Kollywood, the world of magic which ‘had has and will’ make a no-where man to a billionaire and vice-versa is going “Gaali”-wood these days. With nearly 3 to 4 films releasing every Friday there isn’t even a single good movie to watch.
One of the finest cine industries in the world is living in a very poor situation (of course not monetarily) . The standard of the films made these days have become very poor. Even most expected directors and actors fail to deliver what they are capable of. With more than 50 films been released in the first 9 months of the years, not even a single movie made an impact. For instance directors like Mysskin, Chakri toleti, Shankar gave a huge disappointment to the audience.
A very few movies like Dhoni, Vazhakku en 18/9, nanban(to be appreciated only for the choice to remake) made us visit the theatres this year. But neither the money invested on films nor the cast of these films were compromised. ‘With satellite rights, music rights and various other means, which fills the investors and actors accounts, are the industry people becoming less concerned about the standard of the films made’ , is one of the question that I want to ask to some of these people.
Also, personally I feel every aspect in a movie other than cinematography is being let down. Especially when it comes to the selection of heroes and a script. You should watch Ohh la la la, Udumban, rattinam if you differ in your views. What all it takes to make these movies is nothing but a decent cam and an average looking actor. If the script revolves around a village, even the need for ‘average’ look is ignored. Our industry which was once gave away films like Kannathil Muthamittal, Mozhi, Guna should be very much ashamed of what its doing now. When actors are targeted, they pass the blame on to the directors who inturn point at the producers and distributors.
With movies like NEP, Vishwaroopam, Kochadaiyan lined up for the second half of the year, lets hope.
