Team work - The essence of any Film

Mention the movie Enthiran or Robo, first thing that strikes our mind is all time favorites Rajnikanth and Aishwarya Rai Bachchan and of course Shankar for his unusual thinking and capabilities which took Tamil cinema to international levels.
No doubts about the fact that these three people truly deserve a loud hand of applause for the way they fulfilled their duties and almost touched the mark of excellence. Not to miss AR Rahman too, who shares a vast credit for adding on to the success of the movie. Infact for this particular movie, the response was such that many Indian audience was left bewildered and it took them some time to sink in with the feeling that it actually is an Indian movie and moreover a Tamil movie. Such was the response and movie surely would be remembered for long.

Well…just envision that movie devoid of those flexible dance moves, which made us like Aishwarya and Rajni more than ever. How can we forget their ball dance scene, can we? No. But then how can we not remember or not even notice the name ‘Raju Sundaram’, the man behind all these moves. Likewise can you imagine the amount of imagination, creativity and hard work that went into designing the costumes of these leading actors, the decade of crucial planning that went into pre production stage? Not really. No wonder why we didn’t notice the names of Manish Malhotra and Mary E who worked together and created the splendid wardrobe.
We did clap on the train scene, the way Rajini did all his stunts and when he transforms into kali with all the weapons around him and so on and so forth. The flair that created all these scenes were Vogt and Yuen Woo Ping. Only if we had patience to notice the rolling credits, we would have noticed along with so many Indians how much of foreign talent too made a huge contribution to make it a movie we see today comfortably sitting on our theatre chairs.
Making a movie is no cakewalk and many tragedies and unexpected moments do strike, often with which audience remains unaware with. The same happened with this movie as well. Sujatha Rangarajan originally was announced as the dialogue writer of film, but since he died during the production stages, Madhan Karky Vairamuthu was named as his successor. But whatever is the case, the real challenge is to surmount all this, and yet entertain the audience and make the movie full paisa vasool.
It’s as simple as this. Once we are constructing a new home we do look for the designers, engineers, builders, carpenter and so on and so forth. Similarly movie is nothing but a foundation laid down with the hard work of so many people.
Of course we have full rights to assess and appreciate each and every movie we come across, but least we can do is just spend some time with the credits and atleast notice which all people have contributed in what all-creative and technical methods.
I would continue to surprise you with many such designations in my next article. Happy reading!!!!!!!!
