Suspension on ‘Vishwaroopam’ removed in SL

The temporary suspension on Indian actor Kamala Hassan’s controversial film ‘Vishwaroopam’ has been lifted by the Sri Lanka Public Performance Board after editing two scenes in the film.

A government official however said that the decision to lift the ban now remained with the government.
 
SLPPB Chairman Gamini Sumanasekera told Daily Mirror online that the Board only removed two scenes in the film without damaging the content of the film. “We have already given the green light to screen the film in Sri Lanka after editing two scenes,” he said.
 
Last week, the government said the screening of the film in Sri Lankan was suspended, claiming the film’s potentially damaging nature to racial harmony in the country.

    Nice movie, movie is not going to damage any mosque...

    A movie in a civilized society is not going to harm anyone, and I look at it that way.
    So please do not relate this to racial disharmony or anything like that.

    Movies are normally reflections of ground realities.

    USA and India are hellbent on punishing Sri Lanka, for overcoming terrorism.

    I don't understand why our VIPs keep licking their boots despite being kicked so many times on the face.

    I watched this movie in U.K.I do not think there is anything special to ban any scenes.I considered this movie as an ordinary one.All the fuss made helped to get more money.Was this planned from the onset?

    sabesion Sunday, 10 February 2013 10:26 AM

    Hi srilanka, this is movie not reality show!!!

    This is a free country... people have the right to watch a good movie. If you don't like it, don't watch it... but don't try to deny someone else the chance of watching it.

    I'm not a fan of watching Indian films, but I will watch this movie in support of freedom of expression

    Ban this film? haven't you heard of torrents?

    raviraj Monday, 11 February 2013 05:50 AM

    SL cinema wouldn't exist with out Indian cinema. All they do is copy the Indian cinema,as they cannot do anything on their own

    Good decision, movie for audience not some religious organization. So bring it ON....

    wiz Sunday, 10 February 2013 12:00 AM

    its an awsome movie. its totally about afgan terrorists. If this is going to be banned i think the govt has to ban all Hollywood movies which is more harsh on muslims via DM Android App

    Clifford Wednesday, 13 February 2013 05:19 AM

    Watched this movie & nothing seems to be disturbing anyone. it should have been the USA who could have easily banned this movie for some scenes concerning their former president. But we all know Americans will surely must have learn something new from this movie. Kamal is indeed a International Hero

    I challenge Kamalahasan to make a movie depicting the hoax of a millennium called the holocaust.

    007 Sunday, 10 February 2013 07:48 AM

    Bowing down to Bodu Bala Sena? I do not normally go to the cinema. Will do so watch this movie.

    He is a realistic guy, of course if it's damaging harmony in the country better consider about screaming.

    Awanka Monday, 11 February 2013 04:18 AM

    Next time, he or Seeman will make a movie to show Sinhalese fighting Tamils and you guys will definitely NOT say "its just a movie" huh?

    ravi Sunday, 10 February 2013 08:04 AM

    we already seen the cd.

    lionheart Monday, 11 February 2013 07:58 AM

    How much did an Indian Bootlicking Sri Lankan minister get from India to lift the ban???

    come2cool Monday, 11 February 2013 04:29 AM

    My dear friends, it is very wrong to make a negative comment of a movie without watching it. And as a fan of Kamal Hassan I know about him. He is an atheist and I'm sure he won't make a movie against the Muslim community. In 1992, When Babri mosque was demolished he was the first celebrity to protest it and support Muslims.

    SriLankan Sunday, 10 February 2013 08:26 AM

    This movie about Afghanistan and terror. This is supporting American activities. This is not neutral movie. One side. Not recommendable movie. Better ban this movie in Sri Lanka. Movie for entertainment, not for mis-leading the society with wrong information. For money, they will do any thing for any body. What good world is this.

    school boy Sunday, 10 February 2013 08:30 AM

    we dont need any indian shit. according 2 ma knowledge, all characterz of indian tamil cinema help bloody ltte tigerz. this people dont know dat? actually indian movies are the biggest hindrance to develop our sri lankan cinema industry.

    Dr. Vedage Sunday, 10 February 2013 08:48 AM

    My dear friends.... It's just a movie. Pls do not make issues out of it and make comments to create any unpleasent atmosphere
