Film Censorship Board of Malaysia bans Chiyaan Vikram's 'Kadaram Kondan' in Malaysia.
A remake of the French film 'Point Blank', 'Kadaram Kondan' has Vikram playing KK, a mysterious agent and hitman.
Chiyaan's Kadaram Kondan released worldwide on July 19th but not in Malaysia, the country where it was exclusively shot. Lotus Five Star AV, the film’s distributor in Malaysia, announced that the Film Censorship Board of Malaysia has banned the film from releasing in the country.
The speculation for the reason behind the ban is that the film, directed by Rajesh M Selva, allegedly portrays the Malaysian police force in a bad light. In the film, a few members of the Malaysian police force are shown as corrupt and working for criminals.
A remake of the French film Point Blank, Kadaram Kondan had Vikram play KK, a mysterious agent and hitman. The title translates to 'Conqueror of Kadaram' (a Malaysian state which is also called Kedah). The film also stars Lena, Abi Hassan and Akshara Haasan in pivotal roles. The film was dubbed and released in Telugu as Mr. KK.
Kadaram Kondan received a lukewarm response from critics but seems to be doing well at the box-office.
Produced by Kamal Haasan’s banner Raaj Kamal Films, Kadaram Kondan is an action entertainer and Vikram’s first release this year. Rajesh’s previous film was Thoongaa Vanam starring Kamal Haasan and Trisha which was a remake of a French film titled Sleepless Night.
