Theatres in Tamil Nadu unlikely to screen controversial ‘Madras Cafe’

[TamilNet, Thursday, 22 August 2013, 23:32 GMT]
The screening of contraversial film ‘Madras Cafe’, which has been declared as ‘anti-Tamil’ film by Tamil activists in Tamil Nadu, is facing protests across Tamil Nadu State and in Mumbai, Indian media reports said Thursday on the eve of the release of the film adding that the theatres in Tamil Nadu are unlikely to screen the film as the Theatre Owners' Association had left the decision of screening the film to individual theatre owners. In the guise of a fiction story and dubbed a thriller, the film portrays the Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam as terrorists, the Tamil activists opposing the screening of the film said.

"The film shows the LTTE as a terror group and there is not a single frame showing the atrocities of the Lankan army,” RK Selvamani, a popular film director from Tamil Nadu was quoted as saying by the NDTV.

Cineworld is set to show the Hindi version of the film at its venues though the Tamil version has been cancelled, news sources in London told TamilNet.
