In recent days Kollywood makes big strides with small films. The real life meets emotional aspirations on imaginary grounds. As per Mr. KB “There is tremendous depth in the way characters come alive in the recently released movies”. For instance, in the recently released ‘Pasanga’ where father is awakened in early hours of morning by the sound of his son studying hard. He makes him a cup of coffee and encourages the child for healthy competition. So also in ‘Kunguma Poovum Konjum Puravum’ in which heroine was chased out of the house by her mother-in- law, waits at the bus stop with her grandmother for the hero to come and claim her. As hours pass, she tells her grandmother “let us wait; I am sure he will come” and grandmother quietly agrees with a wealth of emotions on her lined face. Here is a woman who understands what love is.
Mr. Sasikumar, Director of ‘Subramaniapuram’ says “we have had such ‘close to life’ situations in the films of Bharathiraja and K. Balachander .We are rediscovering the buried treasures now. Mr. Pandiraja, Director of ‘Pasanga’ is of different view. According to him “what is satisfying is that unknown and ordinary actors have been able to come across powerfully to the audience.” Sasikumar agrees and adds “it is doubtful whether we could have had such results with established actors.
“This trend may be welcome, but there are challenges” Ameer cautions. According to him “every country reflects its culture: barring Kerala movies Indian movies are neither escapism nor true art. He also cautions the hard mentality of the directors. Every director should follow cinema graph unique to story line. If you copy climax scene from popular movies or test the emotional level of audience too much, you may not score with people or box-office.
