Satyadeepam editor Fr. Mathew Kilukkan responds to the Nadirshah film Eesho controversy. His response was about how people can talk so authentically about a film that has not been released. He added that what people need fear is not the film, but the amendment of the law issued by the Central Government. He responded to The Cue that Nadirshah does not have to worry about this other than the censoring of films by the central government.
Fr. Mathew Kilukkan’s words:
“What is happening now is not a response to the news or the facts. The reaction is going on over and over again. How can people talk so authentically about an unreleased movie?
Nadirsha said that there is nothing to be worried about. Even so, he is not obliged to say anything.
We should not be afraid of the protests of many fathers. What we need to worry about is the amendments to the law issued by the Central Government. The Censor Board has come up with a law to re-cut and edit even released movies. We should be really scared.
A good movie is not going to come out here from tomorrow. Can we make a historical film from now on? Where is the film Variyamkunnan? We should realize how bad is our cultural environment. I am with you.”
Earlier, Catholic Congress has demanded that the government ban Nadirshah’s new films. The Catholic Congress has argued that Nadirshah’s both the films Eesho, and Keshu Ee Veedinte Nadhan are an attempt to downgrade Cristian beliefs.
Variyamkunnan is an upcoming historical film by Ashiq Abu. Prithviraj plays the lead role in the film. Viewers are waiting for the makers to release updates of the film.
