"Kanavu Thozhirchalai" , the book which is worth the quote "Must Read". A fictional story on the basement of non fictional incidents happened during 70s to 80s Tamil Cinema. The sequence in each chapters are happened/happening/will happen in cinema industry forever. Sujatha done a tons of research before writing this book. Instead of prologue, there is brief converasation between Sujatha, Actress Lakshmi and Director Mahendran which was interesting. Ending of each characters are awesome. Especia ...more

A brilliant take on Kollywood, this novel deserves a movie version. The good news for the one who wants to make a movie out of this novel is that not much editing is needed in the novel except for replacing mammoth and immovable telephones with mobiles . Deeply ground in the realities of 80s yet ahead of it's times- that's Sujatha for you !

Wonderful way of explaining the characters and Sujatha explained what happening behind the screens in the movie under production. The way the censor board acts is explained.

Hero of the book Arun Vijay and the way how he reacts after his 4 continuous disaster movies and how he scares about his future is presented with reality by Sujatha.

What I like about Sujatha is every man even a Hero has his own evil side which is not aware to public and its explained in this Book after Padhavikaga (another bo

Neatly written narration - I read this while it was published in Vikatan Weekly serial. Nothing has changed in the Tamil Film World.
"'அபததம ! இநதப படததில எனன இருககுனு புரியலை பாஸகர , புரியவே இலலை. இனனிககும பிரமிபபா இருககு !'
'இநத ஃபீலடில புரிஞசுககிறதுககே முயறசி பணணககூடாது .'"

A must read,the best of Sujatha,portrays the sad and ugly side of glamorous stardom,the way how cinema and censorboard works,I loved every chapter,every line feels so genuine,only issue I had is that there is scene where a father meets his newborn son for the first time, it feels so dry authour could have stressed out that part or he tried to show that charecter emoition less.this book is not for kids as it shows some sexually explict thing, my rating would be 4.5 out of 5 .this is the highest I ...more

Probably the second best novel about film industry written in Tamil, closely preceded by 'Karaindha Nizhalgal' by Asokamitran. The story is raw, dark with portions covering all film making departments from actors, directors to light boys.
Well etched characters with trademark brilliant narration from Sujatha makes it a single sitting read.

This book speaks about incidents happening in cine world. Sujatha doesnt speak much about the famous actors and speaks about actors who generally are not protagonist. This book enhanced knowledge on how censor board functions, what happens behind screens unlike what we see on screens. Good read..
