HC notice on plea against Aami

The Kerala High Court on Wednesday issued notice to the Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC) on a writ petition seeking to restrain the board from issuing certificate for Malayalam film, Aami, directed by Kamal.

The petition was filed by K.P. Ramachandran, a Kochi-based lawyer. He alleged that the film was made omitting the real-life incidents of Kamala Surayya, alias Madhavikutty, with a view to justifying “love jihad”. There was an ulterior motive behind the very purpose of making such a film based on religious conversion theme.

According to the petitioner Kamal had no right to rewrite the history and the real incidents that happened in the life of Madhavikutty and twist her past according to his own whims and fancies in the name of freedom of expression. The wrong and contradictory picturisation of Madhavikutty’s life and justifying the forceful religious conversion at this juncture would certainly send a wrong message to the audience, he said.
