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.
