Do you think that the quality of audince is taking a downride nowadays. Films like T.D Dasan find it hard to get viewers wheras tamil inspired pokkiri raja has made lots of money. what do you think about this ?

what are the qualities that you expect in an actor ? in other words what makes a good actor.

Do you feel that a director can at max be as good as the script he gets. is it possible to make a good film with an avg script?

hi imran,
i think it was not the theme that was below ave, may be it was my capabilities as a director that was below average. i stil feel confident of the theme.
no mrityunjayam was no way connected to 1408. but it was based on a short story by satyjit ray. yet i dunno wat that film is...glad that u liked it.thx imaran

Thank you for answering me..Wishing you all success in your future endeavors..
hi kannan,
1.it was due to my sheer luck and personal relationship that i was called to do a film in kerala cafe. not on merit.i am so so glad that he chose me to be a part of it.
but fortunately i yet have no trouble from the industry, which has been always welcoming me . weather it is from the stars side or from the producer/ distributor side. for me my challenge is myself, to find a story and script that inspires me enough to go ahead...work mad on it..with ful passion.
2.of course malyalam films is really looking gud for past 6 months or so,and the whole of industry has to thank ranjith for bringing this change singlehandedly.this is my 17 th year in film profession,i shud say that i hav learned more things in last one year that in last 16 years, yes i am on a learning curve....down few years there are going to be lots of new screens in form of multiplexes, then the demand wil be more for number of films , which ultimately will translate into better films.
moreover i see lots of next gen youngsters with loads of talent, much more than the present bunch shaping up....they are gonna take malayalam film to worldclass level, competing with the best of world cinema...i promise u that
thx for ur wishes kannan

What advice have you got for young aspiring professionals who are even prepared to risk a comfy job to enter the world of cinema?

Don't you think our filmdom is rather unstructured? What is your take on increasing the transparency particularly regarding the costs and revenue aspects of movies? Is this affecting prospective new investors from entering movies?

How important is training as far as movies are concerned? As movie industry worldwide are becoming more and more organised, isn't it high time regularised institutions be opened, or existing ones given accredition and strengthened inorder to bring the industry on par with world standards? Or are you one who believes talent will take care of itself with minimal on the job training?

All the best.

What advice have you got for young aspiring professionals who are even prepared to risk a comfy job to enter the world of cinema?

Don't you think our filmdom is rather unstructured? What is your take on increasing the transparency particularly regarding the costs and revenue aspects of movies? Is this affecting prospective new investors from entering movies?

How important is training as far as movies are concerned? As movie industry worldwide are becoming more and more organised, isn't it high time regularised institutions be opened, or existing ones given accredition and strengthened inorder to bring the industry on par with world standards? Or are you one who believes talent will take care of itself with minimal on the job training?

All the best.
lemme say- best questiosns of the lot- exellent!!
1. dont mistake ur sensibilty or capacity to enjoy a film or ur for creativity.
to make a film takes completly different skill set which has no connexion
to ur taste levels or comprehension power.
2.the transperency levels are getting better.there wont be dreath for investors ever , cos investin in films has the fastest recovery potential.
and the brand that is built around a producer will cost many more millions otherwise,which translates into profit on other ventures.(ask me if u need more clarification on this point)filmdom is a diff business altogether and its structure isnt comparable or shud not be tried to be structured on preconcieved notions.its a place were u make profit by buying certain things paying more than the market value.so its a unique business with its own rules and regulations were lots of emotions are involved.
3. technical areas need training.lik photography,editing,sound etc...
but no one can train a director,writer or actor. u hav to be born one. either u hav it or dont...

hi kannan,
1.it was due to my sheer luck and personal relationship that i was called to do a film in kerala cafe. not on merit.i am so so glad that he chose me to be a part of it.
but fortunately i yet have no trouble from the industry, which has been always welcoming me . weather it is from the stars side or from the producer/ distributor side. for me my challenge is myself, to find a story and script that inspires me enough to go ahead...work mad on it..with ful passion.
2.of course malyalam films is really looking gud for past 6 months or so,and the whole of industry has to thank ranjith for bringing this change singlehandedly.this is my 17 th year in film profession,i shud say that i hav learned more things in last one year that in last 16 years, yes i am on a learning curve....down few years there are going to be lots of new screens in form of multiplexes, then the demand wil be more for number of films , which ultimately will translate into better films.
moreover i see lots of next gen youngsters with loads of talent, much more than the present bunch shaping up....they are gonna take malayalam film to worldclass level, competing with the best of world cinema...i promise u that
thx for ur wishes kannan


Thanks a lot Sir for answering me...unfortunately i couldn't be online at that time.. so sad I am...17 year in the industry, Oh my goodness... looking for the right script that you are in need, thats something special with a quality director. Expecting some fabulous works from you.. you can do the best...Sir, Ranjith Sir'nekkurich kelkkumbol, I can't tolerate being s far from the industry...

very nice knowing your views in this...being in the industry for 17years, and learning things well in one year, thats something really great to see the happenings and change in the perception of filmy men...Yes ranjith Sir doing an ideal job..Hats off you all...

to ur taste levels or comprehension power.
2.the transperency levels are getting better.there wont be dreath for investors ever , cos investin in films has the fastest recovery potential.
and the brand that is built around a producer will cost many more millions otherwise,which translates into profit on other ventures.(ask me if u need more clarification on this point)filmdom is a diff business altogether and its structure isnt comparable or shud not be tried to be structured on preconcieved notions.its a place were u make profit by buying certain things paying more than the market value.so its a unique business with its own rules and regulations were lots of emotions are involved.
3. technical areas need training.lik photography,editing,sound etc...
but no one can train a director,writer or actor. u hav to be born one. either u hav it or dont...

To become an assistant director (especially under someone like you, having more than 17 yrs in the industry) to start what a new comer exactly to start with? where?

about the 3rd answer, sir, besides your answer, only thing needed is to get experienced in improving our knowledge, isn't it? Sir,Gurunaathanmaare namukk select cheyyaanaavilla ennariyaam. avaraanu namme select cheyyendath, pakshe thaankalepolullavarude assistant aavaan oru maarga nirddhesham nalkaamo?

hi imran,
i think it was not the theme that was below ave, may be it was my capabilities as a director that was below average. i stil feel confident of the theme.
no mrityunjayam was no way connected to 1408. but it was based on a short story by satyjit ray. yet i dunno wat that film is...glad that u liked it.thx imaran
thanks uday :kayyadi:
