Film about Marina protests finally gets censor certificate

Filmmaker MS Raj Finally Got To Get His Film Marina Puratchi , Who Talks About The 2016 Jallikattu Protests, Certified By The Censor Board Of Film Certification (CBFC). After The Censor Board Refused To Certify The Film, The Filmmaker Had Asked The Court For Help.

" I Only Approached The Court After Both The Examination Committee And The First Review Committee Of The CBFC Refused To Certify My Film. They Wanted Me To Screen The Film For The Second Review Committee, But Because I Was Not Satisfied With Their Explanation Of The Problems Those They Had With My Film, I Chose To Go To Court, The Honorable Judge Heard The Case On January 7 And Ordered The CBFC To Respond Within Seven Days While Trying To Release The Film During Pongal. Review Committee, Head Of Actress Jeevitha, Saw The Film On January 14 And Agreed To Confirm My Film," Informs Raj, Who Also Organized Special Shows Of The Film In 11 Countries.

The Film Has Now Been Granted A U Certificate And The Director Says That One Of The Major Objection Raised By The Censor Board Was His Name Of The Animal Welfare Group People For Ethical Treatment Of Animals (PETA). “They Wanted Me To Mute Mentions Or PETA, But I Refused Because PETA Had A Huge Role In Getting Jallikattu Banned. They Have Now Let Me Mention The Organization By Name, ”he Says. In October 2018, PETA Had Sent A Legal Notice To The Director, Claiming That He Was Leveling Baseless Allegations Against Them. Raj Says He Has Responded To The Legal Notice, And Has Not Heard From Them After That.

However, The Director Reveals That He Has Agreed To Mutations Of Central Government." I Wanted To Show How The Central Government Looked At The Issue, But Following Objections By The Censor Board, I Gave In To The Revising Committee's Suggestion Because I Wanted My Movie To See The Light Of The Day," Explains Raj, Who Is Now Planning To Release The Film By The End Of This Month.
