The sword hanging over the heads of ‘character’ actors; He knows about the Hema Commission

Published

on

One after another allegations are rising in Malayalam cinema. And the protest against the non-release of the report of the Hema Commission appointed by the state government to study the problems faced by women in the film industry. Two years after the report was submitted, the question of why the key facts have not been clarified remains unanswered. Until now, the government has been hiding behind the technicalities of whether it is a committee or a commission in the face of revelations that violence against women is on the rise in the Malayalam film industry.

But now the government has changed its mind again. The government has called a meeting to discuss the Hema Committee report. The meeting will be chaired by Culture Minister Saji Cherian on May 4. The only thing is that Mee Too had to rise up against actor and producer Vijay Babinu from Malayalam cinema to make another comeback on this issue from the government side. All organizations in the film industry, including Amma, MACTA, FEFCA, WCC, Film Chamber and Producers Association, have been invited to attend the government meeting. Meanwhile, Law Minister P Rajeev said that the WCC had asked the WCC not to release the HOMA report, but the WCC rejected it.

Hema Commission

The government has instructed the commission to submit a report within six months after talking to Malayalam filmmakers about the issue of women’s wages, work conditions and the exploitation they face. Accordingly, it took almost two years for the Commission to submit its 300 page report to Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan on December 31, 2019. The Women in Cinema Collective later demanded that the report be made public, but instead of releasing the report, the government set up another committee to study the commission’s recommendations.

Hema Commission Findings

The report was not released, however, and the commission found that there was a ‘casting couch’ within the film industry who wanted to have sex for the occasion. The committee also found that the use of alcohol and drugs was widespread in cinema sets. The committee recommended the formation of a tribunal to investigate all such omissions. The WCC also said it had high hopes for the committee’s report.

According to the Women’s Commission

According to a recent RTI, the government spent Rs 1,06,55,000 (Rs 1,655,000 crore) on the HOMA Commission from 2017 to 2020. According to records, Justice Hema, who chaired the commission, received Rs 1,03,22254 (one crore three lakh twenty two thousand two hundred and fifty four) ten times.
