Mangaluru: Accusation of defaming lawyer fraternity - Stay order on Tulu movie 'Girgit'


Media Release

Mangaluru, Sep 12: In a turn of events, court has sent a stay order on the exhibition of popular Tulu movie 'Girgit'. The order was passed by the junior principal civil judge justice Harish. This is given based on the accusation that the lawyer fraternity has been defamed in the movie.

Senior lawyer M P Shenoy argued in favour of the Bar Association in the court and accordingly the court has passed a stay order on the exhibition of the movie. The release from Mangalore Bar association says, "An injunction order has been passed against the Tulu movie Girgit for the derogatory, defamatory statements against the advocates and for the mockery of the judicial system of the nation. The injunction order has been passed by the Principal civil judge, DK Mangalore in O. S 1152/2019. The matter in support of the advocates (Mangalore Bar Association) was argued by advocate M P Shenoy.”

The Mangaluru Bar Association has called for a press conference in this regard in their office at 4 pm on Thursday, September 12.

In the meantime, president, honorary president and the office bearers of CATCA (R) and Tulu Kalavidara Okkuta have asked all the artistes of the Tulu film industry to gather at the court premises of the city at 3 pm on Thursday to request the Mangalore Bar Association to withdraw their argument thereby removing the stay on the movie.

    I thought Mangaloreans are very smart and intelligent. Didn't know that Mangalore also have some fools like this . Guys, Film is just for the entertainment and you should not be taking it seriously. If you think like that no once can make movies.

    People get offended over anything these days. If they poured the same passion into trying to improve the judicial system and help those people whose cases have been going on since years,it would have been better

    Lawyers should know better about freedom of expression which is a constitutional right. There is no malicious intention of defaming anyone – it is just a comedy movie. There is unwritten exception for defaming people in comedy. Lawyers should take this matter with a pinch of salt and laugh it out. People know there are honest and dishonest, good and bad lawyers in the system. One judge has allegedly taken Rs.5 crores bribe from Reddys means all judges are not corrupt. I feel sorry for the wonderful artists of our TULUNAAD have to go through this. They are our treasure. If you are successful in bringing permanent stay order, don’t you think people have alternate ways to watch this movie? Spade is spade anyway.

    It reminds me that most of the bad characters in the Hindi movie carry Christian names. Christians don't make a big deal about it because the people know Christians better.

    After all, it is just a comedy movie and will not hurt your business. You will get a good business due to the new traffic laws. Please let it go. Cheers !!!!

    Great job by Tulu movie, The movie has shown the truth what is inside a Bar. Nowadays people are not stupid to hear nonsense from a responsible given to any organization.From here afterwards all organizations should be honest and truthful. or people will trample with befitting reply to any acts with filmy acts.

    GIRGIT TEAM has worked so hard for producing an amazing movie for families and in turn they get this.
    Absolutely devastated and hope that the court understands that this is not a serious issue but one brought up as a cause of jealousy.

    GIRGIT Team take it in the best spirit as free publicity which will encourage more people to watch this rib tickling comedy. DON"T WORRY !! YOU HAVE ALL TULUVAS SUPPORT!!

    This is all just to slow down the amazing run of GIRGIT movie which is the best tulu movie ever.

    These people have no other work.

    Comedy comes against all sections of society and types of society (in all movie languages). This will just boost GIRGIT movies and increase the audience of the already house full shows .

    WE SHOULD BE SUPPORTING NOT STOPPING THE PROGRESS OF THIS MOVIE!!

    Lan... Ji... Have you got to see this "girgit"....? We used to call girgit for an insect that looks like grasshopper.... but with long brown body white wings. They come after rainy season in the evenings. We used to catch them and tie with long thread and call them aeroplanes while flying... Now they are less and I feel very sorry for hurting them...

    people of dakshina kannada are nanjelas from inside. Outside they will show as namma tuluver. But there are lots of differences.
    If one has gone through the interview of great tulu drama writer and producer Vijay Kumar Kodialbail he or she can come to know the politics inside the tulu film world itself.

    This is just an attempt to stop a Tulu movie which is doing great in cinemas not only in Mangalore and Bangalore but In UAE, Oman and Qatar.

    There are so many movies which make use of certain professions for comedy effect but there are no such defamatory acts in GIRGIT.

    I can't see why such a problem has arisen when in fact we should be supporting one of the best Tulu movies to be produced in quite a long time.

    VERY SAD TO SEE THIS!

    Hind movies are high budget movies. and these people do not have guts to question them, this stay order was put not because they made fun of judicial system, this was just made to stop the success of the movie, it took 21 days for them to realize that there was mockery and they made fun of judicial system, shame on those people who planed this. we still support Roopesh Shetty and this was the best Tulu film I have watched so far.
