The legal notice alleges that the film 'Sarpatta Parambarai' has certain misleading scenes, depicting the political scenario of the 70s in Chennai inaccurately.
AIADMK leader and former MLA RM Babu Murugavel has issued a legal notice to Amazon and the makers of the film 'Sarpatta Parambarai' alleging that certain scenes in the films are inaccurate and misleading.
The legal notice claims that certain facts produced in the film are totally inaccurate and induce the sense of misleading the public at large with events and incidents without material proof.
Sarpatta Parambarai released on Amazon Prime on July 22.
The movie, directed by PA Ranjith, who is known to portray the essence of Madras in its raw form, is about the 70s when Chennai was buzzing with a boxing culture.
The movie depicts the rivalry between 'Sarpatta Parambarai' and 'Idiyappa Parambarai', two groups ruling the boxing ring in the 70s in the city.
However, the movie also has some scenes showcasing DMK and AIADMK leaders.
AIADMK leader has raised objection over a dialogue in the movie. While the movie dialogue claims "Chief minister's son was also arrested under the Maintenance of Internal Security Act [MISA]", Babu Murugavel says that no such incident took place at that time.
Babu Murugavel stated that the scene seems to be based on the then chief minister, M Karunanidhi, and his son and MK Stalin. He added that after research, he had found out that there were no such incident of MK Stalin's arrest under the MISA Act.
The legal notice also stated that there are more scenes in the film showing "false propaganda" and "politically motivated verses" in favour of the present government of Tamil Nadu.
Babu Murugavel has demanded removal of the scenes.
Former AIADMK minister Jayakumar had also expressed objection over the movie earlier, saying that the director had hidden 30 years of good governance by MGR in the movie.
Sarpatta Parambarai makers are yet to comment to the allegations.
