A lawyer, V Ramesh has expressed his disappointment with Kaththi and Puliparvai stating that these films hinders the culture and rituals of the Tamil culture and have also portrayed the Sri Lankan Tamils issue in an insensitive way in the films. He therefore seeks a ban on these two films.
It is said that the producer of 'Kaththi' received funds from the Government of Sri Lanka to include hurtful lines about the Tamils. More odd rumors also say that these films insult Tamils all over the world by showing them as terrorists and much more. The judge handling this case is N Kirubakaran has postponed judgement on the ban until further investigation.
