 Times of India article On Endhiran(Robot) controversy with write up on me

Dear friends,

        By this time, the name Endhiran(Robot) -the Rajnikanth, Aishwarya starring tamil science fiction film dubbed into telugu and hindi might have become very familiar to you.

        Aside from the record budget for the film and equally record breaking collections, the film has run into controversy with two tamil authors claiming the story as theirs.

      It would be interesting to know that i too wanted to work in that film and sent a short story "Iyanthira malar" meaning "Machine Flower" to Director Shankar and made a wish to work in the film. One of the Assistant directors informed me over phone that they have already taken a team and I could not be accommodated.

    Now the film has been released and  has run into controversy. Seeing the interest generated by the film and it's controversy Times of India wanted to  do a report on science fiction. Me and some others in our Tamil science fiction arena were interviewed. The article titled "Robot to their rescue" has appeared on 7th Novemeber issue of Times of India. I , along with some others find mention in the report.

 The article is available at http://timesofindia.indiatimes.com/city/chennai/Robot-to-their-rescue/articleshow/6881559.cms

So, if a sci-fi, either a novel or film, want to go higher in the rungs, it is imperative that it must serve to the sentiments of Tamil viewers whose mind-sets are still to grow to appreciate pure science flicks. ‘Robot to Their Rescue’ is an interesting write with amazing inputs from people like you. A sci-fi writer, you have a bright future waiting for you. Wish you good luck.

Tamil-minds swathed in sentiments and emotions never groom themselves or are groomed to appreciate sci-fi [ novels or films] sans romance, love and motherly/sisterly sentiments et al. Enthiran blaze a new trail and shake up the laid -back Tamils because it has both science and romance… a blend of ape and angel. The film would not have smashed the box-office and caught the people’s fancy, had it only some scientific theories packaged into an action movie without love and other tugging at heart’s sentiments.

Yes, ‘Enthiran’ [the Robot], an altogether different fare, a sci-fi genre having a live-action robot as hero, is scorching the box-office amazingly. A Kollywood’s new catch, people lap up Enthiran as it offers a right mix of science and romance. Sujatha, the popular Tamil writer, had made earnest attempts to bring to the fore some of his sci-fi novels, but they haven’t fared well as his other love and romance genres did. A few other writers too did fancy Sujatha and they too failed to make grades.
