After listening to several interviews and justifications, when I saw the trailer, I was heartbroken. The Kerala Story – is everywhere. It is called an imaginary story; someone accused it of exaggeration; someone called it a political trick; and there is a lot of discussion on the number 32 thousand and three girls; the same things happened when the Kashmir Files were released. It was a film that was made tax-free in many states.
Which films are tax-free? The movies that are socially relevant or have inspiring stories are made tax- free. Now the question arises: are people being affected by the human trafficking shown? Is it having a positive impact on people’s lives? Is it that much of a necessary story?
Then what is the purpose of making it tax-free while it is an imaginary story? It has been in the news for the last six months, and its impact is very important to assess.
