Among the many ways the Censor Board (CBFC) butchered Pan Nalin’s film Angry Indian Goddesses, this one was priceless. They had objection to the entire opening credits of the film. For us, a good opening title sequence is a thing of beauty. And lot of effort goes into making it. How to explain it to the board which believes that any reference to Gods should be wiped out. The makers had no option but to blur all the Gods in the entire film and the opening title sequence. So if you saw the film in the theatres, all you saw was the credits with a completely blur background.

Anyway, here’s the good news. The opening credit which was blurred is now online. Also, Art Of The Title site, which is great resource for title sequences of films/tv show, has featured it in their Top 10 title sequences of the year.
