Kollywood has scored the fastest fifty for Tamil film releases. In 109 days (January 1 to April 19)of 2013, there have been a new record 53 releases.
Normally the number of releases crosses 50 only by May end or some years in early June. It clearly means this year may see the highest number of releases in Tamil.
However the quality of movies released has declined, as a lot of new films are being made by first timers with no practical experience in filmmaking. They are just doing it for the kick of making a film and having a good time.
Says Bhakthavalsalam, a trade analyst: “As Tamil releases increase by the week, their quality has declined. It has created audience apathy as substandard content and too many releases, are keeping the viewer’s away.”
