It has been a controversy-ridden 2005 for Bollywood so far.

In the first five months, no less than 10 films have been embroiled in controversies, faced litigations and been the target of public protests.

Interestingly, apart from two, all the films performed badly at the box-office.

rediff.com takes stock:

Rog

The plot: A police officer (Irrfan) falls in love with a dead woman (Ilene Hamann), while investigating her murder.

The controversy: The Mumbai police found the posters of Rog too revealing and Hamann, the South African model who is the heroine of the film, too scantily dressed. The police summoned the producer of the film, Pooja Bhatt, and asked her to remove the posters.
