On Friday, July 22, the eagerly anticipated film Shamshera was released. Unfortunately, it hasn’t had the best start. Additionally, the word of mouth has not been great, which will make it difficult for the movie to do well commercially. Therefore, everyone is waiting for the release of Ek Villain Returns next week. Despite the fact that Shamshera was also subject to high expectations, there are a lot of things to look for with Mohit Suri’s upcoming movie.

Given the sizzling sequences in Ek Villain Returns and the general expectation that it would receive an adults-only rating, the film was given a U/A certificate by the Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC), nevertheless. However, the makers were forced to make two changes, one involving the dialogue and the other involving the graphics.

The CBFC’s examining committee requested that some phrases, including “Mental,” “Kuttiya,” “B*tch,” “Kamina,” and “Harami,” be changed to more appropriate ones or removed altogether. Second, the makers were instructed to remove or modify as necessary any pictures of people being killed with a saw blade, photos of blood and flesh, and prominent pictures of dismembered body parts. Even the intimate scenes involving Disha Patani that were extensively displayed in the trailer have been either trimmed or toned down. On the plus side, the Censor Board only removed 9 seconds’ worth of visuals.
