Arun & Thamizhstudio

M. Arun's Thamizh Studio has revolutionized the public discourse on cinema, in particular that on Tamil cinema and its aesthetics and its socio-political engagement. Similarly, his online Tamil cinema journal Pesamozhi, initially a monthly and now published as a bi-monthly, has created a space for iconic writers like the historian S. Theodore Baskaran, and Tamil cinema's most prolific scholar and most widely read Marxist thinker in Tamilnadu, Yamuna Rajendran, to regularly write and engage with the aesthetics of Tamil cinema and push the limits as far as the expectations regarding its future is concerned as far as cinema as an art form which is capable of revitalizing the debates around contemporary issues surrounding the appropriation of Periyar's Dravidian movement by the DMK and the AIADMK, and the silent witnessing of the genocide in the neighboring Sri Lanka.

Most important, Marudu Trotsky, arguably, the greatest living painter and multimedia artist in Tamilnadu who is also a designer and art director, has written his very precious memoir in Pesamozhi-an achievement for Arun and his commitment towards quality as Marudu is a busy artist and it is not easy to get him to write on a regular basis for a film journal.

Arun's background as a highly successful infotech engineer who pursued his dreams of filmmaking by going to London to do his masters in cinema marks his uncompromising attitude as far as the pursuits of his dreams regarding good cinema is concerned. He has remained truthful to the cause of good cinema by his strong criticism of anything less than what he considers as the best in terms of good cinema as defined by the masters/auteurs belonging various historical movements of cinema like the New Wave, Neorealism and Indian New Cinema.

It is, therefore, not a surprise that the iconic documentarian Anand Patwardhan accepted the coveted Lenin Award, installed by Arun in the name of Tamil cinema's foremost editor/filmmaker B. Lenin. Arun, thus, is incomparable as a scholar, researcher, editor, blogger, and critic of Tamil cinema, and unparalleled in his achievements as far as creating a healthy and multi-vocal space for discussing Tamil cinema, and in particular for writing and creating short films and documentaries, as epitomized by his book Naadu Kadandha Kalai (Meipporul 2014). His publishing house has brought out books on the Sri Lankan conflict and cinema by the legendary Yamuna Rajendran, and a book on cinematography during this era of the digital by the famous cinematographer Vijay Armstrong.

Arun's passion for cinema, thus, is matched only by his painstaking efforts and unmatched energy.

Wishing you the very best,
