Madras Cafe: Bollywood Sri Lanka War Film Pulled In UK And South India

A Bollywood spy thriller set against the backdrop of the Sri Lankan civil war has been pulled from British and some Indian theatres after protests over its depiction of rebel fighters, the movie’s distributors said Saturday, AFP reported.

Madras Cafe, which opened Friday, features John Abraham as an Indian secret agent sent to Sri Lanka during the island’s decades-long conflict between the government and separatist Tamil rebels, the Fox news reported.

    No media freedom in UK and South India.

    SL has more media freedom than them. How many South Indian films are shown in SL every day?

      South India and UK are controlled by the LTTE and the Tamil Global Forum.

      LTTE/TGF says ban or pull the movies, UK and South India says, Yes Sir!

      Time Article has an issue on the Buddhist Monk Terrorists and Buddhist Terrorism in Burma and Sri Lanka.

      BBS said pull it off Sri Lanka shelves, the SL Govt, pulls it off the shelf. Not UK and not South India.

      This is called press freedom!

          True. Vatican saved many NAZIs and sent them to Brazil and other countries.

          The same Catholic Church is a partner in LTTE terror in Sri Lanka. Shame less Catholic/Christian priests joined LTTE in Bank robberies in Jaffna.

        This film was partly funded by SL. You don’t show films produced by war criminals. If you allow this what is next – drug smugglers film?

      “we in sri lanka have so much media freedom we can easily walk into the private houses and bathrooms of all media persons and even watch them in their private life.”

      I know this island is infected with perverts, but all 20 millions of them?

      It sounds about right.

    MadrasCafe is an anti-Tamil Propaganda film by Abraham, like Joseph Goebbels’ Nazi anti-semitic propaganda film “The Eternal Jew” in 1940.

        I have read the reviews of both the films by reputable sources.

        One doesn’t see an atom, but accept the views of reputed scientists who understand the science(true knowledge)of atoms.

        According to MADRAS CAFE, LTTE was India’s child. Once Rajiv signed the Agreement Rajiv wanted to stop the war. Rajiv wanted provincials elections in Sri Lanka in a hurry. India knew even who would be selected to the provincial councils (So, we can imagine, Why Dayan Jayathilake is so pro-Indian). Velu got foreign aids from the West and took the revenge from Rajiv.

        I think that was why Velu waited until the very last moment that West somehow would save him. Because. Velu worked for the west. If LTTE won the war, Trincomalee would have been a military base for the west.

        So, we can think who have helped indirectly.

        Anyway, what Mahinda Rajapakse said was correct. He fought the India’s war. India as usual showed the middle finger to Sri Lanka after the War. THAT IS TYPICAL INDIA.

    Madrascafe film, by distorting a genuine freedom fight, cannot be considered an expression of artistic freedom.

    Propagandists have always been using the print and other media to inflame the emotions of masses. Napoleon, Lenin and Joseph Goebbels are notorious for such viscous propaganda with catastrophic results.

    Therefore, not every film cannot be considered an expression of artistic freedom, especially MadrasCafe (Mad-Ra’sCafe), which hurts the feelings of Tamils everywhere, like Nazi’s “The eternal Jew” did to the Jews in Germany during Hitler’s regime.

      Thiru,

      Your comparison of this film with the “The Eternal Jew” is disingenuous. “Der Ewige Jude” as it was named in German is caricaturing a whole nation with genocidal motives. This film is about RAW’s involvement in the “Ealam War”. This is not demeaning the Tamil people as a race.

        This film MadrasCafe is suspected to be financed and directed by the MARA regime in collaboration with the ruling elite of India to demonize Tamil Freedom movement in Sri Lanka.

        This propaganda film is primarily directed at the Indian and Sri Lankan audience to destroy the concept of Tamil’s struggle for freedom from oppression from Sinhala extremist regimes since independence.

          As the “Hindu” editorial commented, it should not have been banned. The people who see the film – in some quarters alleged to be financed by GoSL/GoI interests – will decide. If what we see and what not is allowed to be decided by screaming mobs in the streets, that is anarchy and goes against the spirit of democracy.

            Let’s say one makes a movie to show the other side of ‘Mahathma’ Gandhi’, as a pervert. Do you think Hindu would write the same lines?

      My guess, Tamils could not have supported single handedly to run the LTTE war. This foreign aids should have supported militarily a lot.

      Only thing is some Tamils sacrificed other tamils for their Eelam – dream.

      But your beloved LTTE behaved like NAZIS in every way. Vatican was an ally of Nazis and the same vatican supported and involved in bank robberies in Jaffna.

      Hitler was a corporal and Prabhakaran was a petty criminal!

    Both India and UK are due to go to polls soon. Hence, the alleged ban in UK where Tamil extremists with funds raised through extortion seen as able to influence election outcomes. Pity, UK that boasts of freedoms has to find itself in this situation. There are no doubts of the nature and orientation of LTTE, scumbags!

      “Hence, the alleged ban in UK where Tamil extremists with funds raised through extortion seen as able to influence election outcomes.”

      My elders tell me the LTTE rump in the UK was close to Labour party before the general elections in 2010. Yet Labour party lost many seats to Tories and had to move to the opposition benches.

      How do you reconcile your assertion that Tamils in UK are able to influence election outcomes and what was the actual outcome of the last election.

      I am bit thick and do not understand all those high politics. Could you explain/reconcile your perception and facts.

    Madras cafe did not touch the torture chambers of LTTE or how LTTE killed and burnt Tamils who were kidnapped by them and imprisoned in Thunukkai!

    Those prisoners were used to build those massive bunkers and killed later.
