Black money: Pichaikaran got it right

When Prime Minister Narendra Modi annnounced that Rs 500 and Rs 1000 will be invalid, the film-lovers in Kollywood were reminded of the dialogue from Vijay Antony starrer Pichaikkaran released this March.

A film written and directed by Sasi featured Vijay Antony in the lead. It was released in March 2016. This character who plays a beggar gives his gyaan on why 500 and 1000 rupee notes should be declared illegal to prevent black money circulation and corruption.

When asked how to eradicate poverty in India, he says, 'The poverty in our country is because of bribe money, corruption money, and tax evasion. All the money that's earned and hidden like this is in the denomination of 500 and 1000. Only 20 per cent of people in the country use 500 and 1000 rupee notes.

The rest of the 80 per cent have one or two 1000 rupee notes and are searching for coins. If it's a 1000 rupee note, even 100 crores can be contained in two big suitcases. If it is 100 rupees or 50 rupees, a big house will be needed! It won't be safe'.
