Several netizens took to social media and shared their review of the film ‘2018’.
Malayalam movie ‘2018’ ‘The Kerala Story’ starring Adah Sharma in the lead role stirred up debate, with Kerala Chief Minister Pinyari Vijayan accusing the creators of inciting hatred and religious polarization. A Muslim outfit had earlier offered a reward of Rs 1 crore to anyone who could refute the “allegations” made in the film “The Kerala Story,” which tells the tale of 32,000 women who left the state and joined the extremist group ISIS.
