Komban team awaiting verdict

Komban team awaiting verdict The Madras High Court Bench here on Tuesday reserved its orders on a public interest litigation (PIL) petition filed by Puthiya Tamilagam president K. Krishnasamy against Karthi-starrer Komban.

The petitioner had opposed the release of the movie and grant of censorship certificate to it on the ground that its story revolved around animosity between different caste groups and therefore it had the potential to incite violence in southern districts.

After hearing arguments advanced by counsel for the petitioner as well as the film producer who contended that the movie had nothing to do with caste animosity, Justices S Tamilvanan and V S Ravi said that they shall pronounce their verdict by Wednesday afternoon.

Interestingly Studio Green has planned to go ahead with the release after the verdict and the show starts at 6 pm.
