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
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
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.
