  • Only thing which we need to appreciate with TR is his confidence... and hope that 'Veerasamy' will click...

  • kaps, heard somewhere this : asked once why he keeps continuing to make such films, TR's answer, "you are not my target audience. mine are the ones who sit & whistle to my dialogs in village touring talkies" or some such. the same applies to most kollywood movies, i suppose.

  • @Ram,
    I don't think people can digest Veerasamy

    @Arvind,
    I guess there is more money to be made in multiplexes and big theatres in Tier I & Tier II cities. Touring talkies in villages can't provide so much money to keep TR running.

  • Yes Kaps, that's the new strategy in these pirated VCD/DVD days. Most money is made within the first weekend (as most films get released on a Friday) / week. Guys like TR, Sathyaraj know this but they also know that people in Tier I/II can't digest them anymore. Their strategy hence is to act in very low-budget films which would make most of their collections in village / 'C' centres.

  • What happened to some TV Program in (i think Vijay TV) which our TR used to host? I remember seeing some episode where he cried on hearing some woman's sob story...

  • I always believed TR's sustainable market is bacause he obviously has his own fans for whom his movie outings are a godsend treat.

    Tacky dialogues, exaggerated actions, over-the-top performances, a galaxy of mind-boggling colourised outfits...these are for the back benchers (pardon if this sounds a tad politically uncorrect)- who wolf whistle at every TR swagger. He rightfully makes movies for his target audience. Should he contemplate tackling the slightly "high-brow" youth or NRI market, he then has his protege Chimpu to utilise.

    It is all but an undertaking to make the cash-register ring...it was never about the fine art of aesthetic visual experience called movie-making.
