Dasavathaaram: anti-Hindu case update

The case against Dasavathaaram by the self-proclaimed protectors of Hinduism came up for hearing last week and will continue on Tuesday, May 20. Director KS Ravikumar put forth his response refuting the allegations. Additionally, an official of the Censor Board too provided support.

News that came out indirectly is that the release date for the movie has not yet been fixed.

Read reports from The Hindu, Behindwoods, Thatstamil, Dinamalar and TamilCinema.com.

Meanwhile, the makers seem very confident of having the case dismissed.

    Funny country this… Any stupid moron can file a lawsuit against a movie based on the flimsiest of claims and the movie producers won’t be able to do a thing. And finally when the court decides that the film is good according to their flawed standards and dismisses the lawsuit, the culprit, who filed the lawsuit in the first place, goes unpunished. In the mean time, he manages to screw up the release dates, spoil the party of millions of fans, waste tons of money and time, and worst of all, gains a lot of publicity.

    And these sick social activists say that it’s the film makers who need to be more responsible and more mature. LMFAO. This society is a joke.

    Well said Krishnan ! The law should punish the complainant considerably, only then, these stupid people will think twice before filing another case on another movie.

    You are right.Kanal Hassan’s movies are hugely popular here in Sri Lanka.Anbe Sivam, Guna and Mahanadhi all did very well here.I simply do not know why these so called ‘fans’ of Rajnikanth have burst onto the scene suddenly.If they do not like Kamal Haasan, so be it.Why post utter rubbish here and waste all our time?

    Dear everyone,
    I just wanted to point out, for the record,that there is a difference between the Swami Govinda Ramanuja dasa in India and Govinda Ramanuja dasa in America. They might have the same name and Religion, but,They are two totally different people.
    I personally know the Govinda Ramanuja dasa in America and he is a non-political, highly Spiritual-Godly person. The things that the commentor “mythbasher” said about the american Govinda Ramanuja dasa is very harsh and untrue. the american Govinda Ramanuja dasa is not at all “Madcap” or crazy like mythbuster portrays him. But, the total opposite. I have know the american Govinda Ramanuja dasa for a number of years, and he is a very sane, thoughtful, highly intellegent, loving, caring and Highly Godly person. Who has helped many people, wheither Spiritually-Religiously, financially or other-wise. He has many friends that would vouch for what I said. The only thing you can say about the american Govinda Ramanuja dasa, while he was on Wikipedia, he was try to stop the mis-information, dominance and cult slant that certain ISKCON/Hare Krishna editors have done on most of the Hindu related articles on Wikipedia, by defending his conserns and opposition with Shruti or the original scriptures of India; the four Vedas, the main Upanishads, the Laws of Manu, the Vedanta sutra…Which ISKCON does not follow and is critical of. For a time he was successful against their spreading of their cult ideas and fantasies on Wikipedia, but, retired from editoring amist the collective opposition of ISKCON editors and their supporters in marring any thing related to hindu articles with ISKCON cult ideas. As for the american Govinda Ramanuja dasa being a “madcap member of two dozen nutcase organizations and secret societies” as mythbasher said, before becoming a Vaishnava, the american Govinda Ramanuja dasa, was involved in a number of western Spiritual organizations for many years, that werent at all…nutcases. But, for him, these groups paved a Spiritual road for him to become a VERY devoted Scriptural-following Vaishnava and follower of the Sanatana Dharma. From what the american Govinda Ramanuja dasa said to me, he WAS a high level Freemason and a high level Rosicrusian, and he proved it to me by showing his certificates and deplomas. He said that all the spiritual things that he learned from these groups help him in intuitively understanding and following Shastra/Shruti. Before becoming Hindu/Vaishnava, he practiced and studied Jewish Kabbalah, Gnosticism,Buddhism and many other paths and Spiritual disciplines that helped him in his dharmic practices as a strict Vaishnava/Hindu now. As a friend of the american Govinda Ramanuja dasa, his knowledge and understanding of the Vedas and almost every thing dealing with Godly matters…is incredible! like I said, the american Govinda Ramanuja dasa is a caring, extraordinary, helpful, sane friend to all and Non-political and Very Godly and Spiritual. I hope that this clears up any confusion in this matter
