The complaint, lodged by a person from a Scheduled Caste community, alleges that the film portrays their tribe in poor light by showing them performing manual scavenging for their survival.
Baskar Marutham, the Youth wing leader of Puthiya Thamizhagam - a party that champions the cause of Dalits, in his complaint said, "Ours is an agricultural community. By showing us as manual scavengers the film attempts to trigger communal clashes. We are actually fighting to get our community out of the SC (Scheduled Caste) list".
Responding to the police, Mr Bharathi said," It's a slap on freedom of expression. We are moving a quash petition in the Madurai bench of the Madras High Court".
