Kerala Story screening JNU: The best way to destroy your opponent is by ignoring him/her, as if the person never existed at all. The same applies for institutions, as well as creative projects. However, much as they mock their ideological opponents, the leftists are now developing the same habit they once jeered at. Now, “The Kerala Story” is capitalizing on this very obsession.
“The Kerala Story” screened at FTII and JNU
While writing anything about the success of “The Kerala Story”, the movie has decided to raise their bar a bit. In a welcome surprise for many, the makers of this film managed to have the movie screened at JNU and FTII.
Now you might be wondering what’s so unique about it? Well, both of them are known strongholds of the ideological Left. In simpler terms, consider them the “Gulags of the East”. Jawaharlal Nehru University has been quite notorious for harboring people with extremist ideologies, most of which have been hardly pro Indian. On the other hand, Film and Television Institute of India, one of the premier institutes in India in terms of filmmaking, is not any different.
As such, when a film completely opposite to the dogma entrenched in the campus is released, protests were bound to happen. However, to everyone’s surprise, none of them were successful. Yes, you heard that right. The film was successfully screened at both the institutes, despite the ruckus created in order to prevent the same.
The National Film Institute in Pune recently hosted a screening of the film, ‘The Kerala Story’ on May 20. However, a section of the students protested against the screening of Kerala Story and created a ruckus at the JNU campus.
The Kerala Story JNU screening was interrupted by raising slogans against the makers Sudipto Sen and Vipul Shah. Later, the film was screened under police protection. Notably, FTII is the same body where students and freedom of thought are of prime essence, and these very folkstried to create a ruckus at the venue when the screening was on. I guess, priorities!!!

These protestors have believed to have a left-supporting ideology. Drums and slogans were raised to stop this Kerala Story JNU screening. Notably, the supporters of the film raised slogans against the protestors like Bharat Mata Ki Jai, Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj Ki Jai, Jai Bhawani Jai Shivaji, Vande Mataram and others. Citing the tense atmosphere, a heavy police force was deployed on place.

Use the very trick your opponents are good at
Well, I’m not a very big fan of Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi, but he did say one thing right, “First they ignore you, then they laugh at you, then they fight you, and then you win!”
Looks like the makers of “The Kerala Story” have followed this saying verbatim. Often there was a grudge that the makers on the ‘right side’ didn’t go out all guns blazing, or use the very institutions that attacked them to their advantage.

However, we forget that Sudipto Sen has been a communist by his own admission, and only a communist knows another better. From the institutions to even the judiciary, the makers left no stone unturned to make sure that “The Kerala Story” is not suppressed in any manner, and it seems that they have succeeded by leaps and bounds.
