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
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.
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
