Zindagi Tamasha Will Be Released If No Inappropriate Content is Found: Senator

The story is not over yet.

Zindagi Tamasha

Zindagi Tamasha, still awaits clearance for release. Now the Senate Committee of Human Rights has taken up the case. It says that it will either clear the film or allow yet another round of review.

The Senate Committee is set to view and review the film on March 16th. The Committee will decide if the movie needs to be sent to the Council of Islamic Ideology (CII) for approval.

According to reports, Senator of Pakistan People’s Party (PPP), Mustafa Nawaz Khokhar said that the Committee has barred CII from reviewing the film.

Meanwhile, they’ve directed the Central Board of Film Censors to provide a copy of Zindagi Tamasha to the panel for screening.

Senator Mustafa Khokhar stated that if the Senate Committee does not find the film ‘objectionable’ they will issue release orders immediately.

“If we find something objectionable [in the film], we will forward it to the CII,”

After being cleared by censor boards twice, the word is there’s nothing questionable in the film. That’s why the Human Rights Committee took notice of the issue.

“According to reports so far, there is nothing objectionable in the movie,”

Chairman of the Central Censorship Board, Danyal Gilani appeared before the panel that decided the Senate committee would clear the film instead.

Zindagi Tamasha was banned on the insistence of harline religious political party Tehreek-e-Labaik Pakistan. The TLP threatened protests to close down the capital if the film was released.

Subsequently, the film was banned and set to be reviewed by another panel including a member of TLP.

It was later announced that the CII would now clear the film. Good thing the parliament got involved, as they say that they will ‘not come under anyone’s pressure‘.

“Parliament will exercise its authority … We should not come under pressure of those parties who held Islamabad hostage twice,”
