Two separate cases are filed against the recently released blockbuster movie Paruthi Veeran, which has been produced and directed by Ameer. According to the story, the father of the hero belongs to Devar community who married a Dalith (Malai Kurava) lady. Due to this marriage, all his relatives turn against him. Many years after this, his son, the hero falls in love with his aunt's daughter. This creates many problems between the two families and even between the two communities.
The organizer of Malai Kuravar Makkal Munnani, Ramasami filed a case on the grounds that the film would lead to communal clashes and unnecessary misunderstandings between the communities. He asked for a ban on the film till a few scenes that hurt people's sentiments are cut. Another case has already been filed by the relatives of Paruthy Veeran, a real character hailing from Madurai District. The court has sent notices to Ameer and actor Siva Kumar to attend the court for further proceedings.
