Angamaly Diaries review: Real, honest and gripping

Director Lijo Jose Pellissery has posted a video on Facebook where he mentions about an incident which to him is ‘moral policing’.

According to him the vehicle which was carrying the artistes from Angamaly Diaries was stopped by the police and a senior officer talked angrily to the team. If the cop had looked at the posters of the film, he could have realized that they were actors from the film, says the director.

One of the cops even asked an actor if he had plans to add a ‘Pulsar’ tag to his name! He was evidently referring to the recent kidnapping incident of an actress, where the main accused is a man called ‘Pulsar Suni’

However, there are reports of the version from the police which says that the vehicle was fully covered with posters from the film, which is not legally allowed. The team was allowed to continue with the tour after they were identified as actors from Angamaly Diaries.
