The much-hyped Malayalam movie Vedivazhipadu, which was earlier slated to get a November release, has landed in trouble after the Censor Board rejected the movie for censorship. According to the board, the movie has elements which may hurt the religious feelings of people.
The movie was all decided to get released next week. Now, this decision by the board has put the movie into a great trouble. Earlier, Blessy directed movie Kalimannu had faced a similar situation before getting censored. But, after watching the film, the board granted them the certificate claiming that the movie is watchable for people above the age of 12. Pappilo Buddha too faced a similar crisis.
Vedivazhipadu tells the story that happens in the city of Thiruvananthapuram in 24 hours, from 3 pm to 3 pm (next day). The story is being told in the backdrop of the famous Aattukal Pongala. The director has used a simple, straight forward and linear narrative as he thinks that an interesting incident can make a good film.
Another highlight of the movie is that, Vedivazhipadu has no songs in it. The movie is directed by Shambhu Purushothaman. Indrajith, Murali Gopy, Mythili and Anusree play lead roles in this movie. Arun Kumar Aravind, director of One By Two is the producer of the movie. Other cast include Saiju Kurup, Anumol and Sreejith Ravi. The movie is produced under the banner of Karmayug Movies.
