What is your take on the Mersal Vs BJP issue?

Last week, BJP's Tamil Nadu state unit had asked the producers of Vijay-starrer Mersal to cut some scenes that criticise central government policies such as GST and New India. 

In the movie, more than one dialogue takes on these policies and mocks them. The issue got national attention after BJP leaders from the state and Vijay fans along with film personalities locked horns on the matter.


Deccan Herald posed a question on Twitter about the standoff between Mersal and BJP. "What is your take on the #MersalvsBJP issue? Reply with your views" was the question, which got our readers talking. We are aggregating the replies here.

@awadkum suggested cinema is meant for entertainment and cannot be used for political mudslinging.  

 Another Twitter user said the movie targets doctors more than it does BJP. 

 @LathaRamaswamy in a series of replies justified Mersal's dialogues. "GST is a plan by central govt to use the State govt revenue", she replied. She also pointed out that truth should be heard from anywhere. 

 

 

 

 

 @hareaswar opined that the Digital India policy is a joke. 

 And @Vinayakmohan shared the opinion that the movie is 'usual dumb masala' and unnecessarily politicised. 

 What do you have to say about this issue?
