Tamil cinema and reality
As I sat and watched some Tamil cinema a while ago, a thought flashed across my mind. Their movies, most of them are so raw, so earthy... very much close to the reality of the time. Their actors and contexts are shot in real life situations or made to appear very much down to earth. No make up, no much of NRI stuff... It may appear as though the producers and directors are primarily making movies for the low middle class and the working class group. But their acting and story line portrayal, the dialogues and messages conveyed are truly very powerful and sharp. In Hindi cinema, there are very few such portrayals... earthy, realistic and packed with a powerful message.
