Filmi village

What is a typical tamil film village? A village is used to have lot of mountains, rich green scenary, the guys should speak either madurai dialect or coimbatore gounder dialect and one big banyan tree. This is what we were forced to beleive by the directors like, soundarajan , r.v.udayakumar, k.s.ravi kumar. Thanks to thangar bachchan, lingusamy, and bala. we could be able to see other kinds of villages from south arcot , tanjavur and trichy districts. Lingusamy seems to favour villages and other places near Kumbakonam which has some great traditional and fine old buildings and structures. I lived most of my life in Kumbakonam, and considerable years in chidambaram, i feel kumbakonam be my home town. But i like chidambaram and other places too for other reasons. Thats why i was happy to see films like azhagi, solla marantha kathai ,which were shot in south arcot and kadalur districts, particularly near panruti and neyveli. Here in these films, thangar captured these wonderful places , people, their language and senses wonderfully. I felt i was there in those places, because I had been there so many times. Hope thangar's next film as the tile says "chidambarathil oru appasami", will be shot entirely in chidambaram and the neighbouring places.

Thanks Udaya.

I saw your site on Kumbakonam. It is nice and informative. I would advice you to have some good CMS to manage the content over there. It will be easy for you to maintain the content, also it gives your site more professional look.

குரு பிரசாத்,

நீங்கள் சொல்வதும் நான் சொல்வதும் உண்மை , ஆனால் இதை பற்றி மற்ற பொதுவாக ஏன் கேள்வி எழவில்லை என தெரியவில்லை. சினிமா என்றில்லை பொதுவாக கல்வியிலும் மற்ற துறைகளிலும் பல ஏற்ற தாழ்வுகள் இருக்கவே செய்கின்றது.

நான் அது பற்றி எழுதியவை , நான் எழுதியது கடலூர் மாவட்டத்தையும் சேர்த்துதான்.
