Fiction friction

Thankfully, The da Vinci Code has been cleared by the Censor Board after a special screening was held to please the leaders of the Indian Christian community.

Rediff.com reports:

After watching the controversial film Da Vinci Code at a special show in New Delhi on Thursday, the Censor Board has cleared the film with an 'Adult' certificate.

The film has been cleared without cuts, but it will carry a disclaimer at the beginning and at the end.

CNN's report on the movie's screening @ Cannes Film Festival is bad. Looks like they haven't done justice to the book. Im planning to watch it anyway.. Letz see. Gonna watch it Vijay?

Think that is the one where Hanks reveals that Audrey Tautou is the descendant of the holy family of Christ. Check out www.imdb.com site for reviews, where they have criticised the plot as verbose and boring. But the veracity of the reviewer (who might be a catholic), who had not read the book is debatable. Still when you have Tom Hanks and Ron Howard in a film, it should be worth a watch

first it was the 'plagiarism' of dan brown. then , the church protests. now , an "A" certificate with a 15 second disclaimer. good promos for the movie , don't you think so?i wouldn't be surprised if it turned out to be a wild hit! :)
