Thiruvananthapuram: Soon after the release of its trailer, it was rumoured that the movie Left Right Left would be a take on leftist political party, but director Arun Kumar Aravind had denied the claims. With the movie hit the screens on June 15, it is facing the wrath of the men from Communist party, who claim that the film shows the party and its leaders in a bad light and that it stereotypes minorities.
But Murali Gopy, who has penned the script for Left Right Left, has refuted these claims. "The film is about intense and unpleasant childhood experiences shaping the lives of three people, and how it affect them in adulthood. There is no endorsement or denouncement of any political party in this film and it's a purely objective story. The makers' point of view is just that of a witness," TOI quotes Murali as saying.
Arun Kumar Aravind, whose film Ee Adutha Kalathu was accused of having RSS allegiances, has defended Murali's stand. He says that the title Left Right Left refers only to the rhythm of a march and has no political agenda behind it. He adds that one of the three main characters in the film is a politician and it is just a part of the film. But it does not intend to defame any political party.
