Gone are those days when lip locks were considered taboo in Tamil films. Many films in Kollywood have started to come up with kissing scenes and most importantly it is being received in the right spirit by the audience.
Though lip lock scenes are surfacing often in recent times, kissing scenes in older Tamil films have always existed but only in limited number. Ulaganayagan Kamal Haasan, made it popular through his movies like Punnaigai Mannan and Hey Ram.
Of late, many movies are showcasing lip lock scenes, a trend which has existed in Hollywood for decades. Though the number of lip locks in Tamil films have increased over the years, it can be safely said that we have a long way to go in depicting bold scenes.
Often our filmmakers avoid such scenes, fearing that it might repel families from watching their movies. Brave directors like K Balachander have not fazed by these factors as they have always dished out bold scenes in their movies if required.
