Storyline

Under the directions of the Minister for Information and Broadcasting, the Indian Censor Board prepares a list of cuts for Bollywood film producer, Vikramjeet's new movie "Aane Wala Kal". Vikramjeet is unhappy and decides to meet the Minister himself to appeal against these cuts, only to find out that the Minister favors even more cuts. Then Vikramjeet shows this movie in a private theatre to an audience from all walks of life, he then takes their written opinion, smuggles a copy to America, just in time to ensure that it is nominated for an Oscar. This is where Vikramjeet's troubles start as the Censor Board refuses to grant a "U" certificate; he is arrested for smuggling the movie without permission from the Reserve Bank of India. The only way he can escape the wrath of the authorities is getting some fans and stars of his movie to gather some dirt on the Censor Board members and expose them publicly. But will this pacify the authorities, or will it aggravate the situation. Watch ... Written by rAjOo (gunwanti@hotmail.com)

User Reviews

It's another brilliant masterpiece by Dev Anand. It's about this acclaimed director who makes a movie which fails to get cleared by the censor board in India.
26 April 2005 | by kunalgSee all my reviews

Dev Anand has blessed us with his cinematic genius once again with this movie which questions social norms with regards to what should be censored in movies and what should not. It explores several issues regarding the youth of India and also tries to capture their beliefs and ideas. It shows that the youth of the country is well informed and is capable of taking sensible divisions if given the power to. It also shows that even if the youth may be discarded as not being able to confirm with the socially appropriate (and conventional) paths, it is still capable of making this world a better place to live. Kudos Mr Anand. We hope you continue to bless us with many more cinematic masterpieces.
