Tamil director CS Amudhan says he doesn’t believe in trends because films succeed if they are good, as audiences are always hungry for different films. “There is nothing called as a trend in filmmaking. Good films from different genres have always co-existed as audiences are hungry for content. Films such as Pizza and Naduvula Konjam Pakkatha Kaanom belong to two different genres and yet were successful,” Amudhan told IANS. “It’s the content that decides the fate of a film at the Box-Office, but not some trend,” he added. Having made a successful debut with Tamil spoof comedy Tamizh Padam, he is busy wrapping up his second Tamil film Rendavathu Padam. “We’re trying to keep everything secretive about the film. All I can say about the film is that it’s not a spoof comedy. We want to surprise the audience with the content,” he said. The film features an ensemble cast of Vimal, Aravind Akash, Richard, Vijayalakshmi, Remya Nambeesan, Sanjana Singh, Chetan, Suresh and RS Sivaji.
Amudhan says comedy is a safe genre only if one knows how to work around it well. “It is safe if you know how to do it. Basically, one needs to have it in him or her to play with this genre. As assumed by many, it is not safe if you don’t know the tricks of the trade,” he said. Meanwhile, he is also busy scripting two projects and wants to stay away from comedy for a while.
