Gangubai Kathiawadi

Gangubai Kathiawadi, the year’s as well as the season’s first blockbuster picture, is finally appearing on that big screen on Friday, February 25, 2022. On December 24, 2021, ’83 was indeed the final major picture to be released in theatres. The number of Covid-19 instances began to rise dramatically, and as a result, all films slated for release in the coming weeks were put back. Thankfully, the cases were promptly dismissed, as well as the individual states immediately moved to relax limitations. Badhaai Do, starring Rajkummar Rao and Bhumi Pednekar, was released in theatres two weeks ago. It was, unfortunately, a mid-budget picture, whereas Gangubai Kathiawadi is indeed a big-budget drama.

The Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC) approved Gangubai Kathiawadi on December 30, 2021, according to the Bollywood Society. The CBFC gave the picture a U/A rating after four adjustments were made by the filmmakers. The derogatory term’m*d’ was substituted with’madarjaat.’ Second, a 43-second conversation was cut from the video, as well as the images of India’s first Prime Minister, Jawaharlal Nehru, placing a rose on Gangubai’s shoulder were appropriately altered. Finally, a 17-second conversation and images were removed, and warnings were added in both English and Hindi, with each slide’s duration raised by 5 seconds.

The creators of Gangubai Kathiawadi were awarded the censor certificate after these alterations were made. However, on February 17, the producers addressed the CBFC again, this time requesting two voluntary changes. These, on the other hand, were in reference towards the additions as well as deletions made inside the ‘Thank You’ slate there at the start as well as the credits there at the conclusion. The final running time of the picture, as stated on the certificate following the February 17 changes, is 156 minutes and 51 seconds. Gangubai Kathiawadi, in other terms, is 2 hours, 36 minutes, and 51 seconds long.
