Petition in HC against movie Aami
Kochi: A petition has been filed in the Kerala High Court alleging that Kamal-directed Malayalam film "Aami" based on the life of writer late Madhavikutty is distorting facts.
In his petition, lawyer K P Ramachandran sought a direction to the Censor Board to ensure that the upcoming movie would be certified only after making sure that it picturised the real life of Madhavikutty.
The film (Aami) was directed by omitting the real life incidents of Madhavikutty, the petition said.
The petitioner also alleged that the movie was made to re-write the history and twist the narrative according to the director's whims and fancies under the guise of freedom of expression.
Even if "Aami" is exhibited in cinema theatres, the wrong and contradictory picturisation of Madhavikutty would certainly inject a wrong message into the minds of audiences, he added.
Aami" is based on the autobiography of Kamala Surayya, Ente Katha (My Story). She wrote under a pseudonym Kamala Das in English.
