Director Sanjay Puran Singh Chauhan’s Film Stirs Controversy with Religious Themes
The film “72 Hurain” found itself embroiled in controversies even before its release in cinemas. The film was originally produced in 2019, and director Sanjay Puran Singh Chauhan had even won a national award for his direction. However, it was not released at that time. Finally, in 2023, the film has secured its place in theaters. It raises the question of whether changes in audience mentality and their preferences for certain content have influenced the decision to release it now.
Furthermore, judging by the title of the film, it is evident that it touches upon religious subjects. However, can the film be labeled as a work of propaganda? Let’s delve into this question in-depth. The film’s trailer did not receive certification from the Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC), so most of us have not seen it. This allows us to view the film with a clean perspective, except for the fact that the title has sparked controversy and hurt religious sentiments. However, the film itself raises the question of whether an act of terrorism can truly lead to paradise.

One commendable aspect of the film is that it does not directly challenge the notion that serving the Almighty rewards 72 virgins. Instead, it raises the question of whether an act that causes harm or can be labeled as “terrorism” can genuinely serve the highest power. Therefore, “72 Hurain” is about the brainwashing techniques used by a particular community and how they manipulate innocent minds.
The film portrays a balanced touch, showing that it goes beyond the suffering caused by terrorist attacks. It actually presents victims in the same light as perpetrators, which may prevent it from becoming a form of propaganda.
Otherwise, the film is quite straightforward. Yes, it requires a trigger warning as it showcases the aftermath of a terrorist attack in intricate detail, which many people may find hard to digest. Hence, it is advisable to keep away from consumption while watching the film. It is not recommended at all for sensitive viewers.
Director Sanjay Puran Singh Chauhan not only depicts the despair and lasting impact that survivors of an attack may experience but also enhances the effect by placing his central characters in situations that will even force you to laugh.
