Sri Lankan Tamil cinema


Sri Lankan Tamil cinema

Sri Lankan Tamil cinema, the Tamil language film industry in the Sri Lankan city of Jaffna, is not as developed as Sinhala cinema or its Indian counterpart, the Tamil cinema of Kodambakkam, Chennai, Tamil Nadu. This is especially due to the high production rates of the influential commercial Tamil films from Tamil Nadu, India and the long run ethnic civil war in Sri Lanka. Tamils contributed significantly to Sinhala cinema as well as Indian Tamil cinema. Only a few Tamil language films were produced in the Northern Province of Sri Lanka. Earlier Tamil movies produced were all most destroyed or unrecovered due to civil war. The Sri Lankan Tamil cinema history started from December 29, 1951 todate completed fifty nine years.[1]
