The Telangana High Court Green signal for the release of Ram Gopal Varma’s Murder Movie. Earlier, a district court in Nalgonda had issued a stay on the movie, after Amrutha Pranay’s family approached the court. The Murder movie is based on the caste killing that took place two years ago in Miryalguda of Telangana district. Amrutha’s husband, Pranay, a 24-year-old Dalit man, was hacked to death by a hired killer. The killer was hired by his father-in-law Maruthi Rao, who had refused to accept his marriage with his daughter.
However, after the lower court issued a stay order, Ram Gopal Varma approached the High Court with an appeal. On Friday, the filmmaker RGV took to Twitter to announce that the High Court had cleared the movie’s release. “VERY HAPPY to inform that our good intentions of making the film MURDER have been rightly understood by the honorable COURT. Details will be given once the order is with us ..THANKING EVERYONE,” the filmmaker tweeted.

According to sources, RGV’s Murder movie can be released under one condition, that the movie should not use the names of any of the victims or the family members, including those of Amrutha, Pranay, or Maruthi Rao. Ram Gopal Varma’s advocate reportedly told the court that if any of the names are mentioned, they would make necessary changes accordingly.
As earlier reported in TNM, Balaswamy, Pranay’s father had approached the court in the month of June and had sought a ban on the film. He also said that photos of Pranay and his daughter-in-law Amrutha were being used without their consent. The cast of the movie resembles the real-life characters of Amrutha, Pranay, and Maruthi Rao, which is evident from the posters and the trailers released by the director.
