as long as films are concerned,the characters are more important. the
audience must be able to empathise with the character and get involved
with the proceedings. the rest are just extras. we have more and more
films which are character driven(not star)which is a healthy sign for
tamil cinema.

Films like 'Aadukalam' 'Aranya Kandam' 'Pesum Padam' 'Mouna Guru''Kanchivaram' 'Madrasupattinam' & 'Deiva Thirumagal' merited a mention in the article.
