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 film.
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 Pithavinum 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.
