highlight the issue and create awareness among the masses, provided the movie is free from inappropriate content and can be watched as a family movie.
