Director cum Actor Parthiban who is currently busy promoting his upcoming film “Iravin Nizhal”, in a recent interview, expressed his displeasure over how Tamil cinema functions. Parthiban said that he feels dejected when the distributors and OTT houses ask about the star value without seeing the project. The filmmaker also criticized how Tami cinema is investing more money on the star instead of concentrating on the making.

“Without the belief on the audience and their taste in welcoming experimental creations, people like me would die. There is no point in people like me living alive. No one is believing in people like me. No one is ready to buy the film we make” Parthiban said in the interview.

“When we try to sell the film in theatre, they are asking who is the saleable star in the project. Even while trying to sell the film in OTT, they are asking who are the actors. They are asking for a face that would sell them the film” the director cum actor said.

“Generally, in cinema, making cost will be the highest comparing to the salary of the stars. In Hollywood, if a film’s budget is Rs. 500 crore, the making cost will be Rs. 400 crore. In our place, if the film’s budget is Rs. 200 crore, Rs. 125 crores of it goes to the hero. They are spending Rs. 50 crore for the making and paying Rs. 25 crore for the director. The director is getting paid that much money only to constrain the budget within Rs. 45 crore, not to make a good film” the filmmaker said in the interview.

“This is the reason why we are getting films that has no intent” the filmmaker added. Video of Parthiban’s speech is going viral in social media platforms with fans reacting to it in various ways.
