For the second successive time, Prabhu Solomon has scored as a director. Following his Mynaa in 2010, Solomon has delivered another super-duper hit with Kumki which released a couple of weeks back.
Though the film has been doing well in theatres, it is said that the audiences are not so ‘pleased’ with the climax which is very different from what is usually shown in Tamil films.
The hero doesn’t get his heroine in the climax and the film ends up with a question mark, leaving ample space for a sequel to be made in future. It is reported that Solomon has been getting many requests from his fans, movie-goers and others to change and ‘re-shoot’ the climax in such a manner which would give the film a ‘happy ending’ and would also help the audiences leave theatres with a happy frame of mind.
Amid unconfirmed reports that Solomon has almost decided to change the climax, we got in touch with Solomon. “I never entertained any idea to change the climatic sequence of Kumki. In fact, I had been getting congratulatory messages and appreciative phone-calls from far-away places from fans who love the film’s climax. Many have confessed to me that they were moved to tears by the climax.
“Climax of a film, in particular, is conceived by a director only after lengthy discussions and consultation with his assistants and with his own conscience. Each and every sequence is in fact, set up only after thoughtful sessions. In such a backdrop, deciding to change the climax would only mean that I’m attempting to test my own self-confidence and wisdom.
“At any cost, I’m not ready to lose my self-confidence in me as a film-maker,” concludes Solomon as he rules out any changes in the film’s climax.
