Benegal Panel Recommends ‘Adults With Caution’ Tag For Movies With Sex, Violence Or Drugs

Updated on 15 October, 2018 at 11:41 am By

Just days after the ‘Udta Punjab’ controversy, the Shyam Benegal panel has suggested providing movies that contain “Nudity, explicit sex, detailed portrayal of violence acts or illegal use of psychotropic substance which harm public health or morals” an ‘Adults with Caution’ film certification.

Few days back the panel has also recommended that the censor board, or the Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC) should ‘categorise’ movies rather than ‘cut them’.

Adding on that suggestion the panel said that the film that “genuinely seeks to inform and educate in matters such as human sexuality or safer sex and health,” they should be allowed to use explicit images of sexual activity”.

They also recommended six categories for classifying movies which included U (Unrestricted Public Exhibition), UA12+ (over 12 years), UAl5+ (over 15 years), A (Adult), AC (Adult with Caution) or S (for special niche audiences).

The special committee was formed by the IB ministry so as to look holistically at the Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC).

In its recommendation, the panel also clarified that while it was “impossible to set out a comprehensive list of words, expressions or gestures that are acceptable at each category in every Indian language,” movies with offensive or abusive dialogues should lead to higher classifications of certification.
