Udta Punjab will finally get to fly high, minus one cut. But what’s one cut compared to 89? The whole country’s been tracking its censorship controversy from the time it made news and is now absolutely elated with the judgment.
Twitterverse, of course, immediately got busy tweeting its thoughts about it — essentially sarcasm and potshots at CBFC chief Pahlaj Nihalani- and PM Modi-packed — in 140 characters. Here’s how the country reacted to the Udta Punjab verdict.

High court is like Dettol which had killed 99.99% germs & the scene in which Tommy Sing was urinating is that 0.01% germ. #UdtaPunjabVerdict
