All decks cleared for PapanasamMar 19, 2015 JB
Malayalam blockbuster Drishyam is remade in Tamil with the title Papanasam starring Kamal Haasan and Gauthami. Jeetu Joseph, who helmed the original, has directed Papanasam too.
There was some controversy regarding a case filed against the film and its makers. The good news is that the Second Additional District Court, Ernakulam has dismissed a suit filed by Satheesh Paul against the producers and Jeethu Joseph, claiming that the story of Dhrishyam was a copyright violation of his novel Oru Mazhakalath. The shooting of Papanasam was initially stalled by Satheesh Paul, who had obtained an interim injunction but the producers managed to vacate the injunction and contested the case.
After hearing both sides the District Court has finally dismissed the claims of Satheesh Paul and on merit has passed an order in favor of the producers and Jeethu Joseph. The good news is that the verdict clearly puts to rest the entire controversy. Papanasam is completed and would hit the theatres this summer. Click the Movie button below for more info:
