A.M.R. Ramesh’s latest celluloid offering, Kavalar Kudiyiruppu, inspired by an incident that took place at the Police Quarters in Bengaluru during the Babri Masjid demolition, has got a ‘U’ Censor Certification without any cuts. Though it is a sensitive subject, Ramesh says he has not dramatised the theme.
“It’s a romantic story, based on a real-life Hindu-Muslim riot incident that took place with a romantic couple at the police quarters in Bengaluru. This happened as a result of the violence that broke out post-Ayodhya. I have tried out a new narration and fresh ways of depicting the communal clash. The story spans three different periods — 1968, 1992 and the present time. Cinematographer Dwarakanath has used different tones for the three periods.”
