Looks like director Ameer‘s voice for the Eelam Tamils will go beyond stage speeches. The director, who was one of the vociferous speakers about the plight of Tamils in Sri Lanka, has already planned a script on their lives.
Despite Tamils and Tamil cinema’s support for the Tamils in Sri Lanka, which is a big market for our movies, only two movies have dealt with their plight: Mani Ratnam’s ‘Kannathil Muthamittaal‘ and Bala’s ‘Nandha‘. But director Ameer, who is completing his ‘Yogi‘ currently, has decided on making a movie about these Tamils.
Having kept the script ready, it is now learnt that the director plans to call the film ‘Kilinochi’. Another director who plans to make a movie on the Lankan ethnic crisis is director Bharathiraja.
