In Depth Vishwaroopam Ban CM J Jayalalithaa explained state government view

In Depth Vishwaroopam Ban CM J Jayalalithaa explained state government view

India is not a democratic nation, if someone got the power of danda that is stick law bends before him.

If someone does not have danda, stick then he is powerless man, he is mango man, and he is an Aam Aadami.

Movie Ban is very common in India, Censor Board has no value and no respect in India, Once a movie is passed by Censor Board after that Producer of the movie needs to take the permission of religion organizations or political organizations of India, after that in a democratic nation just they suggest the cuts, producer has to accept the cuts and only then movie gets released otherwise no one can release the movie,

Reason = those organization got the power of danda that is stick , they got power to destroy government property and beat the common citizens and state government cannot protect Indian citizens, cannot protect the freedom of right to expression of common citizen as Common Citizen is law abiding in India and he fears everyone.

Today Tamil Nadu Chief Minister J Jayalalithaa explained the state government position regarding movie Vishwaroopam

She defended a ban on Kamal Haasan's film Vishwaroopam.

It is expected that if Kamal Hasan cuts few shots from his movie then Muslim organizations may allow the release of the movie.

CM J Jayalalithaa told to media that the two-week ban was not intended to curb the actor's freedom of expression or free speech, but was necessary to maintain law and order after Muslim groups who had objected to the film warned that they would protest outside cinemas where the movie was screening.

As the Chief Minister of Tamilnadu, my first priority is maintenance of law and order and ensure public peace.

Various Muslim organizations had submitted memorandum to the government and met the Home Secretary and demanded a ban on Vishwaroopam.

They had also announced various demonstrations and there was apprehension that these protests could turn violent.
When Intelligence reports were received on possibility of violence, it would have been difficult to provide security to 524 theatres.

Actual strength of Tamil Nadu police is 91,000.

If you deduct personnel required for special unit, we have 87,000 police personnel for a population of over seven crore.

If intelligence tell us that there is likely to be trouble, government would take preventive action.

The strength required for one theatre for three shifts is 60.

Therefore, the manpower required for 524 is 31440.

In addition, there has to be patrolling that would require another 11,000 police personnel.

In sensitive areas, we need additional pickets and need a striking force ready in each district.

So all in all, if Vishwaroopam was released, the total manpower required would be 56440.

However, there are just over 9000 personnel available.

To say that there was a demand that the film should have been sold to Jaya TV is a wild reckless charge against the constitutional authority and we will take legal action.

State government has full powers to ban a movie.
If I really wanted a ban, we could have it banned straightaway.
We did not do that. Hence, it proves that this is not political vendetta.

She told to media that movie was banned under CRPC section 144.

The reason why we did it under sec 144 is that tempers should cool down and both sides can come to an agreement.

Mr. Kamal Haasan avoided showing the movie to the Muslim representatives.

Almost a month went by and there was again a delay in the release due to problems with theatre owners.

At the last moment on January 21, he showed movie to Muslim representatives and on 22nd, they decided that they did not want the movie released.

There were several violent incidents in Karnataka and Andhra Pradesh.

The film is banned in Singapore, Malaysia, Sri Lanka, Qatar, and UAE.
Am I responsible for it?
In Andhra, there is a Congress government,
In Karnataka a BJP government –
It is ridiculous to blame me for whatever has transpired.

We have no intention of curbing freedom of speech or harming Kamal Haasan.

Kamal Haasan has taken a calculated risk in making the movie, pledging all his property. How can the government be responsible?

Know and Understand How Tamilnadu Government or CM J Jayalalithaa can ban the movie

Tamil Nadu Cinemas (Regulation) Act, 1955 gave the state government the powers to ban the movie.

If you remember movie Dam999 was banned by state government under this law section 7[1].

Section 7 [1]  - Power of government or District Collector to suspend exhibition of films in certain cases

(1)  The Government in respect of the whole of the State or any part thereof, and the District Collector within  his jurisdiction may, if they or he are or is of opinion that any film which is being or is about to be publicly  exhibited is likely to cause a breach  of  the  peace,  by  order,  suspend the exhibition of the film  and during such suspension, no  person shall exhibit such film or permit it to be exhibited  in any place in the State or any part or district thereof, as the case may be.

Movie Story Line Plot of  Movie Vishwaroopam

Vishwaroopam is a Indian Tamil spy thriller film written, directed, and co-produced by Kamal Haasan who is also enacts the lead role

Budget of the movie INR95 crore (US$17.29 million)

An Afghani Al-Qaeda Jihadi Omar (Rahul Bose), his accomplice Salim (Jaideep Ahlawat) and their international terror network, plots to attack New York with a "Cesium-bomb". Vishwanath alias Wiz (Kamal Haasan) is a Kathak teacher who lives with his wife Nirupama (Pooja Kumar), a nuclear oncologist, in New York. Nirupama confides with a psychologist that it’s a marriage of convenience that provided her a safe haven for pursuing her Ph.D in the U.S.

 The age gap between them notwithstanding, she is put off by Vishwanath’s effeminate traits and is attracted to her boss, Deepak (Samrat Chakrabarti). Doubting whether her husband has secrets of his own, She hires a private investigator to trail him.

She learns from the private investigator that Vishwanath is not a Hindu but a Muslim. In a sudden turn of events, the investigator gets killed by a member of the terrorist outfit led by Omar.

A business card on his wallet gives away Nirupama and the terror group nabs the couple. The outfit operates from a warehouse on the outskirts of the city where the couple is being interrogated.

Vishwanath is involved in a fight with the terrorists at the warehouse and escapes with Nirupama. Omar and Vishwanath have a past, one that takes the story back by almost a decade, to the Al-Qaeda training camps in Afghanistan.

What follows is a maze of events that go back and forth in time, unraveling a plot where in the terrorists are accumulating cesium from oncology devices to trigger a blast in New York.

Nirupama is stunned to discover the true identity of her husband Vishwanath, his uncle (Shekhar Kapur), American accomplice Dawkins (Miles Anderson) and the young dancer Ashmita (Andrea Jeremiah) at her husband’s dance school. Vishwanath is revealed to be a RAW agent who married Nirupama to investigate Deepak and his boss Omar in connection with a bomb blast in the heart of New York. His mission is to bust the ‘sleeper-cell’ of the Jihadis in the US, which is planning to divert the attention through "capsules" capable of emitting mild nuclear radiation tied to pigeons in New York city while enabling Black (James Babson) to detonate the cesium bomb in the city.

Together, the team try to counter the plans of Omar and his group that could destroy the most of the New York city. In the ensuing events, Vishwanath is arrested by the FBI before being rescued by his uncle and Dawkins is murdered by Salim. Whether Vishwanath along with the FBI were able to stop the calamity to be unfolded forms the rest of the story.

Thanks for putting forward the views of the state govt. There seems to be some valid points. Will we ever know what is going on behind the screens? Frankly I don't trust either side and I will not watch this movie anytime soon.
