Removal of data by 69.47.228.36[edit]

Edit by 69.47.228.36 has removed an information on Kochi as the base of Malayalam movie industry that existed here for a long time in South Indian film industry page. The information was also supported by plenty of citations. This is part of a recent attempt by the same IP address 69.47.228.36 and a few others to insert false statement on Thiruvananthapuram as one of the centres in Malayalam cinema page. There is a [Talk (Click to see)] going on in Malayalam cinema page. One can notice that the same IP number 69.47.228.36 is the one who started inserting false statement. 69.47.228.36 and his company (183.90.103.156, 203.117.37.213 and user Aarem) finds that the false statement they want to insert contradicts with not only news reports widely available in media, but also information in other related wiki pages. So they have started editing these info that existed in wiki pages for a long time and well substantiated with citations. Basically this seems to be a gang working to glorify Thiruvananthapuram by any means. Prathambhu (talk) 04:20, 21 February 2013 (UTC)

Film industry of Kerala is not centred at only one place as in other states. The production facilities are more in Trivandrum and preferred shooting location is Kochi. Kerala Chalachitra Academy is in Trivandrum. The Kerala State Film Development Corporation and the International Film Festival of Kerala are also in Trivandrum. The Association of Malayalam Movie Artists is also headquartered in Trivandrum. In short, the industry is scattered in Kerala and not centered only at Kochi. Cheers, -- Aarem (Talk) 06:50, 21 February 2013 (UTC)

Reply for the above is given in [Malayalam cinema Talk (Click to see)]. The above user Aarem is not able to provide any news citations proving his claim. According to Aarem's "logic" Goa will be the centre of Indian cinema because IFFI is held there. Or Pune must be hub of Bollywood because Pune Film Institute is located there.

In fact all the news reports spread across a spectrum of independent printed media over last 7 years report that Kochi is the hub of Malayalam cinema. These reports are given in citations. So Aarem and a group of IPs (possible sock puppets) edit out data existed in this page for ages, along with citations, to suit his designs in Malayalam cinema page. Recorded also for the notice of Administrators. ChroniclerSanjay (talk) 20:31, 21 February 2013 (UTC)

Hi, Malayalam cinema is not centered around one region, either Kochi or Thiruvananthapuram. Both places have production facilities and studios with significant presence in the malayalam film industry. Claiming based on certain points without statistic figures is not good for a healthy information. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 208.95.148.1 (talk) 20:17, 22 February 2013 (UTC)

Nobody claimed it. It is reported in all media reports given in the citations. It is clearly reported in many reports that Kodambakkam and Thiruvananthapuram was the base of Malayalam cinema in the past and in the present era it is Kochi. Those reports give detailed interviews of many important stakeholders of Malayalam film industry including actors, technical persons including those originally from Thiruvananthapuram. More detailed discussions are available at Malayalam cinema Talk (Click to see). Prathambhu (talk) 04:32, 23 February 2013 (UTC)
