Is Tamil cinema setting a new trend by producing more of low budget movies and introducing new faces into the industry? The answer could be a yes and a no. In the past few years we have noticed that many movies have released with new faces and new directors. Due to budget constrains many directors and producers look for a new face. Didn’t the movie Roja become a blockbuster with a new face Aravindsamy and the Oscar winner A.R.Rahman and Oru thalai Raagam a box office hit with all new faces, producer, artist, a new director T. Rajendar or Paruthiveeran with a new face Karthi Sivakumar? It is indeed a yes.

But there are many films that have failed miserably at the box office in spite of having experienced faces and director. Similarly there are also many low budget movies with new faces and directors that have also failed at the box office
Karthi
because the industry took a big hit by the arrival of corporate companies into the film industry as they were unable to compete with them in terms of mass advertisements and promotions.

Now- a -days low budget movies have become a trend setter and have been well received among movie buffs and the production companies are said to have tripled their profits. The TFPC (The Tamil film Producers Council) grant relief has boomed the small budget film industry where around nine films were selected and were provided with Rs.2 lakhs each as a relief. The movies like Eeram and Ambasamuthiram Ambani which were considered low budget films with minimal advertising faired well and received positive reviews. Thus whether it is a low or a high budget movie, audience always appreciate a film with good story and direction. Let the industry keep the trend going!!!!!!
