Vijaya T. Rajendar has opined that making films to suit the tastes of today’s youths is becoming quite a tough task. “There were times in the past when all kinds of films managed to do well at the box-office. Nowadays, though, the youth are very clear as to what kind of films they want to see and what they don’t want at all.
“In such a scenario, the job of the film-maker becomes more difficult. Entertainment appears to be the focus of today’s films. Even sentimental films don’t do that well at the box-office as the innumerable tear-jerking television serials dole out more emotions than one can possibly handle. Audiences don’t flock to theatres to watch films which drain them out emotionally.
“Youths form major portion of the audience who come to theatre to spend quality time. They tend to like films which have equal doses of heroism, comedy and romance. For example, last year’s ‘Kalavaani’ by Sargunam was an ideal film: it had a little bit of everything and was quite enjoyable.
“My Oru Thalai Kaadhal, which is in the making, is also one such film. I’m sure it would appeal to all sections of the audience. Hard-work always pays its dividends. Whatever success I have achieved over the y ears is only because of my hard work and determination, which has kept me going till now,” concludes TR, who can act, edit, compose music, write lyrics, dialogues, stories and screenplays besides producing and directing films.
