Ranjith inspired by Tamil Cinema
He may have made his mark in Malayalam cinema, but it is Tamil cinema which interests the ace director. We are talking about Ranjith, the director behind popular Malayalam movies like 'Pranchiyettan and the Saint" and 'Kerala Cafe". Though it was direction that introduced Ranjith to the world of South Indian cinema, the man wrote a number of scripts for small budget films during his early years in Mollywood.

When asked what excites him more the director replies that he works for the audience and does thing that appeals them. Be it a scriptwriter or a director, Ranjith stresses on the fact that he has always kept the audience in mind before involving himself with any project.

Presently, it is the quality of Tamil cinema that excites Ranjith, the most. In a recent statement, Ranjith candidly admits that though it was the Malayalam industry which initially served as inspiration for films made in Tamil, the case seems to have changed with the passing years. It is the Tamil industry that filmmakers look up to for inspiration these days. Though the director is also quick to add that he may be a misfit for Kollywood after having worked for the maximum part of his career in Mollywood.

After delivering a hit with 'Pranchiyettan and The Saint", Ranjith will now take a break before starting work on a future project.
