Kollywood moves to Madurai
Tamil filmdom is now moving to Madurai. At this moment eight films are being shot in and around Madurai. The sentiment that movies filmed in Madurai have become box office hits was the only reason that attracted film makers to the temple city
THE DIRECTORS and producers of Kollywood have now started moving to Madurai after the successful screening of national award winning Paruthiveeran and the latest commercial hit Subramaniapuram.


You won’t be surprised to note that at this moment a battery of eight films are being shot in and around Madurai. Madurai was once the capital of the great Pandyas and it is known as a temple city where the famous Meenakshi temple is located. In the political circle there was a strong belief that those who capture Madurai will rule Tamilnadu. Whether this is true or not, Madurai has always played a vital role in the political arena.


Now the Tamil filmdom has started its campaign in Madurai. Almost all the streets of Madurai have been highlighted in movies. Madurai based stories Virumandi Ghillie, Pithamagan Kadhal, Paruthiveeran and now Subramaniapuram are basically stories of people directly connected with Madurai.


The yesteryear youth director who based his stories on rural background Bharathi Raja, the king of music Ilayaraja Vijaykanth the comedians Vadivelu and Vivek are from Madurai.


New young talented directors like Bala, Ammeer, Samudrakkant, and Sasi Kumar of Subramaniapuram fame are from the same place. But, these factors never came together to move to Madurai. The sentiment that movies filmed in Madurai have become box office hits was the only reason that attracted film makers to Madurai.
