The director in the movie tries to explain the tragedies occurred only because of dam breaking in the human history and the innumerable loss of lives and properties due to the fury of controlled water.
The Tamil Nadu government which already has a dispute over the 'Mullaperiyar' dam with Kerala misunderstood to have linked this with the movie.
In-fact the Mullaiperiyar dam constructed some 116 years ago is too old to hold the huge currents of the water in it and it is a strong and permanent threat to millions of people of Kerala. Even the geographical condition of the area with frequent tremors and earth quakes is very much a concern to a large number of people of Kerala State.
So there is a strong opinion of the public that something should be done immediately to find a solution to this terror without having mere parochial or political mileage.
