Chiyaan Vikram’s Kadaram Kondan has received rave reviews since its release last weekend. The movie has been running successfully across the world but to much dismay has been banned in the very country it was made in; Malaysia.
Kadaram Kondan is a crime thriller about an expecting couple who just moved to Malaysia and unintentionally gets caught up in a dangerous whirlwind of crime, abduction, gangsters and a bad cop. While there has been no official statement on why the film has been banned, speculations are that the film’s portrayal of Malaysian police badly has irked the censor board and resulted in a nationwide ban of the film. The Malaysian Censorship Board or Lembaga Penapisan Filem (LPF), has denied that the censor was because of the title of the film that is translated as “The Ruler Of Kedah”.
The film also features the debut of Malaysian actor, Jasmine Kaar, who plays the role of a gangster called ‘Annie’.
Kadaram Kondan has been produced under Kamal Haasan’s Raaj Kamal Films International and directed by Rajesh M Selva. The film features Vikram, Akshara Haasan, Abi Haasan, Lena, Jasmine and others.
