When War and Peace was completed in 2002, the Censor Board (CBFC) asked for 6 cuts. On appeal, the Revising Committee of the CBFC banned the film. A second Revising Committee reduced the ban to 21 cuts. An Appellate Tribunal then reduced the cuts to just 2. The matter went to court. The Bombay High Court finally cleared the film without any cuts. Today, several years later, the film is set to mark a rare moment when documentary films enter a world hitherto reserved for the commercial cinema.
