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 with one.
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.
