Madras High Court may pronounce verdict on Kamal Haasan's Vishwaroopam today..
It's a significant day for southern superstar Kamal Haasan as the Madras High Court is likely to announce its decision on his controversial film Vishwaroopam on Monday.
The court, on January 24, had stayed the release of the Rs.90 crore budget film.
On Saturday, Justice K. Venkatraman watched Vishwaroopam along with the leaders of the fringe radical outfits to check whether or not the film shows Muslims in poor light.
Meanwhile, Kamal Haasan, who has also directed the film, returned from Los Angeles early on Monday morning for the crucial day. Haasan, who was attending the release of his movie in the US, has maintained that there is nothing offensive in his film.
Kamal Haasan has pinned hope on the Madras High Court's verdict.
According to those who had seen the premiere, Vishwaroopam is the story of an 'effeminate' Bharatnatyam-dancer husband getting back his wife, drifting away from him and falling into the trap of a terrorist ring, by proving his masculinity as one who busts the network and saves the United States as well as mankind. As an agent of the Indian external intelligence agency, RAW, he enters Afghanistan in the guise of a Mujahideen and even trains the jihadists on warfare. He finds out their plan of smuggling Uranium into the US through doves, used as couriers and succeeds in foiling it.
Scripted and directed by Kamal who plays the lead, it features Pooja Kumar and Andrea Jeremiah along with Rahul Bose. It is also the first movie in the country and the second ever to have Auro-3D sound track to give a whole new experience to viewers.
