Director Balasekaran believes that cinema should be constructively exploited to convey worthy messages to the youth and his films are always considered a 'message movie'. He shot to fame with 'love today' with Vijay in the lead role and subsequently 'thulli thirinda kaalam' happened with Arunkumar.
Currently he is back in Kollywood after completing four Telugu films in Andhra Pradesh. Arya, his current Tamil venture has Maddy and Bhavna in the lead roles. This film is almost complete sans a few post production chores and will hit the screen next month.
While comparing the themes of his films he says he had condemned the indolent and lackadaisical behavior of unemployed youth in thulli thirinda kaalam. But in love today he had talked about achieving something before getting trapped in love. In Arya, he has given powerful signals to the youth community that violence is not the solution to any crisis. He adds, "I firmly believe that future of India rests with the youth population and all my films target only this audience. I use the medium of cinema to get across good messages to them".
