While Kamal Hassan’s magnum opus Vishwaroopam released to packed houses in some countries like Malaysia and western parts of the world, it is sad that the film has been banned in its homeland.
Unfortunately, it has not been banned in Tamil Nadu alone as the neighboring state Pondicherry has also banned it from screening for the next 15 days.
There were huge expectations that Vishwaroopam would hit the marquee in Hyderabad and Bengaluru but this did not happen according to reports coming from those cities.
Further, the film is not being screened in our neighboring country Sri Lanka as well where there is a sizable amount of Tamil-speaking population.
It may be recalled that the Madras High Court has stayed Vishwaroopam from hitting the screens until Monday, January 28th, 2013 as the Judge would be at the special screening on January 26th to make sure that the film will not create law and order problems.
