A petition filed against Dileep starrer ‘Kammara Sambhavam’ at High Court
Dileep starred ‘Kammara Sambhavam’ has met with a legal tangle, as a petition has been filed at Kerala High Court, seeking to stop the screening of the movie. The petition filed by two ‘All India Forward Block’ party members – G Devarajan and Ram Mohan, stated that the film has tweaked the history. Both are respectively the National Secretary and State General Secretary of ‘All Indian Forward Block’. The case filed by the duo, has placed the key members of ‘Kammara Sambhavam’ in the opposite side. This includes producer Gokulam Gopalan, director Rathish Ambat, script writer Murali Gopy and hero Dileep.
The major accusation, which they have raised against the movie, was that of mimicking historical facts and figures. The movie, in its second half, portrayed the character of Kammaran receiving instructions from Subhash Chandra Bose for establishing the ‘All India Forward Block’ party. The movie has also used a flag, similar to that of ‘All India Forward Block’ party’s. Earlier, the party leaders had suggested of moving ahead with legal actions against the makers of ‘Kammara Sambhavam’, during one such a press meet organized in Kollam. Besides Dileep, the movie starred Siddharth, Namitha Pramod, Bobby Simha and to name a number of known faces.
However, it has to be seen how the case would progress at the HC. Both the halves of the movie had entirely different concepts – while the first half narrated the life of the fictional character Kammaran as a normal man without any glitz, the latter half had portrayed Kammaran as a larger than life figure. During the movie, makers had admitted of portraying the life of Kammaran in the point of view of historians, who tweak history for establishing some vested interests. Since the second movie of Dileep after ‘Ramaleela’, ‘Kammara Sambhavam’ was looked after by the industry with much an interest. subsequently, it has gone onto record one of the biggest openings of a Malayalam movie this year.
