Before Aarakshan, the only other movie that has
managed to grab headlines across the country was
Deepa Mehta's Fire, way back in 1996. Depicting a
lesbian relationship between Shabana Azmi and
Nandita Das, the film was banned completely.
Prakash Jha's Aarakshan, while still set for its Friday release, is obviously in some sort of competition
with Fire; the film has raked up an endless pile of
controversies, with only more adding on every few
seconds. In political circles, it's almost the cool thing
to do to berate the film, to cast aspersions on its
controversial subject matter (as the name suggests, Aarakshan deals with the sensitive issue of
reservation for the backward classes).
