  1. Romance in Tamil Cinema

    Selvaraghavan once said in an interview promoting his new film that he was going to show us what real love was because, in his opinion, all other Tamil films deceive us with filmy love stories. Then he went on to release Irandam Ulagam.

Tamil filmmakers have a weird habit of including romance in their films, regardless of necessity, for the sake of reaching out to a wider audience.

  2. O Kadhal Kanmani

    How beautiful will it be to see the world through Mani Ratnam and PC Sreeram’s eyes. A world where even melodrama puts a smile on one’s face. A world filled with love irrespective of age. A world where relationships are not filmy. A world filled with A R Rahman’s music and Vairamuthu’s lyrics. A world where normalcy is beautiful. This parallel universe is what I experienced in O Kadhal Kanmani.
