Court lets 'Water' flow

24 August 2005 | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

NEW DELHI -- An application seeking an order to prevent director Deepa Mehta's Water from opening the Toronto International Film Festival was rejected Tuesday in the Delhi High Court. However, the court did issue a summons for Mehta to appear for a Nov. 8 hearing. The application was filed by Anuradha Dutta, a filmmaker who claims that Water -- the culmination of a trilogy that Mehta started with 1996's Fire then followed with Earth -- is based on the English version of her Bengali-language film Shei Shmoy (Those Days), itself based on a novel by Sunil Gangopadhaya. The court's summons notice to Mehta also follows on from a case filed by the helmer in 2000, when she filed a suit seeking a declaration from the court that Water was not infringing the Copyright Act and that the film was not based on the Bengali novel by Gangopadhaya or its English translation. »
