The Consumers Association of Penang (CAP) has urged National Film Development Corporation Malaysia (FINAS) to ban ‘Kabali’ movie immediately.
CAP president S.M Mohamed Idris said the movie ‘Kabali’ showcase gangsterism elements that could be undesirable to Indian youths.
“Kabali reflects the harsh realities that plagued the Indian community thus youths could get a misconception that violence is part and parcel of life.
“The movie also portrays gangsterism in good manner which could also give a wrong impression to youths.
“Gangsterism aspects portrayed in the movie should not be normalised even though it is for ‘entertainment’ purpose,” he said via a press statement today.
Kabali is the first Tamil motion picture to be dubbed in Bahasa Malaysia for Malaysian audience.
The film, which began its shooting in Chennai last August, was also shot in Thailand and Malaysia.
The movie also featured local artistes such as Rosyam Nor, Norman Hakim, Zack Taipan and Tony Kassim.
