In the wake of growing moral policing, Malayalis seems to have picked their sides. While a good section of the crowd supports moral policing, there is a growing unrest among people who are questioning the need of such an act and wants to know what joy they derive out of it. Arunsol felt it was time to answer that question. Arun, who played an important role in Sanal Kumar Sasidharan's controversial movie Sexy Durga, came up with a short film that throws light on the harrowing act of moral policing. The short film Memories of Morality released on YouTube just two days ago has already become a hot topic. The short film is being shared widely for its raw portrayal of moral policing. The film begins with a person reading a news about the latest case of suicide due to ‘Sadhachara police’. The story slowly begins to unfold as he finds out the English translation for the word ‘Sadhacharam' and then catches hold of the link to a video shot by the moral policing gang.

“This is a message against all the moral policing happening around us,” says Arun, who wrote and directed the film. “Moral policing is spreading dangerously here. That, along with a few incidents that hurt personally, I decided to make this short film with a few of my friends.” Also a photographer, Arun was the Director of Photography of Memories of Morality. Sharing his experience while trying to find the cast for the film, he says, “Since it deals with this topic we struggled to find a female lead for the film. No girl or even artists were  willing to be part of it. Finally, a student from the Kerala University agreed and we have been getting great reviews about her acting.” “It is a small film and everyone associated with it are new to acting. I am happy that people are giving me good feedback.”
