Though many believed that the film's over-hype might've caused a
ubiquitous disappointment among fans and critics, some welcomed the
director's move to helm a fantasy flick.
So how important is a fantasy movie to an industry like
Kollywood? Well, in my opinion fantasy movies can go a long way in
making Tamil cinema more formidable among its competitors.
Such movies can allure its audience by taking them into a whole
new world. After all, an excellent movie is the one which makes you
forget about your surroundings and movies belonging to this genre
can achieve that feat with ease, if executed properly.
Fantasy films and Tamil cinema were once close allies as this
film industry has produced some wonderful movies that falls under
this genre in the past.
With all the technological advancement, such films were expected
to flourish in Kollywood. Unfortunately, nothing of that sort has
happened in the last decade until Chimbu Deven decided to come up
Puli has not lived up to its expectations
alright, but hopefully that should not defer filmmakers from
indulging in such ambitious projects in the future.
