Film on Jallikattu protest goes to revising committee for certification
Marina Puratchi, produced by Naatchiyaaal films, is directed by filmmaker Pandiraj's former associate, MS Raj
Marina Puratchi, a film based on the protests against the ban over Jallikattu, has been referred by the Central Board of Film Certification to the revising committee comprising a ten-member team for undisclosed reasons.
The film, produced by Naatchiyaaal films, is directed by filmmaker Pandiraj's former associate, MS Raj. The director says it's a film that traces the politics behind the ban of Jallikattu in detail. "I've done extensive research for this film, and as a team, we've tried really hard to reveal the hidden truths behind this protest."
He goes on to address the issue about the pending censor certification of the film: "We applied for the certification on September 30. The censor committee saw our film and sent us an email on Wednesday, which read, 'Your film has been directed to the revising committee as directed by the chairperson.' They hadn't mentioned the exact reason behind their recommendation to the revising committee. I am a citizen who has complete faith in the law, so I applied to the revising committee at once. I believe that our film will get justice there because Marina Puratchi is not fiction; it is a real-life incident that drew the attention of the entire world towards us. We are yet to receive a date of certification from the committee."
According to reliable sources, the film has been sent to the revising committee, as it identifies real-life personalities like a former central minister, a famous female actor, a member of parliament, and a central minister, as the reasons behind the ban of Jallikattu.
