Tamil cinema is getting better every year and is definitely in the right path, not only it does well in international film festivals, but also in national festivals and events. Recent accolade for tamil movies is that in the recent National Awards it has bagged considerable number of awards including for the best performing hero and heroine roles, best choreographer and best director categories. Deviating slowly from its normal action and masala kind of movies tamil cinema is seeing a lot of character oriented movies and some classy performances. The directors and producers have finally started to realize the importance of good story and reasonable gimmicks.
Tamil cinema as they say has a blend of classy Malayalam and mass telugu features in it. Its no doubt that Kodambakkam has once again turned the heads of national and international film audiences. Recent Rajinikanth film “Endhiran” or “The Robot” has created records of all sorts in India and has seen some good international box office as well. Though it is not exactly a sci-fi movie it was received well by Rajinikanth fans and tamil film audiences in India and throughout the world. Let us see how tamil movies flares from now on.
Recently in an international movie festival Vikram’s Raavanan movie received warm welcome by Cinema directors throughout the world. Vikram was also conferred with an honorary doctorate degree. Some of the big budget tamil movies waiting for release this summer are “Mankatha” starring Ajith Kumar, Nanban, a remake of Hindi movie, starring Vijay and an unnamed Kamal hassan movie. rajinikanth’s Rana has been postponed after Rajinis ill health and is scheduled to start after Rajinikanth returns from Singapore getting well.
Director Shankar one of the very famous tamil cinema directors has first started to work on a remake film starring Vijay, Jiiva, and Srikanth named as “Nanban”. Shankar told though Nanban is a remake film we can expect lot of twists in that movie which has been altered for the tamil audiences.
Another rumor spreading in the kodambakkam now is that Vijay is set to do a cameo role in Ajith’s Mankatha. But finally the grapevine is that there is another artist called Vijay who actually acts in Mankatha and not our tamil cinema hero Vijay. Pics of Vijay and Ajit posing together in the sets of Mankatha and Velayudham shows some good signs of encouragement amongst both vijay and Ajith fans that those two icons are close friends and no foul playing between the duo.
