When Superstar's Enthiran was released in 2010, one thing that excited many fans more than the second time collaboration between Shankar and Rajinikanth was the fact that Enthiran was arguably the first fully fledged science-fiction movie Tamil cinema had witnessed.
While Enthiran was a high budget movie that involved famed stars, Vishnu's upcoming movie Indru Netru Naalai is a comparatively low budget film, but deals with the same genre, sci-fi.
The movie which is releasing this Friday(26th June) could be a gateway to sci-fi movies in Kollywood, made at an affordable price.
With a wave of change hitting Tamil cinema, this might be the right time for producers and directors to come up with such films(most often seen in Hollywood), for the audience are ready to embrace the change more than ever before.
Another low budget science fiction movie that entertained one and all in the recent past was Appuchi Gramam which was directed by Vi Anand.
While it is difficult to dish out movies like Enthiran at regular intervals due to financial constraints, it is definitely feasible for Tamil cinema to come up with unique conceptual movies to perhaps elevate the quality and educate its audience.
