Take a look:
The Pippa controversy
While the film is going strong, it got into a controversy after moviegoers disliked AR Rahman’s rendition of the Bengali poet Nazrul Islam’s patriotic song Karar Oi Louho Kopat. After receiving flak, the makers issued a lengthy statement saying that they understood the audience’s emotional attachment to the original composition. Hence, they sincerely apologized for hurting sentiments or causing unintended distress to the public even though their intention was to pay homage to the cultural significance of the song.
The biographical war film is based on the life of Captain Balram Singh Mehta who along with his siblings, fought during the Indo-Pakistani War of 1971. It is an adaptation of real-life events that took place during the Battle of Garibpur. Pippa is directed by Raja Krishna Menon and also stars Mrunal Thakur, Priyanshu Painyuli, Soni Razdan, Inaamulhaq, and many others. It was dropped on November 10 on Amazon Prime Video.
