If The Kashmir Files was a hit, then The Kerala Story is also a super hit, rest of the debate is in its place

Just now the trailer of The Kerala Story has come. But as the response trailer has received, it is believed that The Kerala Story is going to be a big hit in the times to come. Even though there is protest against the film in Kerala, but because the film is based on true events, it will break the record of Kashmir Files.

Written by Sudipto Sen, directed by Vipul Amrutlal Shah, The Kerala Story has been in the news even before its release. Political parties in Kerala, whether it is the ruling Left Democratic Front (LDF) or the opposition United Democratic Front (UDF), have all sounded the alarm against the film. It is being said that this film is a propaganda film, the purpose of making which is to tarnish the image of Kerala as a state. As the release date of the film is coming closer, The Kerala Story is heating up the headlines. It is to be known that The Kerala Story is based on a story that allegedly tells how thousands of young women were brainwashed to join the Islamic State (IS) and go to countries like Syria and Afghanistan.

It has been claimed in the film that till now 32000 women have joined IS. On the other hand, those who are opposing the film say that there is no official data on this claim, which automatically confirms that the intention of the film is to divide people. Since the film puts Kerala as a state under question, the Chief Minister of the state Pinarayi Vijayan has given clarification on this.

Recently, Kerala Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan said in a Facebook post that this film was made by the Sangh Parivar to spread lies. In the post, CM Vijayan also said, “A perusal of the trailer gives an impression that the film was deliberately made with the aim of communal polarization and spreading hatred against Kerala. Kerala, the land of secularism, has been projected as the epicenter of religious extremism.” The Sangh Parivar is showing its propaganda by keeping this and its aim is that Sangh should take political advantage in Kerala and at the same time people should look at Muslims with suspicion.

At the same time, Kerala’s Culture and Youth Affairs Minister Saji Cheriyan has also written a Facebook post. In his post, Cheriyan has written that, ‘Kerala is a state known for communal harmony. This film can be seen as an attempt by the Sangh Parivar to destroy the secular fabric of the state. This is a conspiracy to divide the society and create unrest.

A large section is openly opposing The Kerala Story and it is the same section that raised the alarm even when Vivek Agnihotri released his film The Kashmir Files. Those who oppose the film, like in the Kerala story, are calling the talk of 32000 women joining the IS a lie. Similarly, even then he had told a lie about Kashmiri Pandits and their killing. The argument was that Vivek Agnihotri had tampered with the figures to make his film a hit.

Today, people who call The Kerala Story a propaganda film have to understand that if Vivek Agnihotri’s The Kashmir Files became a hit then, it was only because the film was based on true events, similarly they should not be surprised tomorrow when Watch The Kerala Story break all kinds of records at the box office. Why? The only reason is that if the producer-directors have made this film, then its plot also has true incidents like The Kashmir Files.

Sudipto Sen and Vipul Amritlal Shah may have tinkered with the figures. But there is no doubt that this did not happen in Kerala or women/girls were not coaxed into IS in Kerala. The subject is very simple. Because The Kerala Story is based on real events, this film is sure to be a hit and no matter how much anyone opposes this film, it cannot take away the opportunity to celebrate from Vipul Amrutlal Shah an
