Priyansh Ha |Mar 05, 2019

After 18 years being absence, Bollywood actress Isha Koppikar is coming back to Tamil cinema saying that nothing has changed in the industry.


After 18 years of being away from Tamil movies, Bollywood actress Isha Koppikar is coming back to the down South audiences with SK14. This sci-fi film is a production of Sivakarthikeyan and director R Ravi Kumar. Talking about the return after several years, the actress claimed that Tamil cinema is remaining the same after all those years. Such a strong claim of the actress while she doesn’t even know if Ajith Kumar, her favourite actor is still working in the industry or not

Right after Isha’s statement, Ajith fans have put up an online fight against the actress. She is unaware that her favourite actor is still taking control of the K-Town. His latest film even knocked down Rajinikanth's film in box office battle. Fortunately, the backlash wasn’t too much intense as Ajith fans are busy celebrating the success of his movie Viswasam. He is still there, being more fabulous than ever. 

Isha once-favourite actor Ajith Kumar is still doing well in the industry and hitting triumph with his latest film.

According to her, Bollywood is doing well with new-age cinema for example Gully Boy or Vicky Donor’s films. Meanwhile, Tamil cinema has been sticking to stereotypes and afraid of making changes.

Tamil Cinema Has No Heroine-centric Film?

We all know that Tamil cinema has enough of women-centric films these days. It’s too soon to say that they have attained gender equality. Tamil films, however, has come a long way since her last movie Narasimha released in 2001.

From Samantha to Keerthy Suresh and Nayanthara, there are more and more actresses getting involved in the industry. In addition to that, producers are pumping money into women-centric films. It was just last Friday when 90 ML staring Oviya had struck a chord of the Tamil moralists by recklessly portraying modern women’s desires.

Aviya starrer 90 ML has tested the limit of women-centric films in Tamil cinema.

Along with active actresses, Tamil cinema has witnessed the rise of female directors like Laksmi Ramakrishnan or Sudha Kongara. Sudha is currently working on a film with the leading star Suriya. Did Isha see this 18 years ago?

“No Experimentation, The Same Kind Of Stories”

Isha’s conclusion might be the result of the Tamil films which are dubbed on Hindi channels like Muni and Singam. Only a few Tamil movies were able to reach the requirement of broadcasting on those channels.

In facts, Tamil cinema has been refined thanks to the release of several movies like Paruthiveeran, Aaranya Kaandam, Aruvi, Naan Kadavul, Andavan Kattalai, Peranbu, and Aramm. Meanwhile, the veteran actor Rajinikanth even made an exception collaborating with young directors like Pa Ranjith in Kabali and Kaala and Karthik Subbaraj in Petta.

“New-age Cinema Seems To Have Flown Right Over Tamil Cinema”

Every movie-goer knows Tamil is one of the hotspots in the new-age cinema trend in India, apart from Malayalam. If Bollywood has just released Gully Boy early this year, Pariyerum Perumal has put up the new monument of Tamil new-age cinema since last year.

The time of Ayushmann Khurrana is over as the audience is going crazy with Vijay Sethupathi's versatile films. In case you didn’t know, Isha, Shubh Mangal Saavdhan is the Hindi remake of the Tamil film Kalyana Samayal Sadham.
