The three short films banned from screenings have captured the interest of the people like never before. The Union Ministry of Information and Broadcasting banned the screening of three films that they thought were allegedly contentious – The Unbearable Being of Lightness, In the Shade of Fallen Chinar and March, March, March.

The first film was based on the Rohith Vemula issue. The second film tackled the Kashmir unrest and the third film was all about the JNU protests.

The Kerala Chief Minister, Pinarayi Vijayan, speaking at a festival organised by Kerala Chalachitra Academy said that the Government will provide a platform to voices of dissent, whenever they take the democratic way. He said the Government of Kerala was committed to protect the secular and democratic ethos of India.

The three films have definitely captured the interest of the people and is already available on YouTube.
