Malayalam filmgoers, who have accepted Nivin Pauly starrer "Premam" as the best film of the year, have attacked filmmaker Kamal for his recent comments against the movie.

In a recent event, Kamal had criticised the Alphonse Puthren directorial, claiming it to be a misleading film for the youth. He had said that "Premam", which shows a relationship between a teacher and a student, will misguide the current generation.

However, fans of "Premam" were quick to attack saying Kamal does not have the right to comment on the matter as they also compared the director's popular movie "Mazhayethum Munpe", in which the lead actress is seen falling in love with her professor. 

"If actress Shruthi (Annie aka Chitra Shaji Kailas) can love her professor Nandakumar Varma (Mammootty) in Kamal's film 'Mazhayethum Munpe', what is wrong with George (Nivin) loving Malar miss (Sai Pallavi) in 'Premam'," asks an ardent fan of the latest film.

In his statement, Kamal had also mentioned that main actors in "Premam" taking alcohol to classrooms will lead the students in a bad way.

In response to this controversial statement by the director, some netizens countered asking what kind of message his film "Ayaal Kadha Ezuthuka Aanu" conveys, in which lead actor Mohanlal is portrayed as a drunkard.

They also attacked Kamal by giving example of his popular film "Swapnakood", in which Prithviraj's character Kunjunju is seen loving every girl he meets and later deserting them.
