Writer Sujatha, in his

Kamal & Sujatha
Writer Sujatha, in his column Katrathum Petrathum for Anandha Vikatan, remarks that it’s been 25 years since he and Kamalhassan had met first. He briefs about his recent chat with Kamal about the digital cinema happenings for Tamil films. Kamal’s latest movie Sandiyar, which is now put on hold due to the opposition from caste based politics, was supposed to be shot as a digital film only. Already P.C.Sriram, the ace cinematographer, is shooting his latest flick Vaanam Vasappadum as a digital film. This film is based on a Sujatha’s novel.

Kamalhassan’s forethought extends to a time when there would be many small cinema interest clubs, which will feature movies that are based on the common interest. And there wouldn’t be this normal formula of songs, comedy and fight into the same movie. Instead movies will become diversified by genre. And each genre of movies will cater to a small section of this large cinema-going crowd.

Kamalhassan who was recently in Cannes film festival had released few of his movies in Wireless Fidelity (Wi-Fi) format. This format is becoming more popular in the west as it makes cinema watching a less tedious one. As he remembers, when the steady cam was introduced there weren’t many who were ready to use it. Steady cam, as we know is a camera that could be tied to one’s body and would help him to move around and film. This would make the shots more realistic when compared to a fixed camera. Kamal and Sujatha’s joint effort Vikram, which flopped in the box- office, was the first movie to use the steady cam technology. But now after those experimental films, every movie uses steady cam technology. He is very confident that similarly, digital films will also become the need to the day in near future.

  1. This only brings back to the point that both Sujata and Kamal are great thinkers in this industry and they can work together to show the world that we can take movies which are totally different and highly imaginative.

  15. Hi!
    In an recent article in Vikatan,you have said that maniratinam was ready to make ponniyin selvan and he stopped it due to some reasons.
    Why can’t you persuade him to make the movie?

    What is your next book?

  16. I am a post doc fellow in Lisbon, Portugal. I tried to read Kumudham on line. I have been provided the password by Kumudham.com. I could read the headlines alone. But, I could not read the contents as tamil font does not appear. I tried to download the font, as given in the site, but it doesn,t work. I have asked for a clarification regarding this to Kumudham.com, but they have not responded. Please clarify.
    With regards
