    Very true. There are so many movies which insults other professions , that dinn stop. Now that the movie is making crores , jealous ppl trying to mint money from here. There were many previous movies with vulgur languages used against women or sickening movies ,that time nobody cared.. Girgit is far more better than movies previously made.. some conspiracy going on to stop the film as its making huge waves .. creating history..

    What about Sarakari hiriya pratamika shale kasargod movie. Ananthnag sir did the role of lawyer which has hilarious comedy over lawyers . This is pure jealousy of Girgits success. Shame on Mangaluru lawyer association

    Wat about movies were other professionals are insulted like Police, IAS, Teachers or any other.. Are there no movies running over years.. Just a publicity stunt I feel or over smart advocates with no work..

    Misuse of power in hand. Use it where it's needed in social benefit.
