‘The Kerala Story’ is the movie that everyone is talking about. Despite the film’s controversial subject matter and the backlash it has received, it has become a box office hit, with audiences flocking to theaters to watch it.
The film, which is based on the true story of three Kerala women who were tricked into joining the ISIS in Syria and Iraq through love jihad, has sparked a political storm in India. The movie has been accused of promoting hate against a particular religion, and protests have erupted in several states.
However, the controversy seems to have only fueled interest in the film, with ‘The Kerala Story’ breaking box office records and raking in a staggering Rs 68.86 crore in just a few days. Trade analyst Taran Adarsh has noted that the film has been experiencing a surprising growth rate, with collections increasing even on weekdays.
Despite being banned in West Bengal and facing opposition in Tamil Nadu, ‘The Kerala Story’ has been declared tax-free in Uttar Pradesh and Madhya Pradesh, and special screenings have been organized in other states. The film has become a national talking point, with people debating its merits and questioning its intentions.
The movie stars Adah Sharma, Yogita Bihani, Siddhi Idnani, and Sonia Balani in lead roles, and has been directed by Sudipto Sen and produced by Vipul Amrutlal Shah.
While the controversy surrounding the film has been intense, it has also opened up a much-needed dialogue about the issue of love jihad, which has been a subject of concern in India for some time. The movie’s portrayal of the issue has sparked debate and discussion, with many people praising the film for addressing a sensitive topic that needs to be discussed openly.
‘The Kerala Story’ is a prime example of the power of cinema to create a dialogue and spark change. While the controversy surrounding the film may continue, it is clear that the movie has made an impact and will continue to be talked about for a long time to come.
