Though the film directors are many there are those rare breed who create an iconic status for themselves with their works. Names such as K Vishwanath, K Balachander, Balu Mahendra fall into that genre. Among the new age filmmakers, the name of maverick Mani Ratnam also is included.
But the discussion happening right now is, how many of today’s teenagers really connect to Mani and his movies. Now that his new movie Ok Bangaram is gearing up to hit the screens, how much of positive response and craze will come from this generation’s youngsters. The cine pundits have given their judgement.
They say that those who are in their 30s, 40s will vote for Mani Ratnam because his films created that magic about a decade back. As for today’s generation, all those who are aged 13 and more, their attraction point would be the magnetic face beauty Nithya Menen. The film is due for release on April 17 so best of luck Mani!
