Are cinematic liberties permitted in historical dramas?

When a thread is taken out of history to give it a silver screen version, can the script be altered for the commercial viability of the venture? We bet that this is one of the key challenges faced by filmmakers. We have seen how people reacted every time a period drama was announced. Take the case of Padmaavat- people revolted to the idea. The same holds true for Sye Raa. History says that he revolted against the British for his personal issues and not for the spirit of nationalism, as the film showed. Similarly, people were intrigued with many ideas shown in Mamangam. But for dramatic purposes, taking a few liberties is inevitable. But, filmmakers should exercise caution in not distorting facts.
