Well played, Team Angry Indian Goddesses .
HuffPost India had previously written about how the recently-released film, starring an ensemble cast of seven actresses, had faced the wrath of the Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC, commonly known as the Censor Board). In this writer's review of the film, we'd mentioned that the censor-cleared version of the film — featuring plenty of muted words and blurred out images of Hindu goddesses — was "an absolute travesty".

On Monday evening, the Angry Indian Goddesses team posted a video to their Facebook page that features some of the weirdest scenes that have been mutilated by the censors (over and above all the scenes with any profanity, of course). The things that raised the CBFC's hackles include the words 'lunch', 'Indian figure', and 'sarkar' (government). The tone of the video is determinedly tongue-in-cheek; it uses ironic background music and graphics to convey the ridiculousness of the situation.
