Nagarjuna's next release Office might be yet another film that might run into censor trouble
Ram Gopal Varma and Nagarjuna's 'Officer' Too Violent For Google, CBFC?

Ram Gopal Varma’s Nagarjuna-helmed actioner Officer  is  yet to get the censor nod although the film is just days away from release. Reason? The  violent content. Apparently there are scenes  of graphic violence  in  the  film  which have the  CBFC  flummoxed. Though Ramu is more than willing to take an ‘Adult’ certificate , the CBFC is yet in two  minds about letting some of the violence go scot-free.

And the CBFC  is not alone in its indignant  repudiation of  Ramu’s violent content. According to a reliable source, Google has  refused to upload many of Ramu’s clippings and  teasers  of Officer. This denial of  access to the alleged violence  on Officer  is specially alarming considering  the  graphic violence seen in the trailer of some recent Hollywood films like Lars Von Trier’s The House That Jack Built.”

When  quizzed Ramu doesn’t deny the violent  content in Officer. ‘It is a film about the violent society we  live in and one man’s struggle to  bring a semblance of sanity in the lives of common citizens. The  violence in Officer is  raw and real. You can’t show the reaction until you spotlight the action. The  violence here is  not gratuitous. It will make the audience uncomfortable, as any form of violence  is  supposed to.”
