On Wednesday, makers of “Irandam Kuthu” released the teaser of the film which had double meaning dialogues and visuals containing graphic contents. The 97 seconds long video showed clips such as the leads masturbating, an artificial human penis, woman showing obscene hand gestures etc.

In the press note, Bharathi Raja said that it feels painful for him to see people destroying the art form in the name of doing “business”. “Yes, cinema is a business too. But using “banana” in a cheap way to promote the film among public makes me upset. Is this why legends configured Cinema ?” Raja asked.

“Cinema can reflect real life. They can show such things in a semiotic way. But keeping the bedroom for public’s views is not a right way to do it. I am not a person who whines about “culture”. But I want my home to be disciplined” he said in his press note.

“I couldn’t bear seeing the advertisements for the film “Irandam Kuthu”” said Bharati Raja who questioned whether there is no women in the families of those people who made this film. “Don’t the women in their families condemn these activities of them ? No matter if they condemn or not, as a senior person of this industry, I would condemn these kind of activities. I request government and censor board to take strict actions against these kind of films.” he said.

The filmmaker further accused that these kind of films are influencing crimes against women and children and requested people to realize it.

Now, replying to his accusation, Santhosh came up with a reply tweet countering the senior filmmaker. He uploaded a posted of 1981 flick “Tik Tik Tik” and questioned. “With all due respect to him. Tik Tik Tik movie in 1981 la idha paathu koosadha kannu, ippo koosirucho…?” Santhosh’s tweet read.
