Parvathy Thiruvothu's film, Varthamanam is going to release on March 12. It will arrive at 300 cinema halls across India. Earlier, the movie ran into trouble as the regional Censor Board of Film Certification (CBFC) in Kerala refused to give it clearance. It was sent to the Central Censor Board. The writer of Varthamanam is Congress politician Aryadan Shoukath. It is directed by Sidhartha Siva. The fim deals with the struggle of a Muslim woman from Kerala who enrols in a Delhi University to research on the life of freedom fighter, Mohammed Abdu Rahiman. The film is set against the backdrop of what is happening in the nation. As we know, many intellectuals feel that India is losing its secular fabric. The movie talks about how students with varied political ideologies come together to convey the message of secularism.
Sources told The News Minute that two members of CBFC Kerala had rejected the film as it was against right wing politics. It seems one of the them was reportedly BJP leader Sandeep Kumar. He had apparently called the film, anti-national. Aryadan Shoukath and Benzy Nassar are also the makers of Varthamanam. This is not unusual. We have seen that Tandav that was also based against what happened in JNU ran into trouble with various parties.
Parvathy also announced Puzhu yesterday. In the film, she will work with Mammootty. It will be directed by Ratheena Sharshad. This is the first time that Mammootty and Parvathy are coming together for a movie. Fans will remember that there was a controversy during the film, Kasaba where the actress got trolled for her comments on the movie. It stopped after Mammootty launched the music of Uyare.
