Rajesh and Nupur Talwar, the dentist couple and parents of the 14-yr old aarushi who was found dead in her bedroom in 2008, are in jail. The couple are convicted for murder and destruction of evidence and the case is sub judice. The 2008 double murder case, as it has been called has attracted both public attention and media glare as a bizarre who dunit. From books to films, every attempt has been made to recreate the story. A new film titled Talwar, due for release tomorrow is the latest attempt.  But the new film has sparked a major debate on whether films should be made on cases that are still under the active consideration of the judiciary. Remember the talwars have filed an appeal against their conviction and the decision of the special CBI Court. The matter is pending before the allahabad high court. Viewers might recall that the Talwars were very agitated and moved court seeking a stay on a similar film last year. So why have the Talwars not objected to this latest venture? A bollywood director says its because the film is a favourable portrayal. The question then is obvious: will the latest movie undermine the fair pursuit of justice?
