The regional Central Board of Film Certification in Thiruvananthapuram had earlier asked the makers to rename the movie as it was apparently hurting the religious sentiments of many over the usage of the word 'sexy' before the name of 'Goddess Durga' though the film has nothing to do with the deity. Following this, the makers changed the film's title to Sxxx Durga commenting no one can censor their imaginations.

What is Sxxx Durga movie about?

Sxxx Durga narrates the story of a north Indian Durga and a Keralite Kabeer, who run away on a midnight. Two smalltime gangsters, transporting arms, offer to help them to catch the train to move to a distant place. The unfortunate events that follow form the gist of the movie.

Sxxx Durga was shot entirely during the night without any screenplay or a written story. Rajshri Deshpande and Kannan Nayar appear in main roles in the Malayalam movie, which shows the patriarchal society of Kerala.

This is what National Award winning Film Maker Bhaskar Hazarika has to say about the film - "Sexy Durga will hit home with any woman who happens to be caught out at night in one of our benighted cities. A dark and tense trip, the film very effectively communicates the constant threat of random acts of sexual violence that has made India notorious around the world. Apart from its searing content, the experiments with structure and camerawork, as also the performances and lit af death metal soundtrack, are some other reasons why you should find a way to watch this film, despite the government's best efforts to gag it."
Get a pass, watch Sexy Durga, support Indie film movement.

I stand with Sanal Kumar sasidharan(Sexy Durga) and Ravi Jadhav (Nude)..
Who are they to decide what we should see? If they don't show it in Iffi we will make sure that it is shown in every nook and corner of India

Geetu Mohan Das

I woke up late to this appalling news that two wonderful films- Sexy Durga and Nude has been arbitrarily removed even after its official selection in the Panorama list. Where is our freedom of expression as film makers? It is our freedom to hold opinions and express our art form without interference. It is up to the audience to decide if they choose to watch it. Not by a group who wants to dictate our terms and conditions. This is a shame and an insult to all the creative minds of this country. Wake up and speak up fraternity. Or wait till your film is silenced. #thisisnotdone
