Interval blocks in Indian cinema are an important aspect of a movie as they can enhance the overall cinematic experience of audiences.
This being the case, let us have a look at some of the best interval blocks Tamil cinema has produced in the recent past (in descending order).
Maya is one of the best horror flicks of Kollywood in recent times. While the whole movie manages to spook you to death, the interval block where the character dies inside a movie can be disturbing to even strongest of minds.
Maya was directed by Ashwin Saravanan and stars Nayantara, Aari and Amzath Khan in main roles. While cinematography was handled by Sathyan Sooryan, music was composed by Ron Ethan Yohaan.
Directed by Venkat Prabhu, Mankatha had an interesting interval block, for the ruthlessness of a baddie comes to light then. Interestingly, the baddie here also happens to be the protagonist.
The film's music was scored by Yuvan Shankar Raja, Karthik Raja, Premji Amaren and Bhavatharini. Camera was cranked by Sakthi Saravanan.
A movie like Thuppakki can serve as an example on how a film's first half should be concluded. The interval block, where Ilayathalapathy Vijay says "am waiting", had perfectly set up the mood of audiences for the latter half.
Directed by AR Murugadoss, the film had its music composed by Harris Jayaraj and cinematography was taken care by Santosh Sivan.
Thani Oruvan had an intriguing interval block. After all, how many movies has the audacity to showcase the antagonist as the winner by the end of the first half?
Thani Oruvan was helmed by M Raja. While the music was scored by 'Hip Hop Tamizha' Aadhi, the camera was handled by Ramji.
Theri had the best interval block in recent times. Lots of emotions were involved during that conversation between Ilayathalapathy Vijay & Mahendran.
The film was directed by Atlee and had music by GV Prakash Kumar. George C Williams had cranked the camera.
