When things were not that controversial back in the 70's and 80’s Era

Tandav has been at the receiving end of many complaints and trolling since its release on January 15. Tandav has been accused of hurting religious sentiments of a section of the audience. As we keep reading about these controversies about movies and series landing in religious controversies every now and then, it makes me think, does the makers these days concentrate more on, which caste or religion to show on screen. Don’t you feel things were different in 70’s and 80’s era, where things were not this way, where the lead character was ‘casteless’, both in imagery and in dialogues. Caste-agnostic stories and plot lines were a default feature of that era, at least in Amitabh Bachchan’s movies. But if 'Desh Premee' was made today, Dinanath would probably become Master Dinanath Tripathi, and his dialogues, too, would demonstrate that he belong from some specific religion or caste or faith. It’s not like there was nothing to complain about in the Hindi cinema of the 1970 and 80s but it used to not land up in controversies because of hurting somebody's religious sentiments. What’s your take on this ?
