Hanste Ansu (1950) was the first Indian film to be awarded an Adults certification, following the amendment of the original Indian Cinematograph Act (1918) in December 1949. The reasons behind such certification were the film's double-meaning title (laughing tears), and its depiction of a modern age woman fighting for her rights, during the time when women were restricted to household chores, were expected to be completely submitted to their spouses, and had no freedom for education or were allowed to work outside. Many contemporary audience deemed the film's storyline bold and immoral.
