Meanwhile legendary filmmaker Bharati Raja who directed Rajinikanth and Kamal Haasan in his filmmaking career which spanned over 4 decades, released a press note condemning the film’s content. The filmmaker believed that cinema has made many revolutions such as Caste and religious abolition, Women empowerment, Youth empowerment 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.
