The makers of Metro had to undergo a lot of hardships to get the film released in theatres by June, because of its raw and authentic portrayal of chain-snatching crime, and now it’s facing censor issues for its television premiere. Directed by Anandakrishnan, the film has Shirish, Bobby Simha and Sentrayan in pivotal roles. The film was initially denied certification for extreme violent content. However, it was given ‘A’ certificate without any cuts. Sources said, “Despite everyone’s appreciation, the film is facing the same problem. It was refused by the same officer, who said ‘no’ for the theatrical release.”

Interestingly, in August, there was news that a criminal had been arrested as he was into chain snatching after ‘being inspired by the film’. It was said that he downloaded a copy of the movie on his mobile and watched it repeatedly.  When contacted, Shirish told CE, “The agenda of this movie was to highlight that these problems, which can’t be eradicated, exist in the society so that the common men can be more careful. The film doesn’t encourage criminals in any way.”
