The movie Pithavnum Puthranum Parishudhatmavinum lands in trouble. Directed by Deepesh, the movie failed to get green signal from the Censor Board Of Film Certification (CBFC). The movie has been refused the certification as it is likely to have contents which might hurt the feelings of a particular religion.
Shaji M Karun, a member of the CBFC, commented that there were
some scenes in the movie which needed more clarification. But the
director of the movie was not present at the time of screening, to
clear their doubts. So, they had no other option, but to reject the
Deepesh, the director of the movie claimed that he was not
informed about the screening by anyone. He complained that the
board usually inform the producers, but he was not informed by
anyone. Adding on, he said that the CBFC had denied clearance to
the film on the basis of a complaint that the film portrays
existential issues of nuns in a wrong manner. But he says he had
tried to interpret human life in his film.
Now the director has approached the Film Certification Appellate
Tribunal (FCAT), New Delhi, to get permission for screening. Hope
Puthranum Parishudhatmavinum get the fruit of their hard
work from FCAT.
The cast of the movie includes director VK Prakash, who plays
the role of a priest, Dhwani is seen as Sister Elcitta and Rajshri
Ponnappa as Sister Jessita.
