AIADMK leader and former MLA RM Babu Murugavel have issued a legal notice to Amazon and the makers of the film ‘Sarpatta Parambarai’ alleging that certain scenes in the films are inaccurate and misleading. The legal notice claims that certain facts produced in the film are totally inaccurate and induce the sense of misleading the public at large with events and incidents depicting the political scenario of the 70s in Chennai inaccurately.
Sarpatta Parambarai was released on Amazon Prime on July 22. The movie, directed by PA Ranjith, who is known to portray the essence of Madras in its raw form, is about the 70s when Chennai was buzzing with a boxing culture. The movie depicts the rivalry between ‘Sarpatta Parambarai’ and ‘Idiyappa Parambarai’, two groups ruling the boxing ring in the 70s in the city.
