Have you heard about these 5 banned Indian movies?

1. Bandit Queen: Bandit Queen was straight up 'offensive', 'vulgar', 'indecent' and almost laughed at the cinematic conservatism of the Indian censor board. The subject was such. Based on the life of Phoolan Devi, this Shekhar Kapur movie was banned due itsexplicit sexual content, nudity and abusive language, which the Censor Board could not (obviously) digest.

2. Kama Sutra: In a rather hypocritical move, Kama Sutra - A Tale Of Love too faced the wrath of Censor Board which termed it 'explicit', 'unethical' and 'immoral' for the audiences of the nation which came up with the concept of Kama Sutra! This Mira Nair movie, which depicted the lives of four lovers in the 16th century in India, was a hit with the critics but a major flop with the Censor Board and ultimately got banned. We did see it coming.

3. Unfreedom: The movie was blamed for 'igniting unnatural passions' as it was about a lesbian love story within an Islamic terrorism-related angle.

4. Sins: It is an erotic journey of a Kerala priest who falls for the charms of a woman and gets sexually involved with her. The film did not go down well with with the Catholics.

5. Paanch: Said to be Anurag Kashyap's first film, the movie faced lot of heat from Censor Board for excessive use of cuss words, drug abuse and octane violence.
