Director of the film Mahesh Manjrekar crosses all limits of decency, should apologise to Marathi people : HJS

Ban ‘Nay Varanbhat Loncha …’ which contains sex scenes depicting women and child-porn

The forthcoming Marathi film ‘Nay Varanbhat Loncha Kon Nay Koncha’ directed by Mahesh Manjrekar will be in theatres soon. The trailer of this film itself seems to indicate that such a low-quality art may not have been produced in the history of Marathi cinema. Its trailer shows absolutely incorrect scenes and dialogues about the women and children of mill labourers. We wonder if it is the same Mahesh Manjrekar who has played the role of Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj in the film ‘Mi Shivaji Raje Bhosale Boltoy’ and raised the self-esteem of Maharashtrians. There are many things such as filthy abuses, juvenile delinquency, obscene scenes with children in the trailer. Hindu Janajagruti Samiti (HJS) has demanded that Mahesh Manjrekar should apologise to all Maharashtrians for crossing all limits of decency.

After watching the trailer, people all over the country including Maharashtra are expressing intense rage. The National Commission for Protection of Child Rights, the National Commission for Women and the State Commission for Women (Maharashtra) have also objected to the film and demanded action from the Central Board of Film Certification and the Police. The question being asked is how did the Central Board of Film Certification give permission to release its trailer ? This matter should be investigated. HJS has also demanded that the film not at all be issue the censor certificate.


Ban Mahesh Manjrekar’s movie ‘Nay Varan Bhat Loncha Kon Nay Koncha’ abusing women and children

Mahesh Manjrekar’s trailer for his new film “ Nay Varan Bhat Loncha Kon Nay Koncha ” has crossed all boundaries of socialism. The National Commission for women in a letter to the Union Information Ministry has demanded that the objectionable content related to women and children be deleted immediately.

 

The anger is brewing among Marathi people due to the distortion of life of mill hands and chawl culture by Manjrekar in his new film. The issue is raging also in social media and many labour leaders have demanded that the release of the film be stopped forthwith.

Mahesh Manjrekar’s new film “ Nay Varan Bhat Loncha Kon Nay Koncha ” is slated to be released on Friday. However, the mill hands’ life and chawl culture has been shown in a disgraceful manner. The film shows alleged illicit relations of women and children, immoral activities and violence etc.

The teaser of the film has already met with the strong resentment of Marathi people reflected in social media. The mill leaders have demanded an immediate ban on the film and have questioned Manjrekar’s wisdom in presenting the life of workers and their children in poor light.

Censure objectionable scenes…

Manjrekar has published his film through Facebook, YouTube, Twitter and other modes without considering the fact that even the children are exposed to the content published on these platforms. The film projects the women and children in a bad light. As such the I & B ministry should take cognizance of the objectionable scenes. The sexually explicit scenes should be cut and the Censor Board Chairman Prasun Joshi should act in the matter, The National Commission for Women Chairperson Rekha Sharma has stated.

As per the reports by Cinestaan, the film has a large adult cast, but the story largely revolves around two impoverished teenagers, played by Prem Dharmadhikari and Varad Nagwekar. The two enter the path of crime at an early age. Driven by self-interest, they become so cold-blooded that they fail to realize the seriousness of their crimes.  The very first scene in the trailer makes it clear what to expect. The youths are seen washing their hands from a puddle of water in a home after slaughtering the owners. The trailer ends with a scene that transpires before the murders where one of them slashes the genitals of the man. In another scene, Dharmadhikari’s character is seen making a move on his own aunt. It is daring of the makers to attempt to release such a film in theatres. However, its edgy content doesn’t appear as natural as the kind we have seen in recent years in various web-series.

Is Manjrekar distinct from a common man ?

We will not allow the film to run

Although the film is based on Jayant Pawar’s book, it does not show a single example of mill workers’ real life. The mill hands lost what they had. But they have not given up their fight. The mill worker is a fighter and he is still fighting. The story of the film does not project the real workmen culture. Manjrekar’s film is an attempt to distort society in the guise of exhibiting mill hands. Is Manjrekar a common man?

This is not Mill hand’s history. As such we will not allow the film to be released, Girni Kamgar and Sarva Shramik Sanghatana President B K Ambre said. After the closure of textile mills, the workers did jobs like selling vegetables, clothes, stitching bags etc. But what Manjrekar did was just distort the issue. The Marathi manus and mill hands will not allow the film to be released, Labor leader Uday Bhat said.

The film is an attempt to defame Marathi manus

The children of mill hands residing in Parel and Lalbaug were not gangsters. After the mill closure, the children did a lot of hard work. They distributed newspapers, sold Vada Pav etc. and completed their education. They supported their families. The objectionable scenes will defame Marathi people, Sanjay Bharatiya registered his reaction on social media.

“What is the difference between “Lalbaug and Paral” and this film? Kedar Ajit tweeted. Does the film become “realistic” by showing naked scenes, filthy abuses in the name of mother and sister? Kedar Ajit has asked.
