The controversies regarding Mohanlal starrer Drishyam has come to an end.The court dismissed director Satish Paul's allegations over Drishyam story and has issued an order stating that Drishyam is not copied; but an original script.
Director Satish Paul, who has directed some movies, including Jayaram-Indrajith starrer Finger Print. The director alleged that Drishyam is copied from his novel Oru Mazhakkalathu.
The director filed a petition at Ernakulam district court, stating the same. The court has issued a stay order against the Tamil remake of Drishyam, which is titled as Papanasam thus stopping the filming of the movie for some days.
Jeethu Joseph, the director of Drishyam, has submitted the DTP copy and mails of the script of the movie, which was published in 2011. But, Satish Paul completed his novel in 2013. This was the major evidence against Satish Paul's allegations.
Director Jeethu Joseph, who is on a high with the court verdict favouring Drishyam, says that it is the victory of truth. He is planning to file a defamation case against Satish Paul, on the grounds of false allegations.
Papanasam, the Tamil remake of Drishyam which stars Kamal Haasan in the lead role, will hit the theatres soon. The movie is all set to be remade into Bollywood with Ajay Devgan reprising the central character played by Mohanlal in the original.
