The Kannada Film Writers Association headed by dialogue writer cum director Nanjunda has cleared the hassles for ‘Govindayanamaha’ that is laced with plagiarism controversy.

On a complaint filed by Avnandre Avnu director that the film ‘Govindayanamaha’ has lifted his film script the Karnataka Film Directors Association writer’s wing viewed both the films and set aside the allegations of Venugopal as far from truth.

On a complaint and DVD of ‘Avnandre Avne’ director cum writer Nanjunda, V Nagendra Prasad, MS Patil and Malavalli Saikrishna watched the film and submitted a report. The suicide attempt is found in both the film but that does not make it as a copying. There are many films with suicide attempts it is stated.

According to Nanjunda the film Avnandre Avne starring Naveen Mayoor,Nandeetha, Kangala, Biradar and others was screened only in Kalpana theatre in 2006 in the morning show. There is no record of reviews too of this film. When the debut director Pawan Wadeyar and KA Suresh producer of Govindayanamaha came with a complaint to Directors Association we thought it as a right move to think on a solution. The allegations are not correct from Venugopal who is now director of ‘Jai Hindi’ Kannada cinema.

The only commonality is the photo of Naveen Mayoor that was used in ‘Govindayanamaha’. The films with original scripts should not be troubled like this. When over 70 percent of people connected to cinema are not ready to hear to the original scripts this type of trouble is uncalled says Nanjunda. He vouches for the system prevailing in Tamil Nadu and Andhra Pradesh to exist in Kannada cinema. The writer thoughts are so well protected in other languages he opined.

Pawan Wadeyar baffled with this type of comment stated that he was in PUC when the film got released. I have no idea about the contents of this film. I sought the help of Directors Association and it has given right justice he thanks.

For lacing such a controversy to ‘Govindayanamaha’ I do not keep quiet. I would file a case against Venugopal and he should be banned. Nowhere the failure inspires. This allegation made me sleepless. He should ask for public apology. Producer of Govindayanamaha KA Suresh was very firm on his decisions.

Meanwhile the film Govindayanamaha is very good in 96 theatres all over Karnataka.
