Actor Kunchacko Boban rubbished the criticism against his latest movie ‘Nna Thaan Case Kodu’. A poster of the movie which was released on Thursday triggered a controversy for portraying potholes on Kerala roads. The makers of the film released this poster when the state government has been facing flak over the potholes on the road. The trailer of the movie also highlighted the potholes on the roads in Kerala.

“ There are potholes on road. But please come to theatres,” reads the caption on the poster of the movie. As this slogan triggered a controversy, CPM’s social media pages and pro-left people’s social media pages started a hate campaign against the movie. It is learnt that pro-left netizens have been urging the public to boycott the movie.

Reacting to this row, Kunchako Boban stated that the decision to watch or boycott the movie depends on individuals. People who watch the movie will realize the message we want to communicate with this film. We conceived the idea of the movie many years ago. The writer’s foresight highlighted pothole issue which is a major issue in present Kerala,” said the actor.

“This is a courtroom drama. We didn’t intend to insult any particular political group. The movie is a satire on the issues faced by the public for a long time. Political parties who were in power in Kerala are also seen in the movie,” he added.
