Chennai, Jan 24 (): Actor Kamal Hassan is frozen with shock if anyone can read his mind. He must have been pushed to depression and messed up his own character and career.
Only Kamal Hassan should explain why he lands himself in trouble. Films like Anbe Sivam have earned him a good name which addressed human values. But when presenting social values and national issues, one should think twice. No one can be taken for granted in this era of communication and information technology. His ambition to telecast Vishwaroopam in DTH may be right. But that went wrong. Similarly the intention of Kamal Hassan for addressing the problems of terrorism or religious extremism may be right. But it is not working.
His plan to release Vishwaroopam on Miladi Nabi day should be a clear provocation on a sensitive issue. He can influence the censor board to get certificate but cannot escape public scrutiny.
He should have in mind that a film on the plot to kill Rajiv Gandhi was shelved by the Government. Perhaps he should have derived enough confidence and strength from the established forces which allowed his film Hey Ram based on plot to kill Mahatma Gandhi.
Such double standards will not work on the ground and could not go well with the people. It is unfortunate that such an actor of great talent tries this subject while there are so many innumerable stories on hand with imaginative story writers.
Now Kamal Hassan has no place to hide. His secret wishes for soft Hindutva are exposed. He himself betrayed him which should have been avoided.
Kamal Hassan has created great trouble now with news pouring in from various district police officers that this film has a potential to create law and order problem throughout Tamil Nadu. He has invited more trouble for the Chief Minister of Tamil Nadu and the Government who are preparing to celebrate Republic Day.
