Tamil Cinema Flasafy
There is a general fear among sound mixers in Tamil cinema that the dialogue track might not be intelligible unless it is significantly louder than anything else. This means subtlety and any sort of voice dynamic acting suffers.
I have a feeling that it is not just the lack of standards in theatre audio that is the problem.
Tamil cinema works this way:
Most people are averse to any kind of innovation be it technical or aesthetic.
Most films do not succeed.
Consequently a film's failure is attributed to that innovation and then is promptly killed. If on the other hand a film succeeds then that innovation becomes fashionable enough to become the new dogma.
If a very subtly mixed track happens to feature in a hit film... my future is made.

Saw MMA in Tuticorin. Theater audio sucked, couldn't catch half the dialogues, which killed the movie for me. Not that the movie was good, but the audio literally killed any chance that the movie might have had down south.

Was there any difference in your work in Unnai Pol oruvan and Manmadhan Ambu? I found they were different in the above aspects you have mentioned.
