Plaint against makers of 'Prem Adda'

A private complaint has been filed against the producer and director of the Kannada movie ‘Prem Adda,’ alleging that a song in the film portrays women in poor light.

N P Amruthesh, a City-based advocate, in his complaint has said that a song in the film, released in September 2012 is vulgar, obscene and hurts the religious sentiments of the Hindus.

According to the complaint, the song invokes characters in the Mahabharata and depicts them indecently. The lyricist, playback singer and music director of the movie, too, have been arrayed as the accused in the complaint.

The complaint states that the sub-inspector at the Upparpet police station refused to register his complaint and that he had sent the complaint through registered post to the inspector and the Deputy Commissioner of Police.

Amruthesh claimed the police had failed to take action against the accused despite receiving his complaint via registered post.

The advocate said the language used in the song caused insult to women and attracted punishment under Section 504 of the IPC and also Indecent Representation of Women Act.

The court of the Chief Metropolitan Magistrate has reserved orders for March 25.
