Director K Bhagyaraj, who spoke on this occasion compared Tamil cinema"s fate to the football match between Brazil and Korea. He said," Last night I watched the World Football match between Brazil and Korea on the TV. The Korea team was distressed. The people of Korea were looking sad. Today Tamil cinema"s fate is about the same… If we make films with new faces, we don"t get the theatres. It is very difficult to release small budgeted films. They are not giving theaters to these films."
