Steamy 'Sin' upsets Catholics


By IndiaFM News Bureau, February 19th, 2005 - 1200 hrs IST

The Catholic community of Mumbai has condemned Vinod Pande's latest movie Sin. The film is being viewed as a sensationalized depiction of a Priest's romantic escapades. The Director claims that the story is true and is that of a Christian priest in Kerala. On the other hand, he says it is a fictional reconstruction and not targeted at any particular person. However, the All India Catholic Union is not buying these excuses and has issued a statement against the film stating that “this portrayal of an ordained priest in such light will hurt the sentiments of the Christian community, as there appears to be a fine dividing line between pornography, truth and fiction”.

The story line shows a priest having a sexual relationship with a lover half his age. The scenes are not that much of a worry to the community as much as the Priest with loose morals that is the central character of the film.
