Sins is a 2005 Indian film, directed and produced by Vinod Pande.
The film has a few controversial topless scenes, as a result of which it received an A certificate from the censor board of India. The film depicting a Catholic priest romantically involved with a young woman, was protested against by those that felt it was a negative portrayal of Catholicism and indecent. Catholic Secular Forum filed a public interest litigation to stall its release but the court cleared the film.
The film is based on a news story that Pande read in 1988 about a Kerala priest sentenced to death on sexual harassment and murder charges.
The film depicts the unconventional passionate affair of a young girl with an older priest. Deciding to keep their love story confidential, things however take such a twist that their love story takes a perpetual transformation into a story marked by jealousy, hatred and treachery.
