Panangattu Padai Katchi leader A Hari Nadar issued a statement against the movie and filed an online complaint against the filmmakers with the Tamil Nadu police on Friday.
Taking to his social media account, Nadar posted a strongly-worded statement, in which he said that the dialogues in Irandam Kuthu were laden with double meaning, including, the film’s title.
He accused the filmmakers and actors for having created the film just for money without taking into account about ruining the minds of youngsters and Tamil culture. “I request for the soon-to-be-released Irandam Kuththu to be immediately banned. I also request the police to take legal action and arrest the movie’s director Santhosh P Jayakumar as well as the actors and others involved with the film,” Nadar wrote.
Nadar referenced the Central Board of Film Certification which has clearly mentioned the rules and regulations on how a film should be made. He pointed out that Irandam Kuththu has violated these rules.
Earlier, Bharathiraja too had slammed the filmmakers and had said that cinema has been used to achieve huge feats including, breaking religious and caste barriers and empower women. He clarified that while cinema can talk about different cultures and ways of life, it cannot be a place for explicit content. “We should not permit films that spoil culture. Aren’t there enough rapes, child rapes that we have witnessed? People should realise these kinds of films only do bad to society,” he wrote.
Irandam Kuththu is the sequel to the 2018 film Iruttu Arayil Murattu Kuthu by Santhosh P Jayakumar. The sequel stars Santosh P Jayakumar, Daniel Annie Pope, Karishma Kaul, Akriti Singh and Motta Rajendran.
