Award winning film raises political row

The controversy over an award-winning Malayalam movie, which has an indirect reference to late Congress leader K.Karunakaran, on Monday turned into a slanging match between the ruling UDF and the CPI-M after the state culture minister criticised the film.     Culture Minister K.C. Joseph said that creative freedom is not a license to defame anyone.    'I am yet to see that film... From what I read in newspaper reports, it seems that there is a veiled attempt to defame Karunakaran, which is certainly not acceptable,' Joseph told reporters here.    Angry Congressmen burnt film director Kamal's effigy in front of the theatre where his film 'Celluloid' is being screened.
