Thangar Bachchan is adept in bringing out
the finer emotions of people belonging to
the lower strata of society on the celluloid
in a lucid and well structured manner. His
earlier films azhagi, solla maranda kadai,
chidambarathil oru appa samy are standing
examples of this
director's obstinacy in presenting films sans the usual quotients of main stream cinema. His recent creation 'Pallikoodam' was sent to Cannes film festival and it currently figures in the list of movies that are short listed for an award.
While talking about this, the proud and happy director
says, "After a long interval, a Tamil film which
has earned the reputation of getting short listed for
an award at the Cannes is Pallikoodam. Veyil and Paruthiveeran
have been sent merely for screening and not for competitive
purposes". He also mentioned that Pallikoodam has
been inspired from his novel 'kalavaadiya pozhudugal'
written a few years back.
