censar board

Noun.

Definition

A bunch of veteran filim personalities who form the jury to decide if a new movie is fit for the masses, the shadows or the dustbin. They are a fickle lot as their judgement is often impaired by having coffee with politicians, religious leaders and moral policemen and women. Many a filim producer has bled to bankruptcy over disputes with the board. The censar board will award certification such as A, U, R & U/A. Everyone in modern India may not agree with the "cuts" specially in Hollywood movies as the Bollywood counterparts can get away with worse and still come with with a "U"

Usage

Poor kamalakasan.. His latest filim was banned by the censar board and he has been fighting it out in the courts. He has said he may leave the country as soon as he can pay for his flight tickets. Hey Ram! Why can't this censar board go jump!

phrase used in the 80s to check on the quality of VHS Cassette tapes. In India, it was common place to rent a VCP/R over the holidays and watch movies non-stop until your eyes turned blue. Movies also had to be rented and the one question that must be asked is about the "print".

Usage

Overheard at the Video Parlour: Machan, don't take any of the Rajni movies da. The print will be very bad. Uncle, you have Basic Instinct? Original print?

Definition

As movies became available in VHS format and then in VCD and now the wothla DVDs, the latest movies that are released in the theatres will be available in the black market (dimly lit pavement shops and in certain video parlours). However, these will be recorded in the theatre with a video camera and copies made. So you will typically get very poor quality video and audio and also enjoy all the conversations around as well as silhouettes of people walking in front of the camera.

Usage

Uncle do you have the latest batman movie? Last week I came and you said you had only screen print.
Video parlour uncle: No Minkey, still the original print is not released, try on Friday. If you want to try screen print, I'll give you discount.
