why is the govt afraid.. and what is banning going to achieve

We don't know the upshot of youths watching these films. The films may tell stories of facts and messages,but they may enrage young minds. Common man's calm will fall in atrocities.The govt. may be afraid of that situation. Before completing the comment I clicked publish.So only deletion.

Thank you for the info.
