Now, call for ban on Mani Ratnam's Kadal; Will it be another Vishwaroopam?
Tamil Nadu cinema goers have just now witnessed a darkest episode in the history of Kollywood with Kamal Hassan's mega-project Vishwaroopam. The film that released in many other parts of the country without any hurdle was infamously banned by the state government. Bowing down to the threats of several Muslim groups, the Tamil Nadu government took a bold decision to ban the film before brokering peace between the makers of the film and the community members. Now, yet another big project, which, luckily, did not land in any community trouble before its release, has fallen into the same trouble!

Well, Mani Ratnam's recently released Kadal has come under scanner from a few Christian communities. Of all, India Chirstisthuva Jananayaga Katchi has demonstrated protest against the film claiming that the film depicts the community in "bad taste". The organisaton members have met Chennai Commissioner and requested him to ban Kadal from screening.

Interestingly, they have said that seven scenes, the same number of scenes objected by Muslim communities in Vishwaroopam, in the movie have hurt the sentiment of the Christians and they want it to be deleted immediately. It has also blamed the Regional Censor Board for certifying the film and without raising objections to those scenes.

Kadal is set in a Christian fishing territory. The main characters in the film are drawn from Jesus and Satan that will represent good and evil in the film. The major part of the film talks about regaining belief in the god.

However, now, all eyes are set on the state government whether it could come hard against Kadal too.
