Ganapathy Balamurugan is not, however, stopped making films after “
Enakku Veru Engum Kilaigal Kidaiyathu,” even if his one new movie could not be more different from the goofball comedies of legendary actor Goundamani who was given a lead role. And the film can be really considered a remarkable journey for a director like Balamurugan who wanted to keep comedy genre alive on the screen.
It is hard to recall after seeing the movie that it had the less impressive effort of Goundamani to make his comedy really believable when we draw a comparison with ‘’49-O’’ which was a 2015 Tamil political satire film. Director Ganapathy Balamurugan made some mistakes in choosing an unfocused script and even did not handle the star in the best way that is why his first debut as a director was not a shiny example of a perfect Kollywood commercial potboiler.
Thus, we can consider that his first project was an inauspicious beginning. We often know that the first film of any director is always a passion project where the director can have more control in choosing the script, while the second or third project becomes harder to choose and even more difficult to get made.
Hence, Ganapathy Balamurugan’s success may only get a credit that he failed to make an impact for whatsoever reasons and left an impact with more negativity. But then failure always leads a pillar to success in one’s life.
Therefore, we can firmly believe that the director would come back with a strong script in any genres whether it is a comedy, serious or sentimental films even. It is true that Ganapathy Balamurugan’s first project failed to find success despite Goundamani was cast.
We can only assume now that if at all it was a movie of comedies in grand scale, the film could have been a hit. We are looking forward to a future project of Ganapathy Balamurugan definitely, but with a huge margin of success.
