    Default Women demand ban on 'obscene' Tamil film

    NEW DELHI - Women activists in the Indian state of Tamil Nadu have demanded a ban on the film New, which they say contains obscene sex scenes.

    The film has been doing big business since its release last week. Based on the Hollywood movie Big, the film depicts the adventures of a child who becomes an adult yet retains the mind of a boy.


    But critics say the similarity ends there, as the Tamil movie contains indecent images and 'smutty dialogue'.

    The film has caused controversy because when the boy becomes an adult at night, he is seduced by his wife.

    According to the BBC, that provides scope for steamy scenes and innuendo.

    Members of the All India Democratic Women's Association have held a series of demonstrations demanding the withdrawal of the film, but theatre owners say the protests have only improved ticket sales.

    The film's director and lead actor, Mr M.J. Surya, says there is nothing in it against women or children. He says the sex scenes are there because the story line requires them. He describes his film as 'fiction laced with sex and comedy'.

    A similar row erupted in June, when Hindu hardliners destroyed posters of a recent Bollywood film about lesbians, called Girlfriend. They said the film was contradictory to Indian culture.

    As a person who condome "obscene" movies, I should say that everybody should have freedom of speech to express him/herself. Banning a film will introduce the problem of "filtering" and "big brothering". Instead, there sould be a rating system to keep the young audiece away from this kind of movies.

    PS. The best way to punish the director of a movie is not going to his/her movie.
