Director Ram Gopal Varma‘s contentious film ‘Vyooham,’ which obtained certification from the Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC), became entangled in legal proceedings instigated by producer Dasari Kirankumar in the Telangana High Court.
On Thursday, the case was heard by the main justices, Alok Aradhe and Anilkumar Jukanti. The petitioner argued against the judgment, stating that the political party filing the petition lacked eligibility. The single judge ruled against the cinematography law, stressing the importance of a clear decision on the film’s release without relying on trial and error, such as watching trailers. Additional Solicitor General (ASG) Narasimha Sharma, representing CBFC, presented arguments during the proceedings.

After a thorough examination, the CBFC’s revising committee, functioning as a grievance redressal mechanism, issued a revised certificate.

On December 28, the High Court halted the release citing that the Revising Committee did not provide reasons for issuing a Certificate of Exhibition. Initially, the application had been denied due to several irregularities. The court noted that the certificate was granted by the Revising Committee even though no significant deletions or alterations were made.

The court instructed the Central Board of Film Certification, Revising Committee, and the film’s producer to submit all records related to the movie for its consideration.

The movie reportedly revolves around the circumstances leading to the demise of former Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister YS Rajasekhara Reddy and the subsequent political journey of his son, YS Jagan Mohan Reddy, who currently holds the position of Chief Minister.
