For months, Malaysians were excitedly waiting for the movie’s release, as it had been mostly shot in Malaysia.
Now, a representative of Lotus Five Star finally revealed the reason behind the movie ban here.
According to the spokesperson, the movie’s makers failed to get necessary police permits to shoot some of the movie scenes in Malaysia, which is considered illegal. As per the law, movie crews need to get permission before shooting to avoid such problems.
Another vital reason for the ban is that the Royal Malaysian Police (PDRM) are portrayed in a negative light in the movie, which gives a very bad image to our country. Besides portraying police officers as corrupt, there are also scenes which supposedly create inaccurate and misleading impressions on the Malaysian Police Force.
For these reasons, the Film Censorship Board has banned the movie in Malaysia. Here's what some Malaysians got to say about the ban:
It’s official - Kadaram Kondan is banned in Malaysia. According to sources, it’s because Vikram would be playing as a dirty Malaysian cop and it’s against our law to show the police in a negative way.— Raajeevan Sandran (@RaajBaymax) July 19, 2019
Life is sad for a movie-buff in Malaysia ?
