    When Saif tries to remove the bomb from the bottom of that moving Audi TT, spotted a white/silver Linea many a times behind the Audi. That part of film was shot in Turkey, perhaps that is the reason to spot Linea so many times :)

    Today, read a convincing editorial from The Hindu on the ban on this movie.

    Quash the ban, screen the film
    29 January 2013

    The delay in overturning the unjustifiable ban on Kamal Haasan’s Vishwaroopam is beginning to appear every bit as unjustifiable. It is difficult to fathom the rationale behind the Madras High Court deferring its decision on the film’s screening. Earlier, the court had ruled the film cannot be shown in Tamil Nadu until January 28, by which time the judge hearing the case would see it for himself. Now that the special screening has been held, what basis can there possibly be for deferring the decision once again and asking Kamal Haasan to “negotiate the matter and sort the issue out amicably”? Courts exist principally to dispense justice, not to hand out advice which, in this case, seems entirely gratuitous. Of course, there have been occasions when the judiciary has adopted a pragmatic, even reconciliatory, approach, one that attempts to find a common ground between adversarial parties; the gulf between formalism and actual judicial practice is a little wider than most people assume. But in this case, the court has not even attempted to resolve the dispute. It has simply thrown the ball back at Kamal Haasan, asking him to find a way out of a mess that was not his making. In doing so, it has risked the unfortunate perception that it is reluctant to take a hard and forthright decision based on law.

    There should have been no place for such temporising given the clear judicial precedents in such cases. It was only two years ago that the Supreme Court set aside the two-month ban on the Hindi film Aarakshan on the ground that States cannot proscribe films that have been cleared by the Central Board of Film Certification on the mere apprehension that screening them may cause a law and order problem. As we pointed out recently in this space (“Responsibility To Protect,” January 25, 2013), the landmark case that set the tone for such judgments was S. Rangarajan v/s P. Jagajivan Ram, where the Supreme Court held that “freedom of expression cannot be suppressed on account of threat of demonstrations and processions and threat of violence.” It is true there have been regrettable aberrations to a judicial approach that has strongly refused to cower before blackmail and intimidation. Only recently, the Supreme Court dismissed a petition challenging the Tamil Nadu government’s ban on the release of the film DAM 999. The ban on Vishwaroopam must be quashed and the police directed to provide adequate protection to theatres and moviegoers. While it is the right of the fringe Muslim groups who are offended, seemingly or otherwise, to protest against the film, any demonstration should be staged only peacefully. Anyone who threatens or takes recourse to violence deserves to be dealt with strictly and punitively.

    Just watched the press meet from Kamal Haasan. Out of the heart speech, I must say. He also hinted that he will seek residence outside India as well if he don't find any secular place here. Very sad and emotional press meet...

    Watched Vishwaroop yesterday. An excellent Kamal Hasan movie. As mentioned by Ramjn, I also did not find anything wrong in the film to be banned. A must watch movie unless you are weak at heart and cannot see blood.

    My rating: 10/10

    Saw Telugu Version of Vishwaroopam couple of days back.. Excellent Work by Kamal again. My opinion nothing observed as objectionable scene 9/10 most of the story revolving around US/Afghanistan and terrorism no where any community or India is portrayed, Saw his speech in you tube too..
