Babu Ram Ishara

Hindi director born in Una, Himachal Pradesh, as Roshanlal Sharma. Went to Bombay aged 16 to enter the film industry. Late 60s scenarist and dialogue writer in Hindi for Dulal Guha, B.K. Adarsh, etc. Early 70s films (Chetna, Charitra) sparked major censorship debates over nudity and ‘ artistic licence’ of exploitation cineastes, particularly because of their art-house claims (cf. New Indian Cinema). His work indirectly led to the governmental guidelines addressed to the Censor Board (1979) directing the deletion of ‘ scenes which have the effect of justifying or glorifying drinking [and of] vulgarity, obscenity and depravity’. Prolific scenarist; also wrote his own films.
