India prides itself in being the world's largest democracy as also for its robust film industry, with Indian films having attained global popularity and at least some of them being internationally acclaimed. However, it is unfortunate that the civil liberties that underlie a democratic system have undergone grave onslaughts time and again, with provincial governments banning films cleared by the censor board, to appease certain sections of the society for vote-bank politics, though the judiciary has made positive interventions to get these unwarranted bans revoked. The book delves into the freedom of speech and expression and reasonable restrictions on the same, and how it is enshrined in different international conventions as also under the Indian constitution, and then looks at the issue of how politicians in India have tried to curb this right, taking in particular the cases of certain specific movies like Vishwaroopam. This book examines legal reforms to curb this problem.
