Machismo down south…

Thanks Sharmila…

No, no, it is not what you think. Do not let your meandering minds stray after viewing the topic of this post. I wish to only stick to dwelling on machismo in our films down south. Nothing more or nothing less. Fresh from viewing two recent Tamil films, I thought it would be an opportune time to dwell on extreme levels of machismo prevalent down south to the Vindhyas. One of them that I watched was the Vijay starrer Sura. Sura in Tamil means ‘Shark’. In Tamil cinema it is quite common to name our action heroes after every conceivable predator in the animal kingdom. After all, who makes movies for the lesser known actress, let alone naming a movie after them? Those days have been long lost after Sridevi and Co retired. It is no surprise that the second movie that I wish to share my thoughts on is called “Singam” (Lion).
