Adipurush: The Supreme Court DECLINES to Hear an Immediate Hearing Against a High Court Order Seeking the Makers' Personal Presence
Adipurush's problems don't appear to be going away anytime soon. Although the movie has received a lot of attention, its flaws are still being debated. According to a recent report, the Supreme Court declined to hear an urgent petition challenging an order of the Allahabad High Court for the producers of the divisive movie "Adipurush" to appear before it on July 27.
The massively expensive version of the Hindu epic Ramayana did badly at the box office and received criticism for its shoddy acting, subpar VFX, and cringe-worthy language. Additionally, several viewers criticised the producers for allegedly sexualizing the plot of the much-awaited movie, which had a purported budget of approximately Rs 600 Crores.
On July 13, a bench presided over by Chief Justice DY Chandrachud reportedly urged the attorney for the film producers to bring it up.
The high court had earlier on June 30 ordered the controversial movie's creators to appear before it on July 27 and instructed the central government to create a committee to voice its opinions on the movie.
The hearing was based on separate petitions Kuldeep Tiwari and Naveen Dhawan submitted in an effort to get the movie banned.
Notably, the high court also ordered the film's producer, Bhushan Kumar, and dialogue writer, Manoj Muntasir, to appear before it on July 27. It also ordered the central government to form a five-member committee to assess whether the film offended the sensibilities of the general public.
The government was also told by the court to examine its decision to give the movie a certificate.
The Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC) chairman and the secretary of the Ministry of Information and Broadcasting will each submit a personal affidavit stating whether or not the requirements for film certification and public exhibition were followed prior to approving the film's screening, the high court noted.
