kyaa super kool hain hum

The clamour to ban Ekta Kapoor's film "Kyaa Super Kool Hain Hum" just got stronger, with a Congress parliamentarian Friday demanding a ban on the movie for offending the sensitivities of the Christian community in Goa.

Goa's lone Rajya Sabha MP, Shantaram Naik of the Congress, Friday reiterated the demand for a ban on the film, which shows a Christian priest, played by actor Chunky Pandey solemnising the wedding of a dog with a bitch.

"A scene shows a priest sprinkling holy water when a bitch and a dog engage in sexual act. Actor Anupam Kher in the film says Mother Mary said that his dead mother was reincarnated as a bitch. There are many other dialogues which can hurt sentiments of the Christian community," Naik said in the Rajya Sabha during Zero Hour.

"These scenes have hurt the religious sentiments of the Christian community which holds a priest in high esteem. A priest is not only bestowed with serious religious duties but is supposed to be guide and philosopher to many members of the community," the MP further said.

On Thursday, the Congress formally demanded a ban on the comedy film and the arrest of Ekta Kapoor on similar ground.

Congress legislator Reginaldo Lourenco said the Goa government should ban the film in the same manner it banned the controversial film "Da Vinci Code", for offending religious sentiments.

Watch HOllywood films and then learn what COMEDY IS. NOT cheap, vulgar acts -- which is how Bollywood sees comedy.

We see movies making fun of many religions all the time. They offend quite a few muslims when they poke jokes that Islam, or Sikhism. Yet, somehow we're demanding the arrest of a filmmaker because they poked fun at another religion?

While two wrongs don't make a right, you need to be consistent in your judgement, and ruling. If you ban this today, and arrest Ekta today, then you need to ban movies that portray Muslims in the wrong light, Sikhs in the wrong light. And why stop there - how about portraying whole nations incorrectly? Or a particular gender? The prejudice against the west shows itself in many movies. The prejudice against Pakistan. That against the British - it will never stop.

So - be consistent, whichever path you choose.

I haven't seen the movie, and I don't know whether the scene is offensive or not, but an apology could also do, no? Or rather, ask them to recall all the copies, and re-issue it with that scene cut out.

Arresting a person over a comedy movie may be going too far.

To the person below, if it was concerning your beliefs or religion u would be pretty offended too. Banning the movie is a little harsh but what is offensive is and saying no offense at the end makes the statement no less offensive.
