Movie . Drama
Papilio Buddha, released in the year 2013, emerges from the director and writer Jayan K. Cherian with a different concept which was able to shrill the very consciousness of the audience, making them silently weep inside. The script takes the viewers through the atrocities and cruelty against the Dalits and the environment towards a social message based on discrimination and political power to suppress the lower caste and related incidents in Kerala. This Malayalam movie had to face several controversies regarding its plot and the whole structure of the film, due to which, they were denied the censor certification by the Central Board of Film Certification(CBFC). Even though the censor had given out so many reasons against the certification, such as a speech denigrating Gandhi and usage of filthy language, Jayan denies all the reasons claiming that the story comes from the pain and troubles of the Dalits, which is not negotiable. In January 2013, Papilio Buddha got the certification after the makers agreed to mute a controversial speech by Ambedkar, which implied Gandhi being a cheater and denying the Dalits an electoral constituency of their own. Jayan exclaims that India, being a democrat country, banned his movie initially just because he came up with a counter-narrative on Mahatma Gandhi to the official one as he is pictured as a saint through our educational system.
