Sky is the Limit - வானமே எல்லை

Seems Tamizh Muthalvar has decided to shower concessions on the film industry without any limits….

Couple of weeks back, I mentioned about the latest trend of chasing for attractive tamil titles, to cover the audience in a different way. Almost 100% of the movies which are being announced nowadays, are following the trend. Obviously, they don’t want to miss the concession bus.

Few days back, the Muthalvar announced concessions for old movies too… the film community was happy with this as well.

The point which was always irking me was the thin line which they may draw on couple of titles. For example, take the titles with some personalities’ names. How do they judge the origin of a name, now that the names have become universal by adapting from different cultures?

As it was lingering in my mind, the gossips have started coming out as to whether the two top movies of the Tamil new year will go for name change. They are none other than Sivaji & Dasavatharam. After so much of publicity around them, if they go for a name change because of the interpretations of the new rules, it will definitely sound funnier to the outside states.

In the near future, there will be some good demand for the tamil scholars to vouch the authenticity & origin of certain titles like ‘Mahesh’ or ‘Ramesh’…. Once they are dried up, we may end up having some more interesting titles like ‘Kuppan’ ‘Suppan’ … the day is not very far.

Anyhow, we can wait and watch how far it goes on like this….

BTW.. how come Minister Stalin is not going for a name change still?

I can't see anything but populism here. Btw, how they decide if "pronouns" and names are Tamil ?

Rather than wasting tax payer money on such trivial things, MK should concentrate on the larger problems plaguing the state.

Vinesh.. they have already closed one eye.. so they won't be bothered all those names.

Arvind.. No time at home. If it is outside, I'm getting enough time to blog something like this.. what else to do??

Cogito.. This shouldn't be even called as populist measure.. this doesn't benefit the mass ultimately in a positive way.. the benefits goes to a particular community (film) at tax payer's expenses..
